Amber, Alexandria, and Zach were born in the palace, and have lived there all their lives. Their mother is Queen Jean Grey, and either Alexandria or Amber will be the next monarch, as Zach is not eligible due to his lack of magic.
From what the trio found as they grew, they later figured that they were of high important, and Zach found out the hard way that he was not exactly his mother's favourite child. Amber and Alexandria don't really get along due to their "battle" for the throne, as their mother remains undecided on which should succeed her.
Amber proved herself capable of magic at a young age, just before her younger sister Alexandria. As it was confirmed that Zach had no magic, people say that Amber threw him a dirty look, as if she had the authority to disown him from the family tree.
She was homeschooled in both normal and magical subjects. She didn't ant to go to school because of the boys who would swarm over her. However, she later fell in love with Dimitri, a young man of their kingdom. He also had sorcery in him- and was of royal blood- distantly connected with the family, so he met both of Jean's criteria for Amber's hand.
Amber saw Alexandria talking to a young boy- obviously a normal boy- and apparently seemed to be comfortable around him. She tried her best to spoil it due to her resentment for her sister. It worked, too- although this was not her first display of sorcery.
She spent most of her time in her wing of the castle, which was the biggest of the three siblings'. She would often swim, as although she was different, this was a habit that dated back to when she was young. She has a lot of things in her wing, and because of this, she uses this as entertainment when not practicing.
She still resents her sister and has a small degree of dislike for her brother.
