* Scythe is actual size compared to Amelia.Bio:
Amelia grew up with a strict mother and an intimidating father. She also had a brother who developed a serious stage of cancer, and he was pretty much bound to a wheelchair as he attended school. Her mother is very hard on her, not only because she is the older child, but because Amelia is very rebellious and hyper (like her mom when she was younger). Amelia and her mom don't get along because of their major personality clashes, so her mom refuses to speak to her in English and instead speaks in Mandarin. Amelia can understand most of what she says, but she doesn't know enough to talk back. Because of these barriers, Amelia tends to be quiet in home environments, even when in other people's homes. If she ever wants to talk at home, she'll hang out with her brother or talk to her father, usually in Russian (his native language).
In school, Amelia is too hyper and full of random thoughts to focus, so she tends to either skip or forget to do her work when she does attend class. People fear her because of her spontaneous attitude and the fact that she could snap at anything that rubs her the wrong way. The main reason they fear her though is because she gets very defensive over her brother and his condition. This makes Evan, her brother, angry because it affects how people see him and has scared away quite a few friends of his. One day, he finally snaps and expresses the deep hatred he had for Amelia, and refused to speak to her after that. He died about a month after this silence.
At exactly one year after Evan's death, Amelia (now at age 17) awakens her powers as the Ace of Hearts. This is a rather exclusive rank to the Izbrannika** forces and she carries it with both great pride and fear. While training as an Izbrannika (second outfit is her training uniform), she learns that she can sometimes make contact with the world of the dead. Since then, she's had the fear that one day she may have to face her brother again, this time with powers resulting from her behavior towards people.
** Izbrannika are typically people chosen from the Real World by the King and Queen to become their supernatural soldiers. They fight off demons that the King and Queen of the Dead World may create with their soldiers, and they also keep the balance between life and death. They can both cause and prevent deaths from happening, depending on what the dimensions call for. More info comes at a much much later time. c:Weapon of choice:
Aside from being able to manipulate the "heart's desires," Amelia wields her shadow much like the rest of the Aces. Her shadow allows her to handle blades and occasionally chainlike weapons. Her favorites are clawlike extensions of her nails and a rather intricately designed scythe. If she's too lazy to summon, she'll just fight in hand-to-hand combat.
The chain on the scythe is removable/optional, depending on the situation. The chain can also vary in length.Other members of her unit:
