Bender type: Nonbender
Amaya stands at an above average 5'11 but does not let her height make her look awkward. She is slim but very graceful in poise. She has blonde hair and blue eyes and dresses very plainly.
Amaya is a very depressing person. She mopes and mopes. She finds herself feeling stuck, with little room to breathe. Amaya has a very gloomy yet bold attitude. She’s most definitely not a coward. Being very solemn and serious tends to be. Her favorite hobby is dancing. It’s one of the few times she’ll portray her feelings to their deepest core. Being Neutral Good, she has some respect for law but also finds herself resenting it at times.
Despite her obvious melancholy personality, she’s a very sympathetic person. She’s gentle in nature and graceful with actions. She however finds herself unable to love. It’s difficult. Especially after...a certain incident that she never wishes to speak of. In Republic City, she hopes to start a new life of less pain and more freedom.
Misery. Suffering. Pain. I know these words all too well. These words reach to the bottom of my being and pull out my most awful memories. I remember it. I remember him. I may never love again, thanks to him. Screams, blood, and agony surrounded me that one day. I felt so helpless. My entire soul trembles at the thought of recounting such events, but I must do so. It’s time to move past these events.
I was born in the Earth Republic to two loving parents. We lived in a small village near Ba Sing Se. I still remember the vacations we use to take to Ba Sing Se. My parents nurtured me, and I loved them so. I was curious, so I saw the world in these beautiful colors. Everything was perfect. I was a child with joy and love surrounding me. My parents grew my interest in dance once I discovered it. Soon enough, my parents sent me to school. That’s where I met the one that ruined my life. His name...his name was Ryota.
Ryota and I are nearly the same age. He’s only 3 months older than me. I’d never known, but he lived in the same village as me. When he was 6, he discovered his earthbending. I would never follow in such a path. I remember when he’d protect me from bullies at school. I was picked on for being so frail and delicate. I miss those days, when Ryota stood up for me. Soon enough, we were best friends. We always played together.
Years went by faster than I could notice, soon enough we were both teenagers, 16 or 17 years old. His hormones always made him desire me, but I always shut him down, telling him I wasn’t ready. This was true. I never told him I loved him back. It was just too hard to admit. I still held up my interest in dancing, getting more and more immersed in it. My mother always told me I had so much elegance and grace when I danced. Eventually, when I was nineteen, I took up a job and started providing for my parents. It made me busier and busier by the day. I didn’t see Ryota as much. I always wondered how he was doing.
One day, I was on my way home from work to my parents. It was a quiet and peaceful night. I came inside the house and dropped my stuff off. Suddenly, I heard a scream coming from upstairs. My spine stiffened, and every hair on my body stood straight up. I crept upstairs, not making a sound. Who did I see standing over the dead bodies of my parents? Ryota. I threw up, and he saw me. My mind went hazy at this point, but he mentioned his obsession for me ever since we met. When I began denying him, he had always assumed it was because of my parents telling me I shouldn’t be in a relationship. The last thing I remember him saying was “Now nothing can keep us apart, sweetie.” He tackled me in blind lust. I struggled and told him I didn’t love him ,which was now partially true. He lay on top of me, in blind shock. Ryota then decided that if he couldn’t have me, nobody could. With that, he pulled out his dagger and stabbed me. This was the coldest feeling I had ever felt. I then heard the faint sound of people downstairs. After that, I fainted.
When I was awoken, I was sitting in a pool of water. I had a kind water healer next to me. She explained how officers came to my rescue. However, they were somehow unable to catch Ryota. I tensed up at the thought. He was still out there. He might have wanted to come for me again. The woman also mentioned my parents were long dead by the time they arrived here with me, which I could’ve assumed myself. For the next few days, I remained under medical care. When I was released, I knew exactly what I had to. Run. I ran all the way to another state in the Earth Republic. I was still not confident I was safe. While in a restaurant, I overheard about the citizenship program, and saw it as my golden opportunity to run away. I packed everything valuable to me and found a quick plane to Republic City. The plane ride was very short, so I arrived about a half a day later. With a new start ahead of me, I took my stuff and ran off to find an apartment.

This effect can only last for a few minutes, as it requires intense concentration. (Achieved after 7 months)
This crossbow is Amaya's preferred choice of ranged weaponry. Made from a combination of materials, the crossbow is breakable yet not flammable or bendable. Although not a master at using ranged weapons, she makes good use of it combined with her poisonous arrows for stealthy take downs.
Amaya's backup for her crossbow. Made from similar materials as the crossbow, the bow has similar qualities as her crossbow. She uses it only if her crossbow has been broken.
