Initially a pawn of her witch mother, Amy later befriended Buffy before turning herself into a rat. Shortly before her transformation, after being treated like dirt by a popular boy at her school, Amy sought vigilante voodoo justice and transformed him into a girl in order to teach him a lesson. Buffy caught wind of her prank and encouraged Amy to change him back and not stoop down to his level. Later on, Amy turned herself into a rat, but was unable to remove her own spell, being kept as a pet by Buffy's magically inclined friend Willow, who was unable to find a way to restore her back to a human until recently.
Amy eventually turned to the dark side, going so far as to deceive Willow and join up with Warren Mears, residing in the crater that was once Sunnydale, until they were discovered by the United States Army during an expedition. In exchange for full immunity and release for the both of them, Amy agreed to help take Buffy down. Attacking Buffy's Scotland citadel, Amy put Buffy into a mystical sleep and kidnapped Willow for Warren, who bore a considerable grudge against Willow for flaying him alive a few years earlier. As Warren tortured Willow, Amy faced off against Satsu and an awakened Buffy, who used Amy's fear of her mother to their advantage to catch her off guard and defeat her, sending her to teleport away with Warren in tow.
POWERS + WEAKNESSES
Amy is a "natural" witch with an inherited talent to manipulate magical forces allowing her to perform rituals, spells, curses, and hexes. Her growth in power has allowed her to also raise the dead to do her bidding.
Amy's spells protect her from brute force and physical harm, but her own power can rivalled by those that wield greater power.
