Ivy began her life as Amanda, daughter of Meri Lin and Fred. She got a different name when she began her role as the fifth narrator in Negative One, first appearing in #0161: ivy #1: big.


IF YOU'RE JUST BROWSING CHARACTERS AND YOU HAVEN'T READ UP TO THE POINT WHERE THE IVY COMICS START, DON'T READ ANY MORE OF THIS DOCUMENT UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND SPOILERS.


Ivy began telling her own story when she flew out her bedroom window shortly before her second birthday. Right now in the Negative One storyline she's just a lost baby with incredible powers, and she's going to have to learn quickly and get lucky in order to survive. Her telekinetic powers have made it possible for her to cover long distances quickly--which explains how she got so far from her parents' apartment without much time in which to do so--and she can protect herself with it if anyone tries to hurt her.

Ivy's journey toward finding her place in the world has begun. She'll be learning to use her powers for her own benefit, making friends, and probably freaking a lot of people way the hell out.

She's gotten some help from well-meaning caregivers while on her own in the city, most notably Melanie, Theresa, Tonya, Mr. Erick, and Miss Margaret and her daughter Charlotte, who have all approached taking care of her in different ways (with various amounts of success). She's slowly become somewhat independent, able to figure out how to feed herself and find shelter (though her hygiene isn't good without an older person taking care of her and reminding her to wash and brush her hair). There are also the dangers associated with being such an oddity, and some guys who run a fruit stand took great pains to interrupt her existence for someone else's benefit. As a child alone in the city, she is na´ve but learning who and how to trust.

Ivy has pale skin, blonde hair, oversized green eyes, and pointed ears. She was born with four fingers on each hand and four toes on each foot. She loves fruit and bread, sparkles, stuffed animals, and flying games.
