Ameryl was the Right Arm of The Imperium, twin sister to Imeryn, Imeryn being one of the God-Monarchs, and former lover of Highemperor, who was the ruler of the High Empire. She was originally the co-ruler of the Hypericum people before Imeryn ousted her and became sole ruler of the empire. Ameryl was exiled and in her exile Ameryl discovered the Philosophy of Nothing, changing who she was. She was introduced to The Imperium before she would eventually join its political ranks. Thanks to her possession of anti-power, she was able to rise quickly to power and eventually came to be an Arm of The Imperium where she was one of the three primary rulers of the Multiversal empire. She was forever haunted by her past, however. Both the love and sense of betrayal she harboured from both her sister and former lover, Highemperor. She came to both love and hate them. She is a woman of complex emotions and is eternally trying to figure out who she is. Though she is highly skilled in magic, her knowledge of anti-power is unmatched by anyone and has given her a great boon against her foes and led to the creation of the God-Killer. Aside from Highemperor and her sister, Ameryl also loves Peysiant Guril, has a deep friendship with Reimi Soulstar and a respect for Orien Aspurr who, as a gaje for Nothing, taught her much about who she is.
Ameryl is considered to be exceptionally beautiful (albeit by the narcissistic Imeryn) and always wears gowns[Pan 1]. She and Imeryn are identical twins, sharing the exact same facial features, but while Imeryn's hair is more purple, Ameryl's was more pink[Pan 2]. Sometime after her exile, however, Ameryl wanted to move on and become a new woman so she changed the colour of her long hair from pink to white using magic, mimicking the milk she was bathing in. As pink was still her favourite colour[Tales 1] she would often continue to wear pink dresses despite changing her hair colour[Tales 2]. When she became Left Arm of The Imperium, however, she started to wear a dress of bright yellow and black that was made of a leather-like material[CatH 1][Tales 3].
Ameryl was always pleasant and calm and filled with an obligation to kindness, the exact juxtaposition to her sister Imeryn[Pan 1]. Having met Highemperor as a child and perceived him to be an imaginary friend, when she then met him as an adult she was deeply affected - as though she had known the man her whole life (but hadn't) and was deeply in love with him, as well as her sister[Pan 3]. She was also moved by the overtures of Peysiant Guril and had intended to marry her, even share her love with Imeryn, but the arrival of Peysiant Guril exposed the rift between the sisters. Imeryn's lust for power and dominance versus Ameryl's obliging, sharing nature[Pan 1]. She abhors her sister's actions, especially the act of Powerplaying that she learnt from Highemperor, but wishes she had never opposed Imeryn to begin with, thinking it would have been easier to simply give in[Pan 4]. After her defeat, Ameryl wanted to change her life and forget her past by becoming a new woman, capable and independent[Tales 4]. That meant overcoming her love for her sister and Highemperor, leading her to abort the child she was pregnant with. Unfortunately she was never able to truly discard that love and she found that she would forever love Highemperor while simultaneously hating him[Pan 5]. Her quest to find who she truly is eventually led her to the Philosophy of Nothing and she came to believe that Nothing was all that awaited them upon death and while she believed that nothing was important as a result of that, she also believed that this existence is all that matters[Tales 5]. While she never lost her sense of kindness to others, her warped sense of morality would allow her to justify the deaths of millions for the sake of weapons testing. Yet rescue a stranger from death in the same instant[CatH 2].

The Story of Ameryl
Main article: The Story of Ameryl
Shortly after being exiled from Hypericum by her twin sister, Imeryn(citation needed), Ameryl and her entourage arrived on the planet Oeurwoud. As a popular tourist destination, they abode in Aggran Forest where Ameryl experienced a new lease of life away from the prying eyes of the court. She came to the conclusion that her aide, Harold Haroldson, was spying on her for her sister and she dismissed him. After that she then dismissed her entire retinue and became independent. She sold all of her possessions and went on a journey to find truth. Then she arrived in New Sima and travelled to its sister-city El'Psassment where she fell upon the El'Psassment Wat[Tales 4].
Shades of an Empire
Main article: Shades of an Empire
Ameryl was met aboard The Lamb, Ameryl's personal flagship, by High Legatifex Astrid and Kleo the Summermaid as representatives of the High Empire. Astrid was tasked with hunting down the rebel known as Indigo Shade, who had been reported within Imperium space. Kleo turned out to be a fellow hypericumite and one that believed Ameryl should be considered the true queen of Hypericum after Imeryn sacrificed all of the people within the nation but Ameryl couldn't see herself as any better. Astrid and Ameryl flirted with each other, which was just an extension of the political banter going on between them and, to Ameryl, a game. She agreed to allow the High Empire to pass through Imperium territory but she would escort them from her ship[Tales 3].
