Born on September fifth, nineteen ninety-Three to Mikael and Jessica West. As a child, Amaya had a very happy, normal childhood. Her parents had kept her in the dark about their work since day one, not wanting their baby girl to be exposed to the things that went bump in the night. It wasn't until she was eighteen that she would learn first hand what her parents had fought so hard to protect her from. After Amaya had gone to bed that night, her parents remained up. They talked for hours as they usually did, having not suspected that their line of work would soon come back to haunt them. At about One Thirty A.M. a bird flew into the sliding glass door of their home, startling the couple. Mikael went to check on the noise, finding the supposedly injured bird struggling on the porch. Makael went out to check on the bird, but before he could touch it, it flew off into a nearby tree. At first, what came next seemed innocent enough, the small group of four stumbled from the woods behind the house, begging Mikael for assistance as one of their own was visibly and badly hurt. Suspicious but unwilling to turn away a cry for help, he invited them inside in order to provide what assistance they could. The struggle that followed as the four attacked awoke the sleeping girl.
She would come downstairs to find a living nightmare. The young woman found her mother dead on the floor, her father barely clinging to life as a vampire drained him of life. He told her to run and she did, making it halfway up the stairs before one of the females that had killed her parents caught up to her. In a panic, Amaya bit the woman and drew blood thus beginning the young woman's new life as a day walker though she would not learn that until much later. The Private Security Officer that saved the little girl that night took her under his wing and adopted her, when he had first arrived on the scene, he thought her dead however he would quickly be proved wrong when she seemed to wake up just before they were going to take her to the morgue. She begged for something to drink. The man offered his own blood to complete the change and would go on to adopt her. He had been a close friend of the family for a very long time as well as Mikael and Jessica's boss. He raised Amaya as his own from that night on, teaching her how to defend herself against the creatures that had killed her parents as well as the other creatures he taught her about. After high school, Amaya joined the army. During the six years she remained in the service of the United States Military, not only did she become an excellent combat soldier the young woman proved herself worthy with a sniper rifle as well. Though tours of duty were difficult for even human soldiers, Amaya managed to befriend a few of the medics, enabling her to feed from the blood bags they would slip to her. By the end of her six year Army career she had become a Sergeant, even having been allowed to take her most favored rifle, Sally with her after she retired.
At the age of twenty six, Amaya found out that her Adopted father, Darren had been diagnosed with cancer. The young woman worked harder than ever to seek out and destroy the monsters that had killed her family in hopes that she could make her Adopted father proud before his death, however fate would have other plans. During a nearly month long hunt in which it came to light that the vampires that the young woman had been looking for had moved to a city in Massachusetts. She headed there, not expecting to make any real connections until she met her current boyfriend, Xander who would play a major role in keeping her stable after receiving news from her father's company that the man had passed, leaving her The Association. She remained in Massachusetts, searching Crawford city and the surrounding towns for the beings that had made her what she was and killed her family in the process. During this time, she set up an office for the Association in Crawford city so that she could continue to run the company as well as continuing her search.
