Amity is skinny, with pale skin, chin-length hair with a ponytail pulling the front hair out of her face, and bright golden eyes. Like most witches, she has pointy ears. Amity's hair is two-toned, comprised of shades of aquamarine with brown hair—her natural hair color—visible at the roots. Near the end of "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", Amity decides to dye her hair lilac, with brown hair visible at her temples.
When attending school, Amity wears a gray tunic with a dark gray belt, cowl, and boots. As part of the Abomination track, her sleeves and leggings are a greyish-pink color. The rest of her attire includes wearing triangle-shaped black earrings and black nail polish. She has a star pin on her cowl, which shows that she is the Top Student. She wears dark grey, heeled boots, with a light grey top.
When not attending school, Amity dresses in a black short sleeve dress with orchid leggings and black point shoes with golden crescent moon buckles. Around her neck, she wears an amulet with an orchid gemstone.
Amity is described as bright and competitive. She attends magic school along with Willow, Gus, and (later) Luz, and is a part of the Abomination track. As the "Top Student" at Hexside, Amity is proud of her status as the best student in the entire school and goes as far as to use it as a bragging right. She looks down on other students who are not as successful as she is and teases them, as expressed greatly in her treatment of Willow in "I Was a Teenage Abomination". She does not take kindly to those who steal her spotlight and is somewhat the teacher's pet, seeing as how Principal Bump regards highly of her.
However, she does have a sensitive side when her reputation is compromised. Her reasons for being the way she is is because she wants to someday become a member of the Emperor's Coven, who only handpick the best of the best. In addition to enjoying reading to children at the Bonesborough Library as shown in "Lost in Language", further proof of Amity being kinder than she lets on are her accepting of Luz for being finally admitted it to Hexside and still cherished her friendship with Willow deep inside, despite being forced to sever it long ago for the sake of protecting the latter's future as a student of Hexside from her parents in "The First Day" and "Understanding Willow" respectively. The latter episode showed not only the extent of her selflessness but also the desire to make amends with her former best friend and disagreement with her parents' disdain towards the weak. She keeps this softer side concealed so as to not demonstrate weakness.
Although she appears standoffish, Amity has a sense of honor and integrity, as she was shocked and embarrassed that her mentor, Lilith Clawthorne, made her cheat with a magic boost in her duel with Luz without Amity's knowledge and, since Eda did the same for Luz, who apologized to Amity. Amity called off the forever-oath she cast on Luz to allow her to continue her training to become a witch. This shows that for all her flaws, Amity wants to succeed based on her own effort and merit, and not rely on cheating or deception to do so.

Amity Blight was born the third child to Alador and Odalia Blight. As a member of the prestigious Blight family, her parents had high expectations of her, with Odalia wishing her to join the Emperor's Coven after graduating high school. Her life at home was far from ideal due to her father's neglectfulness, her mother's controlling parenting, and her elder siblings' pranks. Amity and Willow Park had a very close friendship as children, spending a lot of time together, something that did not please her parents as they considered Willow to be of a lower class than the family. When Amity invited Willow to her birthday party, her parents exploded and threatened Amity that if she didn't stop associating with Willow, they would make sure that Willow would never be able to attend Hexside. For Willow's good, Amity had no choice but to end their friendship and by demand of her parents "befriend" Boscha and Skara..
As a teenager, Amity enrolled in Hexside's Abomination class, which promised great opportunities for the future, and become one of the most popular and intelligent students there. At some point, she was the captain of the Banshees but later stopped playing it after she caused an accident in which her teammates end up injured. Everything she excelled at was the result of hard work and dedication, but in the process, she became incredibly competitive and acted more like a mean-spirited bully.
One morning before a class where abominations would be evaluated, Amity appears to Willow bragging that she is the top student before heading off to class. To her horror, Willow manages to earn the top student star because her "abomination" stood out from the rest. She suspects her former friend's "abomination", and her suspicions are proven when she catches the "abomination" consuming a snack, but her disruptive behavior causes Professor Hermonculus to send her to Principal Bump's office. Amity reports his findings to the director, which prompts Bump to perform a dissection of Willow's abomination. When it is revealed that is not actually an Abomination and is instead a human girl named Luz, both Bump and Amity work to prevent Willow and the human from escaping, but fail. After the incident, Amity was not very fond of Luz, believing that the human gives witches in training a bad name.
Finding Luz at the annual witch convention annoyed Amity a lot, and out of spite, steps on King's cupcake, causing Luz to challenge her to a witch duel, where if Luz wins, Amity would have to admit that humans can be witches, but if Amity wins, Luz would have to admit that she is not a witch and can no longer pursue her dream of being one; Amity gladly accepts the challenge. With the help of her mentor, Lilith Clawthorne, Amity becomes skilled enough to defeat Luz, but the various traps set by Luz's mentor and Lilith's sister, Eda Clawthorne, mislead her. Although Luz and Eda are exposed for cheating, Amity realizes thanks to Eda that Lilith also cheated, humiliating her. Luz tries to apologize to Amity, but she demands that she admit that she is not a witch, to which Luz admits that she is not one yet and that she is training and trying hard enough to be one, showing Amity her spell of light, and although she despises it at first, Amity admits that she has never seen anyone cast a spell like that. The two come to an understanding, and Amity releases Luz from the eternal oath.
Amity and Luz have a complicated relationship that progresses over the series. Amity originally encounters Luz when she poses as Willow's abomination, stealing her "top student" title. Suspicious of Luz, Amity attempts to expose her to the point of convincing Principal Bump to dissect her. Since then, the two were almost always at odds due to Amity's snobbish behavior, despite Luz's attempts to make amends. Like many witches, Amity underestimates humans, believing they are incapable of performing magic until Luz shows her an alternative method of spell casting. It is shown in "Lost in Language" that Amity had been trying to figure Luz out, whether she was a poser, a nerd, or at worst, a bully. After Luz apologizes for reading her diary and lets her borrow her fifth Azura book, Amity seems to acknowledge her attitude towards Luz beforehand and at least promises to think on her behavior. In "Adventures in the Elements", she and Luz become good friends as they team together to save Eda and the twins from the Slitherbeast, however, she sternly scolds Luz for causing the situation and traps her in a pink cage so she doesn't get hurt. She is shocked when she later escapes, but together, they deal with the Slitherbeast and free Eda, Edric, and Emira. Amity is happy that she and Luz might be going to Hexside together after all, and blushes when Luz brings up the prospect of a book club, asking for it to be a secret.
In "The First Day", Amity has found a fondness for Luz ,as she was the first to welcome her on her first day of attending Hexside. She even gave Luz a high five, showing she's opened up to her. Later, she questions if things will be the same now that they attend the same school together.
In the episode "Understanding Willow", a more irrational side of Amity is shown as she tries to cover up the fact that she and Willow were ever friends, but accidentally ends up almost erasing all of Willow's memories. With Luz's help, Amity corrects her mistake and is able to start being friends with Willow again, Throughout the ordeal, Luz affirms that is helping her, and Amity greatly appreciates both the help and emotional support. Twice, Amity blushes when around Luz, the second time while being hugged, hinting that she had already started to develop a crush on her.
In "Enchanting Grom Fright", Amity expresses to Luz her anxiousness about being selected as Grom Queen, stating that whoever is selected has to defeat Grometheus the Fear Bringer, a monster sealed away beneath Hexside that feeds off of the fear of everyone in the Boiling Isles. Amity says that her worst fear is too embarrassing and doesn't want it to get out. Later, when Luz decides to take Amity's place as Grom Queen, Amity, along with Edric and Emira, helps train her to face Grom by having her face her fears beforehand. At the dance, Amity expresses her gratitude towards Luz taking her place, stating that she admires Luz's bravery, unlike herself, who wasn't brave enough to do what Luz was about to do. Later, when Grom (in the form of Luz's mother) corners Luz by a cliff, Amity steps in, apologizing to her for putting her in that situation. When Grom gets a hold of Amity, it transforms into a humanoid form and takes a piece of paper that she had with her, ripping it in half. Luz picks up one of the halves and sees that it is a note that Amity was going to use to ask someone to the dance, showing that Amity's greatest fear is being rejected. Luz then offers to go to the dance with her since they are friends. They then defeat Grom through a series of spells cast through a dance routine. Afterward, Luz asks Amity about the note, but Amity tells Luz that "it's not important" and throws the other half of the note. The half tossed aside shows that the note was meant for Luz, revealing that Amity has a crush on her.
In "Wing it Like Witches", Amity's feelings for Luz seem to have grown deeper since Grom, as she becomes very nervous and flustered. When Luz asks Amity if she wants to help her defeat Boscha at Grudgby, Amity panics, picturing Luz and her on the same team, and in cute uniforms sweating, causing her entire face to turn dark pink and for her to run off. Later, when Luz is willing to accept defeat to Boscha, Amity convinces Willow and Gus to back her up, admitting that she loves how stupid Luz can be and thinks that her reliance on her friends is sweet (though she attempts to go back on her admissions in embarrassment, to the suspicion of Willow and the confusion of Gus). Later, Amity joins and Luz and Willow in a Grudgby match against Boscha; she then openly dismisses the latter's opinion that she destroyed her social life and remarks that she has in fact made it better. During the game, Amity injures her leg, and gets incredibly flustered by Luz's offer to carry her, followed by her actually doing so; in the end, she visits the Owl House after getting medical attention and is welcomed by Luz, Willow, and Gus.
"In "Escaping Expulsion", it is shown that Amity keeps the picture of her, Luz, Willow, and Gus at Grom with her, showing how fond she has become of them, and she tears apart the Abomiton before it can step on the photo. The next day, Amity is shown to be less nervous around Luz compared to their previous interactions, but she is still seen blushing when she gives Luz a fairy pie she made as a gift to welcome her back after the petrification incident. She tries to speak out against Luz and her friends being expelled, but is forced to stand down by her mother. Later, Amity bumps into Luz outside of Hexside, apologizing for not speaking up against her parents. While Luz understands Amity's fear of her mom, she still asks her to take her to Odalia so that they can work out a deal to get back into Hexside. However, Amity doesn't have the courage to stand up to her mother, and leaves Luz alone. When Amity returns home and realizes that Odalia is making Luz help out with the demonstration of Blight Industries' new abomination products, she immediately asks Willow and Gus for help and they go to the demonstration to save Luz. When Amity sees Luz going up against the Abomaton 2.0, she hurries to her rescue. Just as the Abomaton is about to finish Luz off, Amity steps in to protect her, telling it to stay away from "my Luz." She holds down the Abomaton, ignoring her mother's orders, crushing her necklace with her hand. After asking Luz if she's okay, Amity finally stands up to her parents, telling them how much Luz, Willow, and Gus mean to her. Luz and Amity then team up back to back, momentarily blushing at being so close to each other. Amity then threatens to tear the Abomaton apart unless Odalia agrees to let her friends back into Hexside. Odalia reluctantly agrees, and Amity and Luz pretend to get knocked out when the Abomaton strikes them with a giant, hollow hammer, allowing the presentation to conclude.
In "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", when Luz goes to the library in order to do research on making a new portal to the Human Realm, Amity helps her get into the Forbidden Stacks in order to find Philip Wittebane's diary. Although Luz is hesitant to do so since it would be risking Amity's job at the library, Amity still insists on moving forward, especially after Luz brings up the idea of showing her around the Human Realm. Later, after the two of them get caught and Malphas fires Amity, she, visibly uspet, admits that everything has changed since Luz came to the Boiling Isles and that being around Luz makes her do stupid things and that she wishes that it didn't. When she sees that Luz is just as upset while admiting that she does stupid things around Amity as well, Amity heads back home. Later, when Luz arrives at Blight Manor to tell Amity that she got her job back, Amity is shown to be touched by the gesture and tells Luz—who was holding the Echo Mouse that ate the diary—that she always has a way of sneaking into people's hearts. She then gives Luz a kiss on the cheek before pulling back, realizing what she just did. While Luz looks stunned, Amity becomes flustered and bids Luz farewell before going back inside, repeatedly asking herself why she just did that.
In "Hunting Palisman", it is revealed that Amity had stayed home from school in order to avoid Luz.
In "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door", Luz finds Amity in the basement of the Owl House after being kidnapped by Hooty. Amity, not wanting to risk her friendship with Luz, asks if they can forget about the Kiss at Blight Manor. Upon finding themselves in the Tunnel of Love that Hooty had set up for them, Amity believes that Luz did it for her and starts blushing. However, when Luz starts destroying the tunnel out of embarrassment, Amity becomes upset, believing that it meant that Luz wasn't interested in her. Afterwards, when Luz admits that the whole thing was stupid, Amity sadly believes that she meant that the idea of them dating was stupid. Later, when Eda and King manage to get an upset Hooty away long enough for the two of them to be alone, Luz tells Amity that she had been wanting the perfect situation to ask Amity something and that Amity would be too cool for the Tunnel of Love. Amity, realizing that it wasn't Luz trying to reject her, admits that she's not as cool as Luz thinks. Luz then tells Amity that even though her life is hectic at the moment, and she doesn't know what the future might hold, she thinks it'll be cool if Amity was part of her future. Luz then builds up the courage to say the next thing, but Amity gets too excited and asks her out first. Luz is slightly disappointed that she built up the courage for nothing, prompting Amity to awkwardly allow her to speak. Luz then asks her out, which Amity happily accepts. Unsure what to do then, they hold hands, and comment on how scary the situation still feels.
In "Eclipse Lake", Amity tries to prove that she's an "awesome girlfriend" by taking care of Luz after she becomes sick with the Common Mold. She is especially worried since, while the illness is normally harmless, they have no idea how it will affect a human like Luz. When Eda and King set off for Eclipse Lake in order to obtain Titan's Blood for the portal, Amity immediately volunteers to go as well, still wanting to prove herself to Luz. Later, after Amity, Eda, and King capture the Golden Guard, Amity becomes protective after Hunter starts to make a threat about what would happen if he ever sees Luz again. Later, when Luz sends messages to Amity on a game device that consist of a series of symbols, Amity becomes worried when Hunter interprets the messages to mean that if Amity returned without the Titan's Blood, then she and Luz were through. When Amity rebutes this by saying that she's an "awesome girlfriend", she becomes even more worried when Hunter asks if Luz herself has actually said that. Later, when King turns the game device on its side to show that Luz was using the symbols as letters, the messages show how much Luz cares about Amity and her concern regarding Amity's safety on the mission, much to Amity's relief. Afterwards, when Amity and Hunter are fighting over the portal key, Amity regretfully hands the key over—but not before breaking it so that she would catch some Titan's Blood on her glove—after Hunter threatens to go after it later since the Emperor's Coven knows where the Owl House is, which would likely put Luz in danger. Later, when Amity, Eda, and King return to the Owl House, Amity is immediately greeted by Luz, who is relieved that her "awesome girlfriend" is okay, with Amity sharing the same sentiment.
In "Follies at the Coven Day Parade", it is revealed that Amity had been using a Spanish cook book that she had gotten from Gus to try and learn Spanish for Luz, even referring to Luz as her "batata", which is Spanish for "sweet potato". However, she becomes suspicious when Luz avoids her, Willow, and Gus' questions about the attempt to make a portal to the Human Realm, as well as when she sees that there's a video on Luz's phone after Luz leaves it at school. However, when explaining the situation to Willow, she mentions that while she could watch the video to get answers, she doesn't want to invade Luz's privacy. Later, when Luz pretends to kidnap Kikimora during the parade, Amity recognizes Luz's plan right away from book five of the Good Witch Azura series, and rescues them from Terra Snapdragon, not wanting Luz to be sent to the Conformatorium again. Once Kikimora double-crosses them later, Luz and Amity fight her off together, combing their magic for a series of combination attacks, until Terra interupts the fight. Afterwards, Amity calmly asks Luz about the video, saying that while she hadn't watched it, she was able to work out that Luz was able to make a portal and that the reunion with her mom didn't go well. Amity then tells Luz that while she's fine taking things one day at a time, she can't help if she doesn't know what's going on, and after some encouragement from Amity, Luz opens up to her about what happened. Later, after Belos gives his speech, Amity becomes worried and starts asking Luz about what's coming. Luz tells her that while she's not sure, they'll take it one day at a time.
Willow was formerly Amity's friend until Amity stopped hanging out with her when she received her witch powers before her. Due to this strained relationship, Amity would often mock Willow and leave her seething in anger. This relationship strained even further when Willow was revealed to have cheated in abomination class.
In "Understanding Willow", Amity accidentally erased some of Willow's memories when she tries to burn a picture of the day she severed her friendship with Willow. Eda then sends her and Luz into Willow's mind in order to repair the damage. Later, Inner Willow tries to destroy Amity for damaging the memories and for hurting Willow in the first place. She then shows Amity and Luz what happened the day Amity let her go as a friend, while also noting that she let her new friends pick on Willow after that. Amity then reveals that the reason she ended their friendship was that her parents made her do it in favor of those from affluent families. She was against the idea, stating that the other kids were mean, to which her parents threatened to ruin Willow's future by never allowing her into Hexside unless Amity broke their friendship herself. She tells Inner Willow that she was always good enough and that while she can't take back what she did, she would stop her other friends from picking on Willow. After this, Inner Willow allowed Amity and Luz to fix the rest of the memories, and Eda brings them back. Willow tells Amity that she remembers what Amity did that day as well as what she did to her memories. She says that while they still aren't friends, she is willing to try if Amity is too.
In "Wing it Like Witches", Amity stands up for Willow when Boscha starts picking on her at school. By the end of the episode, she all but renounces her former ties with Boscha and stands openly committed to her restored friendship with Willow, declaring that she "made [her social life] better". When Amity visits the Owl House after getting her injured leg bandaged, Willow greets her warmly with everybody else. Willow, along with Gus, later helps Amity rescue Luz in "Escaping Expulsion".
In "Follies at the Coven Day Parade", Amity decides to visit Willow in order to ask for advice. While there's initiallly some awkwardness shown between them, Amity opens up to her about how she thinks that Luz is keeping something from her about the portal, and how she's feeling conflicted between wanting to watch the video on Luz's phone in order to learn the truth and wanting to respect Luz's privacy. When Willow offers to give her advice in exchange for Amity braiding her hair, Amity expresses how glad she is that the two of them can actually start to be friends again.
Alador and Odalia Blight
As hinted in "Understanding Willow", Amity has a stormy relationship with her parents. The Blights consider themselves the most affluent family on the Boiling Isles and only associate with such, thus they resented their daughter's lack of disdain towards those without power and not sharing such a mentality to the point of blackmailing it onto her. During Amity's childhood, her parents forced Amity to cut ties with Willow because they didn't consider her to be a strong witchling, instead choosing friends from prestigious families for her. They even threatened to ruin Willow's chance to go to Hexside if Amity continued her friendship. By that attitude, they also expect her to be the top student, hang out with witchlings from influential families, and join the Emperor's Coven for the sake of their social standing and not for any benefit. The result of this emotional pressure caused Amity to retreat into herself, believing that she couldn't have a say in her own life if she wanted to please her parents.
Odalia seems to care about her to a degree since she makes lunches for Amity and has her siblings give them to her when she forgets. Even so, Amity's diary entry in "Lost in Language" where she unintentionally addressed one of her teachers as her mom once indicated that whatever affection she gave to her daughter was not enough, and that Amity wished her parents would love her for who she is instead of defining her by their social standing.
In "Escaping Expulsion" Amity's parents force her to take part in a demonstration of Blight Industries' latest abomination tech in order to make up for her grades slipping. It is also shown that Odalia uses oracle magic to communicate with Amity telepathically through the necklace worn around her neck, controlling her and threatening her to do good. The next day, when her parents force Principal Bump to expel Luz, Willow, and Gus from Hexside, Amity tries to speak out against it, but stands down when Odalia uses her necklace to threaten her, showing how much she fears her. Later, when Amity steps in to save Luz from the Abomaton 2.0, Odalia tries to use the necklace to get her to stop, but Amity crushes it in her hand, showing that she's done being intimidated by her mother. She then explains how much Luz, Willow, and Gus mean to her as friends and threatens to tear the Abomaton apart in front of the company's investors unless Odalia lets them back into Hexside.
Edric and Emira Blight
Edric and Emira are Amity's older siblings. Due to their contrasting personalities, Amity is often embarrassed, annoyed, or angered by her siblings' mischievous antics; she finds it unfair that her parents are less punishing on her siblings than herself, despite how hard she works to be proper and orderly. Amity would often lecture Emira and Edric and tell them to go away, even reporting them to the principal for being late to class.
After their attempt at pranking their younger sister nearly killed her, Edric and Emira started acting nice and protective towards Amity as seen in "Adventures in the Elements" while also playing harmless pranks on her. Amity appears to be unimpressed with their attempts at reconciliation, but she is shown to care about her siblings, who assist her in learning a new spell, and she rushes to save them from the Slitherbeast when it captures them. Edric and Emira praise her after she learns to create fire without a wand, albeit lightly teasing her in the process, much to her satisfaction and irritation.
In "Escaping Expulsion," Edric and Emira give cloaks to Amity, Gus, and Willow so they can sneak into the Blight Industries presentation in order to save Luz, even at risk of getting in trouble with their mother. While Amity is grateful that her siblings went out of their way to do this, she soon becomes annoyed when Edric puts stickers on their backs and throws them back at him.
In "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", the twins seem to be aware of Amity's crush on Luz, leaving the two alone together when they start blushing. Later, after Amity arrives back at Blight Manor, she confides in Emira, while Emira brushes her hair, about how confusing Luz's arrival has made everything, and how she is feeling and thinking things that she never has before. Emira questions why she is making it sound like a bad thing, as Amity wasn't happy before. Afterwards, when Emira helps dye Amity's hair lilac instead of the usual green, Edric comments that their mom will likely freak out, while Emira tells her that it looks fine, but also asks that Amity not mention that she helped her dye it. Shortly after, when Luz arrives at Blight Manor in order to tell Amity that she got her job at the library back, they can be seen watching the two of them, with Edric noting Amity's bold move of giving Luz a kiss on the cheek.
Gus and Amity used to be enemies, but after Willow patched things up with Amity, he doesn't consider her a rival anymore. There's not much interaction between the two, but as of "Wing it Like Witches", the two are now friends. Gus and Willow later help Amity rescue Luz in "Escaping Expulsion" and listens to her instructions while helping Luz in "Eclipse Lake".
In "Follies at the Coven Day Parade", it's revealed that Gus gave Amity a Spanish cook book so that she could try and learn Spanish for Luz.
Amity and Eda don't interact much, but Amity is well aware of how eccentric Eda can be, such as in "Adventures in the Elements", when Amity notes her methods of training Luz during their time at the Knee. However, she is also aware of how skilled Eda is as well, such as when she and her siblings allow Eda to demonstrate the sleeping spell on the Slitherbeast.
In "Understanding Willow", Eda is rather blunt when mentioning that messing with Willow's memories was irresponsible and a blatant disregard for Willow's safety, with Amity shown feeling guilty about the whole affair.
In "Enchanting Grom Fright", after Grom escapes and starts chasing after Luz, Amity and Eda share a look, knowing that they have to protect Luz no matter what.
In "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door", upon finding out the Luz wanted to ask Amity out, Eda helps by getting an upset Hooty away long enough for the two of them to talk, showing her support for their relationship.
In "Eclipse Lake", Amity is concerned when Eda doesn't take Luz getting sick with the Common Mold as seriously, with Eda getting annoyed at Amity's constant efforts to try and prove herself for Luz, referring to her as "Bossy Boots" or just "Boots". While searching for Eclipse Lake at the Knee, Amity seems to be indifferent to Eda and King's antics for the most part, but decides to take matters into her own hands while they are planning a overly elaborate distraction.
Lilith was Amity's teacher and mentor. Although she looks up to and obeys Lilith, their relationship is not that close, as they view each other as tools to obtain their own goals. When she found out that Lilith used her to cheat, Amity was shocked that she gave her an advantage in the duel against Luz without her knowledge, thus making it look like she cheated and put her future of being in the Emperor's Coven at risk. Due to this, Amity has lost her respect for Lilith.
Boscha is Amity's former "friend" that helped her bully Luz, Gus, and Willow.
In "Understanding Willow", it is revealed that Amity is only friends with Boscha because their parents are acquaintances, with a young Amity declaring she never liked Boscha from the start.
In "Wing It Like Witches," she decides to cut ties with Boscha and side with Luz and Willow. Because of this, Boscha believes she has gone soft. After Amity stands with Luz and Willow against her in a Grudgby game, Boscha tells her "[she's] just destroyed her social life." However, Amity rebuffs this, claiming instead that she's made it better, suggesting that she's decided she's better off with Luz and Willow and without Boscha.
Skara is another "friend" of Amity. Skara seems to be fond of Amity and is somewhat nicer than Boscha despite the feeling not being mutual. When Skara asked Amity about her history with Willow in "Understanding Willow", she threatened to end her friendship with both her and Boscha if they kept pressing the issue, suggesting she simply doesn't care about them. It is later revealed that, like Boscha, Skara is only friends with Amity because their parents work with each other, and Amity never really liked her from the beginning. While not explicitly shown, it could be assumed that she severed her relationship with Skara after cutting ties with Boscha, but both do not appear to be enemies.
The first time Amity met King during "Covention", she acted coldly towards him, likely because of her disdain towards Luz, who King was friends with. This is best shown when she purposefully steps on his cupcake, while playing it off as an accident. While they haven't had much interaction since then, it is possible that King had moved past it by the time Amity starts befriending Luz, as he doesn't show any signs of hostility towards her regarding the event.
In "Eclipse Lake", King notes the change in Amity's natire compared to her first meeting with Luz when she nearly had Principal Bump diesct Luz. During the journey to Eclipse Lake, he, like Eda, is shown to be annoyed by Amity's constant attempts to prove herself to Luz. Later, when Amity is shown worrying about the messages that Luz had been sending her that day, King turns the game device on its side to show Amity that the messages aren't as threatening as she and Hunter had made them out to be. Later, upon returning to the Owl House, King becomes jealous of Amity when Luz hugs her first, calling her a swindler and a thief.
Like most guests and residents of the Owl House, Amity finds Hooty annoying, going as far as threatening to destroy him if he ever talked to her again. Sure enough, Hooty disregarded the threat and Amity kept her word, beating him up badly enough to have him wear an eye patch. In "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door", after Hooty kidnaps Amity and brings her to the basement of the Owl House, Amity seems to be more confused about the situation than upset with Hooty himself, as well as flustered since it's her first interaction with Luz since the kiss at Blight Manor.
In "Eclipse Lake", they seem to be on better terms as Amity checks in on his progress on upgrading the house's defenses, while showing no signs of hostility towards him.
Amity initially held Hunter with great suspicion and animosity. She first meets Hunter when she, Eda, and King travel to the Knee to find the Titan's Blood at Eclipse Lake. Upon Eda pointing out that he's the Golden Guard, Amity notes how scrawny he is, much to Hunter's annoyance. Still, she has Hunter under tied up in abomination goo and unter constant surveillance while on their way to the lake, not trusting him, as well as acting hostile when Hunter starts to threaten to harm Luz the next time he sees her. When Hunter suggests that he and Amity split the Titan's Blood, Amity shoots down the idea, telling him that they aren't a team. Shortly after, when Amity gets some messages from Luz on her game device, Hunter interprets the messages to mean that if Amity didn't return with the blood, she and Luz were through. While Amity initial rebutes the interpretation by claiming to be an "awesome girlfriend", it starts to get to her when Hunter asks if Luz herself ever actualy said that, as well as when he points out that they both have a lot to prove for themselves and cannot afford to fail, because there is nothing worse than disappointing the people close to them.
Later, when Kikimora starts to catch up to them, Hunter pleads with Amity to let him go so that he doesn't get caught. Amity reluctantly does so, but is then tripped up by Hunter, who then goes after the Titan's Blood for himself. Later, when Amity and King find Hunter at Eclipse Lake in a state of despair due to the lake being dried up, Amity tells him that he was right about them having so much in common. She grew up thinking everything was an opportunity to justify existing. But now, she has seen there are people out there who will not make oneself feel worthless, and all he has to do is let himself meet them. However, when Hunter sees the portal key around Amity's neck, he immediately tries to attack her in order to get the key, which has Titan's Blood inside of it. After an intense fight, they come to a standstill, with Hunter telling Amity that even if she escapes with the key, the Emperor's Coven still knows where to find her and Luz. Realizing that this would put Luz in danger, Amity reluctantly hands the key over to Hunter, asking that he stay away from Luz. But not before breaking the key so that she could catch some of the blood inside. Satisfied, Hunter leaves with the key, thanking Amity for cooperating.

Behind the scenes
Name and basis
The name Amity has its roots in Latin, meaning "friendship", which could represent her budding relationship with Luz, and Willow before her. Her surname, Blight, on the other hand, is a disease or fungi that cause it in plants, which most likely relates to the formerly troubled relationship between Amity and Willow. It could also refer to her complicated relationship with her parents.
Amity is voiced by Mae Whitman.
Amity debuted in the episode, "I Was a Teenage Abomination".
