Personal history

Having unintentionally killed her father, the king of Carlo Rossi, in an emotional fit involving an outburst of magical energy, Amelia fled her kingdom and began life on the run. She stumbled upon the Wicked Reckoning during a drunken bender on Serengeti and, believing it to be a cruise ship, joined its ranks in a binding contract. After realizing her mistake, she rolled with the punches and came to terms with her new predicament, quickly adapting to life on the open seas. When her true identity threatened to be revealed, she fled the ship, fearing that her allies were turn her in for the bounty offered up by her kingdom. Instead, they chased after her, making it clear that the crew stood with her for as long as she called the ship home.   After a tense confrontation with a wicked undine, Amelia was killed in battle. Seeking to ressurrect her, the party sought out help from a powerful, but dangerous being - Amelia's true mother, the sea hag Myrtle. After making a deal, Amelia was brought back to life with a newfound fear of death and obsession with gaining immortality at nearly any cost.   Eventually, she and the crew made their way back to Carlo Rossi to free an old friend who took the fall for the crime she committed. After discovering it was a trap, Amelia and the rest of the crew fought against her perceived enemies, revealing her hand in the king's murder in the ensuing battle. When the kingdom's temporary rulers (and the late king's advisors) fell at her hand, the guards surrendered out of loyalty to the kingdom. Choosing to wash her hands of the ordeal, she sold her kingdom to Remaldi Dragonslayer and faked her death to earn her freedom from Carlo Rossi once and for all.
