Fallcoast has been Amalia's home since the age of three when her mother and four older brothers had moved from New Jersey. Growing up was difficult as the family was always struggling to keep food on the table and the rent paid just enough to keep from being evicted. Her brothers began part time jobs to help out once they had reached of age and Amalia was soon following them, working as a maid at a hotel while in high school. She rarely got into trouble, mostly petty things such as missing curfew or lying about being somewhere she wasn't. Too stay on track Amalia was dragged to church every sunday and was expected to be home to help make dinner every night. She was a being groomed to be a house wife. A life Amalia didn't want.
Perhaps Amalia joined the Fallcoast PD out of spite to rebel against everything her mother had planned for her.
