"Life's too short to be spent fighting. Sit down and enjoy the world and nature around you instead."
Amelia Artemia Averyonna
Amelia is small, some might say tiny. Standing in at a mere four-and-a-half feet tall and weighing a little less then a girl her age should, she has a very slight build and many people think she doesn't eat enough for her age. Her vampiric heritage results in her possessing very fair, flawless skin that burns easily when exposed the sunlight, resulting in her carrying an umbrella everywhere until nighttime.
Outside of school, she tends to wear either t-shirts and jeans or sundresses in the summer, depending on her mood, and sweaters to go with her jeans in the winter. Her preferred colors appear to be shades of blue and green along with white. In the summer, she wear sandals but boots in the winter.
Like her Master, Amelia is talented in the arts of drawing and painting and has a near photographic memory when it comes to landscapes, which are her primary subject of interest for said art. She also has a talent for gardening and takes care of several plants around the school and the teams main base of operations. She has also taken up an interest in cooking and often helps Nora, trying to make sure her fellow devil doesn't somehow hurt herself (seriously, how do you hurt yourself preparing salad?)
As a Dhampir, Amelia has access to some of the vampire race's abilities, such as the ability to control bats and use them as scouts or transforming into a swarm of them to escape a dangerous situation. However, she really shines outside of her vampiric abilities.
Amelia has a strong affinity for Elementals and is able to summons several she has formed contracts with at aid her and her peerage in battle. Her current abilities don't allow her to contract with anything as strong as a primordial-class elemental, as the strain could possibly kill her, and she is instead limited to lesser-class elementals.
Her current contracts are with a lesser earth elemental she calls Firma, who resembles several rocks joined together in a vaguely humanoid shape, standing about two feet tall. Firma is able to reinforce stone structures to make them more resilient to damage, summon and hurl large stones and earth spikes as a form of offence, and summon domes of earth to protect itself and others. She also has a lesser wind elemental she calls Aery, who is another scout she can use, taking the form visibly wind currents in the shape of a small bird. Aery has no offensive abilities, but being a creature composed of wind, is very hard to confine and can summon strong winds to slow others or redirect some projectile attacks like arrows. Amelia's final spirit is Rain, a lesser Water elemental, taking the form of a two-foot tall female humanoid composed of water from the waist up and a water spout from the waist down. Rain can use high pressured water to attack and can summon small quantities of water with healing properties to treat minor wounds.
All three elementals boast a high resistance to their element but are incredibly weak to the opposite, save Aery who need to be imprisoned in a solid container of any kind to be stopped. Rain and Firma will disappear if hit is a decent Fire or Wind attribute attack respectively.
Outside of her summons, Amelia knows all the basic Devil spells
At the moment, Amelia is actually rather weak and does not boast a lot of strengths, but rather potential. With her talent for summoning and affinity for elementals, she has the possibility to become a versatile and powerful asset on the battlefield. As a Bishop, she boasts powerful magical potential and given time, she could learn magic outside of her specialty.
Currently, Amelia's best strength is as an indirect scout, using her bats and Aery as a means to get a lay of the land and her enemies' locations easily without putting herself and others in harms way. She can also provide minor support with Rain and Firma but not to the extent of some of her fellow peerage members.
In terms of combat, Amelia's biggest weakness is that she is largely a non-combatant. She has no skills and hand-to-hand combat, having to rely on her transformation ability to get out of such a scenario should she find herself in one. She doesn't know any offensive or defensive magic, relying entirely on her summons to do the work for her, despite their relatively low power.
Her weaknesses in combat are compounded by her poor physical state. Amelia lacks stamina due to her preference to do more relaxing, less strenuous activities. If she is not able to use her magic, she will not last long and can likely be taken down in a matter of seconds.
Another exploitable weakness is her higher then average sensitivity to sunlight for a Dhampir. While most of her kind find sunlight simply uncomfortable, Amelia finds it outright painful and burns incredibly easily when exposed, even if it's just a form of magic mimicking sunlight.
Amelia is a kind, gentle, and caring young girl, but also incredibly shy and low in the self-esteem department. Amelia will never talk to someone she doesn't know unless she absolutely has to. She's even hesitant to talk to her peerage and voice her opinion unless directly asked. The exception is Ixveria, whom she respects and views as an older sister figure.When she does talk her tone is often soft and low, as if she is still scared to speak her own words, and she often avoids looking at the one she is addressing. If she is feeling embarrassed or upset, she will sometimes use her umbrella to hide her face so such emotions are not shown to others.
Past the shy exterior, should one get past it, is the3 kind and gentle girl Amelia truly is. She cares greatly for the members of her peerage, who she views as her family. She will push herself as far as she can and beyond to help them, even if it comes at the expense of her own health and safety. The only time she'll hesitate in doing so is if combat is involved, as Amelia detests violence and will only take part in fighting if she absolutely has to.
Around her elementals, Amelia is much more open, finding them easier to talk to then other humanoids. She treats her contracted elementals very kindly and hates that she has to use them in combat, even though it is part of their contract. They are usually the ones that she turns to when she needs to talk about her problems, as she doesn't want to bother her 'family' with what she might view as a minor problem.
Deep inside of her, Amelia harbors a deep hatred for pure-blood vampires and their xenophobic ways. She does not view herself as subject to their orders and is secretly glad if she never hears from their for the rest of her life, unlikely as that may be.
Amelia is a member of the Tepes faction of vampires, born from a one-night stand between her vampiric father and human mother. Her mother's name was Ellis Averyonna but she doesn't not know or does not care for her father's name. Shortly after her birth, her father came and took her and her mother, making them both servants in his castle. However, he did not treat either of them with respect, looking down on Ellis and viewing Amelia in an even worse light. Both were treated rather poorly in the beginning but things didn't get any better as time went on. In fact, it would be easy for one to say that they only got worse.
Amelia's father was a pure-blooded extremist and only kept her around since he had a sense of duty towards family. Her mother was nothing more then a plaything to him for that one night and a servant from Amelia's birth on. His love for his daughter was non-existent and he did not hesitate to hit her if she aggravated him in even the slightest. Ellis tried her best to protect her daughter from her father, but that was not easy to do when they lived within his own castle. As Amelia grew older, her father's temper grew shorter and him simply hitting her would escalate to him beating her when angry, even if she had done nothing to anger him herself.
Things finally reached their breaking point a year ago, when the worse case scenario occurred. The Carmilla Faction attacked her father's castle and he and his forces retaliated in kind. During the attack, Amelia and Ellis stuck together and tried to avoid all the violence. However, a they where inevitable caught up in the crossfire and Ellis died protecting her daughter from a stray magical missile. Despite hoping that it was all a dream, the young girl was forced to watch as her only supporter died in front of her.
Amelia's father and his forces won the battle and when he discovered Ellis' fate, he simply had her disposed of like trash, glad to finally be rid of the woman. Amelia, already in a terrible state due to grief, finally lost her temper and talked back at her father, calling him out on all the things she had been forced to put up with under his roof and his hypocrisy in regards to his family and his treatment of them. Infuriated at this little outburst and well aware of his daughter's inability to stand sunlight for prolonged periods, her father was more then happy to finally have a reason (in his mind) to be rid of her and had her chained up to a large stone about a mile from his estate and well out of the way of any human settlements.
When the sun finally rose, it was painful for Amelia but the longer she was out there, the more intense the pain got as she felt her skin beginning to burn. She felt like she was on fire and eventually, she blacked out from the pain, part of her accepting her fate to be out here to suffer until she passed away. A larger part of her resisted though, and cried out for help from anyone. She knew of Angels, Fallen Angels, and Devils. While she doubted Angels would ever come to save one of her kind, she was more then willing to have her prayers answered by one of the other two races.
Her silent prayers were answered and summoned Ixervia to her after she had been trapped on the rock for almost three whole days. Incredibly weak and desperate to live, Amelia did not hesitate in forming a contract with the Devil in front of her. It would take her a while to recover from her ordeal but when she did, she immediately began studying magic to try and make herself as useful as possible. It was during her studies that she discovered her affinity for elementals and summoning magic, quickly forming contracts with Firma, Rain, and Aery. Now a days, she happy to live a peaceful life, just enjoying each day and her freedom of her father.
