Now you see me, now you're dead! Again.
— Amy

Amy is one of the six slayers featured in Dead Island 2. She is a Paralympian who became trapped in Los Angeles, California during the outbreak. She wants to escape Los Angeles to participate in the National trials for the paralympic team, which was supposed to take place a week after the start of the game.


Amy is a quick-witted Paralympian who has found something even better than her runner’s high: zombie-slaying! The risks keep her wired, the success keeps her pumped, and every battle is almost a puzzle to solve on the fly – like an obstacle course to keep her mind sharp. Laid-back, focused, and calm, very little can dent her California chill.
— Her description from the Dead Island website


Amy is a young Asian woman with black hair done up in a pair of space buns. She wears a red sports top with a fox head on the left side with fish-netting over the top, black and red jogging pants and black sneakers.
