Amelia Ley was the eldest child of Aloysius and Sophia Ley. She is talked about in the narrative but does not have any dialogue as Amelia, yet her story is inextricably woven into the quartet. Her tragic death at the age of sixteen gave birth to what became known as "the Beak's End curse".

Amelia reappears in a new incarnation, Renenet Rivière, near the end of Volume Four, "Tammabukku" as the daughter of Beau Rivière and Zaina Ouariti, her parents as Amelia. It was Aloysius and Sophia's wish to be reunited with their daughter in this world one last time.
