Early LifeEdit

Amy starts as a twelve-year-old who is a little spoiled. She is with her sisters and is pretty much the only one who does not wholeheartedly agree to the sisters' choice to give their mother Marmee gifts to ensure their gratitude to her. She later overcomes that greediness and gives her a better gift. After a few chapters, she comes into as much mischief as Jo, like getting struck by her teacher for bringing pickled limes to school, burning all of Jo's beautiful stories for her father to read when he got back from the Civil War because of jealousy, and because of that, accidentally falls into a crack in the ice. When Beth gets Scarlet fever, Amy is forced to stay with Aunt March and is bribed by Laurie that she would be able to watch theatre whenever she likes. She is chosen by Aunt March to accompany her to Europe, much to Jo's dismay. 

Later life Edit

Amy is now a very dignified lady and is the only one who actually wants to marry a rich man so she won’t have a hard time in terms of finance but at the last-minute turns him, Vaughn, down and marries Laurie instead. It is said she called him 'My Lord'. She is very happy and gives birth to Bess Laurence, named after her late sister and is absent during the later books due to doing some painting in France. 


Amy starts as a little lady who sometimes acts a little vain and spoiled due to being the youngest. Out of all the sisters, she is most probably the opposite of Jo. Though her morals improved throughout the books, she is still thought to be spoiled. If you look closer, you will see that Amy is actually the most practical when it comes to romance in that time, for she understood marrying a rich man is very practical and will grant a life of stability, in contrast to Meg. She later decides that she will not be happy doing that and marries Laurie instead. Amy is rather artistic, creative, and is actually very intelligent if you look at her vocabulary even if she messes it up a lot. In the end, she becomes an extremely caring and self-effacing character. Even at the beginning, with her selfish demeanor, she reprimands herself for it and truly wants to change.  

Appearance   Edit

Amy is a pale and slender female has blue eyes, curly yellow hair - she is the only sister to have curly blonde hair. And as she grew older into a very pretty 16 year old young lady, she became the flower of the family. And when she matured into adulthood she became the most graceful and best-dressed in town, as well as a very lovely, elegant and beautiful young woman.


  • Amy is based on the youngest Alcott sister, May, who ironically nicknamed herself after her mother's maiden name.
