Born in Fire
Mary's friend and sometimes-lover
Amanda was born in Seattle, Washington, and majored in Japanese in college. The job opportunity that drew her to Georgia fell through, so now she acts as a translator for several companies. In her spare time, she participates in political activism and awareness-raising marches.
Amanda has been Mary’s roommate since Mary’s relationship with Troy ended. She and Mary go through phases where they sleep together, but they are primarily friends, and both prefer to avoid excess drama.
