Background

When Amity was little, she and Willow became friends. However, her parents Alador and Odalia Blight orders Amity to break her friendship with Willow and recommends her to hang out with suitable friends or else they will expel Willow from Hexside. Because of this Amity breaks her friendship with Willow even go as far as to lie to her of being weak thus send Willow crying. For many years she obeys her parents' wishes at the cost of being lonely and sad.

Amity is described as bright and competitive. She attends magic school of Hexside and is part of the Abomination Track. As the "Top Student" at Hexside, Amity is proud of her status as the best student in the entire school and goes as far as to use it as a bragging right. She looks down on other students who are not as successful as she is such as Willow and teases them. She does not take kindly to those who steal her spotlight nor let someone better than her to hinder her future. Her reasons for being the way she is is because she wants to someday become a member of the Emperor's Coven, who only handpick the best of the best. Although she appears standoffish, Amity has a sense of honor and integrity This shows that for all her flaws, Amity wants to succeed based on her own effort and merit, and not rely on cheating or deception to do so.

When Luz Noceda came to the Boiling Isles Amity's life changes. At first, she is extremely hostile to the point she tries to have Luz killed to expose her posing as Willow's abomination project for inadvertently taking her top student badge. She also blames Luz for getting her in trouble and ignores the fact of her assistance on the attempt in Luz's life. Later, after being mean to Luz and King despite Luz's attempts to make up, she and Luz with their mentors Lilith and Eda respectively engaged in a Witch's Duel and should Amity defeat Luz she will give up learning magic forever via an everlasting oath. It comes to the point where both Eda and Lilith cheated on both of their pupils using booby traps and magic boosts on Luz and Amity respectively without their prior knowledge. Feeling embarrassed Amity runs off and lashes out at Luz blaming her for humiliating her and states how much pressure she puts on herself, even going far as to demand Luz say she isn't a witch to gain some sense of superiority. But Amity called off the forever-oath she cast on Luz after her meaningful reasoning and discovery that humans like her can do magic via another means to allow her to continue her training to become a witch.

One day at the library Luz tries to befriend Amity to make up, only to be given a bitter, harsh and annoyed response from her and told to leave, falsely believing that whenever Luz is around it gets her in trouble. It's also shown that Amity was perplexed be Luz's friendly attitude and is trying to understand her. When Amity catches her with her diary accompanied by her siblings, she hypocritically calls Luz a bully, but later takes back that accusation when she sees that Luz really does care about her and realizes her own hurtful attitude was making things worse and decides to reflect on it.

She does have a sensitive side when her reputation is compromised, and her need for success and tendency to look down on others suggests she has a superiority complex. In addition to enjoying reading to children at the library, she is accepting of Luz for being finally admitted it to Hexside (after Luz proving her worth to Amity in many episodes) and still cherished her friendship with Willow deep inside, despite being forced to sever it long ago for the sake of protecting the latter's future as a student of Hexside from her parents. She also feels bad for how she treats others but keeps this softer side concealed so as to not demonstrate "weakness."

After a mishap of burning Willow's photos causing her to lose her memories. She and Luz with the help of Eda to go to Willow's mind and fix her memories and tell Willow the truth of why they broke their friendship and promises to be a better friend. Although it takes time for Willow and Amity's friendship to be rekindled. She indeed keeps her promise as she tells Boscha off in front of her peers to prevent her from bullying Willow.
