How did you find us?:
Nickname: None that she's aware of?
Hometown: Spring Creek, Nevada
Equipment: Amy's never been terribly concerned with looking "fashionable". Before the world went to hell, her style could be best described as business casual. Now, nothing much has changed, though she considers herself very fortunate when she's able to wear clean clothing, regardless of what it is.
Typically, she wears her hair up in a ponytail or a bun to keep it out of her face. It's just easier that way.
History: Amy Simpson was born into a family that was already pretty full. After two boys, her parents were ecstatic to meet the newest addition. Her mother was particularly pleased, because she'd finally have a little princess to spoil.
Amy had other ideas.
From the start, she was content to follow her brothers around. She idolized the older boys, and in turn, they doted on their baby sister. Growing up with older brothers affected her, and her time was spent running around and getting into trouble with them, rather than playing with dolls and having tea parties with her mother.
The one concession she made was learning to cook. There was just something amazing, and even a little magical, about taking a bunch of unrelated things and combining them to make something amazing.
Her weekends and summers were spent outside, more often than not. There was always something going on, and Amy was just glad to be a part of it all. Her father had always been the outdoorsy type and when the boys went camping, Amy always tagged along. And while she was more than happy to play various sports with the boys, her interest never quite went past a casual level.
She met Eric the summer before they started middle school. That is to say, she finally took notice of his existence. He'd always been there, but she'd somehow overlooked him up until that point. As a rule, she'd never really been that concerned with dating. Between school, and running around with her brothers and her friends, it just wasn't a concern.
She always took school seriously, and maintained an A - B average all the way up through high school. If you asked her, she couldn't tell you the exact moment when she realized she'd fallen in love with Eric. It was just one of those things that she knew she shouldn't question, because there was no point. Then again, their relationship had never been typical. What had started out as an awkward sort of friendship had gradually evolved into something else. It had been so natural that she hadn't even bothered to second-guess it.
After graduation (2014), she took a year off to relax and enjoy her freedom, as it were, before even thinking about college. When she did return to the world of academia, it was to enter CSN's (College of Southern Nevada's) culinary and pastry arts program. Eric was always supportive and loving, even when their schedules conflicted, and they always found a way to make things work despite sometimes being too busy to spend any actual time together.
Fast forward five years; Amy is working part-time in a diner owned by friends of the family, as well as scoping out other, more promising, opportunities. Somewhere along the line, Eric had landed in prison after one of his "deals" had gone south. She would have been more than happy to visit him, except for the fact that he refused to see her after the first time. When he finally got out, she confronted him about it. It took virtually no time for their little chat to dissolve into a shouting match, and then things got physical. When they awoke the next morning, things had seemed better. Talk of marriage was inevitable, and they ended up eloping, though they intended to have a "proper" ceremony later for friends and family.
When the virus hit, her world was flipped on its head. Her father (Jason) and youngest brother (Matthew) were the first to fall. In the ensuing chaos, she lost track of her mother (Lisa) and her other brother (Tim). As the world went to shit all around them, Amy and Eric decided to get the hell out of dodge.
They'd heard rumors of a safe place up in Canada, and it seemed like the best bet, so they packed up Eric's car and hit the road.
Skills/Flaws: Survival lvl 2 - summers and weekends spent camping, and doing other outdoorsy things with her father and brothers have given her a fair bit of knowledge in the subject.
Cooking lvl 2 - the one concession she made to follow in her mother's footsteps. Her mother was an excellent cook, just as her mother before her, and Amy has soaked up as much of that knowledge as she could.
+Useless Trivia lvl 9,001 - she's always been a big reader, and has accumulated a fair bit of knowledge (both useful and not-so-much).
-She's not the most patient individual. But really, who in their right mind would enjoy sitting around waiting for things to happen?
-She's mildly allergic to walnuts. If exposed, she'll break out into hives. Prolonged exposure will lead to nasal congestion and watery eyes.
