Biography

Amanda was born on the road, once a refugee before coming to the City. Her people were scavengers, and her childhood was spent fixing up vechicles that helped her family survive.[1] Her mother carried a weapon named The Chaperone, a finely decrorated double barreled shotgun that helped shepherd Amanda to the City. Her mother died on the road, and her shotgun was buried with her.[2] A young Amanda stood in the Tower with the Commander Zavala, watching a ship flying in the sky with wonder.[3] Her love of flight, and a knack for working with Golden Age tech, allowed her to become the Tower's Shipwright when she grew up.[4]

Amanda was responsible for outfitting Eris Morn's ship with stealth technology, at the behest of Cayde-6. When she asked Cayde the purpose of the flight for the log, and not believing his lies, he told her the truth about his plan to use in for an unsanctioned mission to board the Dreadnaught. Amanda chose to log it as a "test flight".[5] Later, Amanda took part in a contest, held by Tex Mechanica, to recreate her mother's shotgun, in which she helped recreate and upgrade.[6] She also helped bring the Sparrow Racing League to the mainstream, acting as host for the races, and assisting Guardians in obtaining Licenses.[7]
