Amaya is the embodiment of controlled chaos. She loves laughing and making others laugh. She can be selfless in her compassion and generosity, but harsh in her revenge for being wronged. She prides herself on her wit and intelligence, often taking time to consider her responses before speaking. When she doesn't, she is known to be a bit cutting with her wit, but rarely cruel.
She is open-minded, loyal, observant, respectful, and kind, but she can also be stubborn, petulant, forgetful, rude, thoughtless, and inappropriate.
Her playfulness hides a darkness and a deep pain that she will not discuss except with her closest intimates.



Amaya was born to the sister-in-law of a very wealthy Boston merchant who happened to possess the controversial view that female children were just as deserving of education as his male offspring. She was fortunate that she not only attended a dame school, but was given private tutelage in languages, mathematics, and other 'scandalous' subjects when it came to educating females.
Her mind absorbed the information like a sponge absorbs water and it wasn't long before she was assisting her uncle in planning shipping routes, predicting shortages and abundances of goods, and growing the family fortune. It wasn't uncommon for her to write one letter in French and then turn around to write another in German.
She was also well-versed in the feminine arts of managing a household, cooking, sewing, knitting/crocheting, embroidering, and such.
At the age of 19, after many of her contemporaries were already wed and mothers, she met a man who's name she refuses to share.

Amaya's Rules:

1.) Trust no one until you can trust them... And even then, don't
2.) A friend will provide an alibi without question.... A best friend will help hide the body.... The very best put a bullet in the other person's skull to make sure they don't come back.
3.) Don't make promises you can't/won't keep... Or threats you lack the power to back up.
4.) Information is currency... Never be broke.
5.) Nothing is free. There is always a price to be paid
6.) Look pretty because while your enemy is focused on your looks, you can slide the knife in his heart.
7.) Be a lady until it is no longer an option. If you act crude first, no one will ever believe the lady.
8.) Knowledge is power. Never be helpless.



I'm through with doubt
There's nothing left for me to figure out
I've paid a price, and I'll keep paying
I'm not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down
