Amelie comes from a family that believes in blood purity, although she has a secret: She's absolutely fascinated with Muggles. She finds them and their inventions interesting, loves reading their stories and studying their subjects. Of course though, she does all of this in secret. Her father highly believes in blood purity, and wants nothing to do with muggle borns and muggles. Her mother however was less like that. She wonders why they got married in the first place, but suspects it was arranged.
Sadly though, her mother died when she was young, leaving her to face her father alone. When her father discovered Amelie's fascination, he got really mad. He told her to get rid of her muggle items and such. Even though she had a deep hatred of her father, she complied. She threw most away but kept the ones she loved the most. She grew up reading muggle books in the middle of the night and tinkering with muggle items when no one was home. She developed an interest with Mythology, and wants to study that at Hogwarts. Soon she realized she could do nothing to gain her father's approval, she stopped trying, although doesn't like to talk about the subject.
She was overjoyed when she got accepted to Hogwarts and packed most of her Muggle items with her so that way she won't have to do it in secret anymore. She was so excited she could leave the said 'hellhole' that was her home.
She made many friends in Hogwarts, such as Sascha, Colin, and Aaron to name a few. In her first and second year, Colin admitted to having a crush on her, though she didn't reciprocate, but was a tad bit disappointed when she found out he was dating Twila. She got over it soon enough, and soon met a boy named Aaron. Aaron is her one of her close friends which she stutters and acts shyly around, and that's because she has a major crush on him, though she knows that she is in, what muggle books refers to as "the friend zone". She'd have to say her closest friend or ami at Hogwarts is Sascha, even Aaron can't take that spot.
Summer before sixth year was Amelie's prep time for Operation: Be More Outgoing. She worked on meeting new people, even got a pen pan from Beauxbatons, tried getting rid of her stutter, and trying more to speak her mind. Her one weakness? Her dad. Of course, all her efforts simmer into a pile of failure once he starts to speak. She can't exactly get rid of him, pureblooded friends that both he and she approve of are hard to come by. She settled for writing to her friends, using the Hall family owl.
She was arranged to get married to Felix Nott, for the sake of keeping blood 'pure', but she's backed out of that agreement. She's unofficially disowned, as of late, and living by herself in a tiny, crammed apartment, adjusting to a normal place after living in an extravagant mansion. It's taking some getting used to, but it's the first step to freedom, so she guesses she can deal with it for now. She's realized that if she doesn't want to be outgoing, that's okay, at least she's accepted herself even if it's just a little bit now.
