Question type: Character(Volturi) Question
How I've researched it: I didn't. I have no idea where to look for the answer and I'm not going near SMeyer's site because I don't want to see the quotes. I don't think she has the answer there anyway.
My query: Jane is described as being small. Is she a child or is she just short like Alice? And is she black or just dark skinned?

Jane is 13 years old. I don't think her skin was described, just the cloak covering it, which was dark. Stephenie answers the question about Jane's age in a Personal Correspondence.

Jane is Caucasian. In November of 2006 at a Lexicon party in Nashville, Stephenie described her as small, with blonde hair about the same color as her skin. Her twin brother Alec has a similar appearance. (She agreed that Dakota Fanning would make a good Jane, although I think dakota Fanning might be too old at this point.)

The back-story on them is that Aro had been watching them, waiting for them to grow up so that he could turn them. They were gifted as humans, so he suspected they would also be extraordinary vampires, and he wanted to add those gifts to the Volturi arsenal.

He was forced to turn them as children when they were to be burned as witches. In revenge, he massacred their town and burned it to the ground.
