International Flavors

Amelia was lured to Yamapalu by Governor Nomi Huapai with a new fruit that tasted like chicken once cooked. She was held captive in Fort Yamapalu and forced to write about the product as the Governor attempted to increase his power due to the poultry prohibition. She was freed by Tony Chu and began a romantic relationship with him. While escaping the island, Amelia snuck a Gallsaberry fruit seed back with her.[2]

Just Desserts

Amelia ran with Tony on various missions to bring down illegal diner's clubs and used her reporter skills to give him clues on suspects. Unknown to her, a coworker and ex-boyfriend began following her around to get information from her.[3]

Major League Chew

Upon realizing that Tony has gone missing, she begins investigating. His new boss, Marshall Mellow, reported that his old boss had warned him that Tony does this every now and then. Having been on Yamapalu, Amelia knew he'd have a reason for having gone missing. When Dan Franks mentioned an odd statement, Amelia picked up on it and knew to follow him. Finding out that Dan Franks was using Tony's Cibopathic powers to research his book, she searched for a way to free him. When she distracted Franks, Tony was able to break free with new skills he had learned and knocked Dan out to save them both.[4]

While Tony was in the hospital from his injuries, Amelia spent most of her time looking after him and his visitors. She became closer with Olive at this time and also discovered a recipe book that Toni left behind for her to find.

Family Recipes

She cooked the hallucinogenic Chogs and Gallsaberry recipe Toni left her to pick up Tony's spirits.[6] When Tony consumed it, he had a vision where Toni explained to him that the world would soon end.[7]

He admitted that since the world was ending soon, he could finally accept being happy. Amelia asked him what would make him happy and the next thing the two knew, they were married and spending the night in the honeymoon suite. They were soon interrupted by a man telling them it was a matter of national emergency. Tony convinced Amelia to come with as it would be a good story for her. Amelia called into Herb Urlacher the story and had it printed how Tony stopped the Vampire once again.[8] However, the tables soon turned when the FDA moved in early on the Collector and he put many of them in the hospital.[9]

However next door, Mason pretended to be asleep until the moment was right.

Olive sent a warning to the Collector that they were coming for him.[11] However, they were soon stopped by Tony, who argued they would die if they moved forward with their plan. They returned to Tony's apartment where he came to the conclusion at the same time as John Colby that he would need to eat Poyo in order to take down the Collector.[12] Tony ate the bird, and took down the Collector at his base in Siberia thank to the knowledge Olive, Mason and Amelia had gathered while taking down his minions.[13]
