"You have incredible power inside you. People will come for it. They will come for you."
— Amelia to Cassie in a letter. [src]

Amelia Blake was the mother of Cassie Blake, daughter of Jane Blake, ex-girlfriend of John Blackwell, and true love of Ethan Conant. She was also a former member and leader of the Chance Harbor Circle.

Years after leaving Chance Harbor, Amelia was murdered by Charles Meade, forcing her daughter Cassie to move in Chance Harbor to live with her grandmother.

Amelia was a member of the Blake Family.


Early life

Amelia Blake is the first and only child of Jane Blake. Amelia was once a member of the previous generation of the Secret Circle along with Ethan Conant, Catherine Conant, Charles Meade, Elizabeth Meade, Thomas Chamberlain, Dawn Chamberlain, Patrick Glaser, Sophie Ann Glaser, Sara Armstrong, Richard Armstrong and John Blackwell. However, they did not bind their circle, leading to some dangerous consequences.[1]

Amelia, as part of the Blake Family, was said to be destined with Ethan Conant and their fates were said to be "written in the stars". It is apparent she at first defied destiny to be with John Blackwell, with whom she had a child, Cassie Blake. John Blackwell, supposedly afraid of Ethan and Amelia's destiny, told her her love for Ethan was rather a curse than a destiny. However, she must have found John had invented this curse and, at a moment, she had planned to run away with Ethan far away from the Circle.[2] (43).jpg
At the same time, the Circle was suffering from Witch-Hunters' assaults, lead by Eben. While John was willing to summon demons to fight them off, the whole Circle refused and some wanted to make a truce, swearing never to use magic again.[3] But John summoned the demons despite the Circle's decision, and Amelia had to help the Circle defeat them - both the demons and the hunters.[4] Unable to stop them all, her human friend, Heather Barnes, became possessed by Abaddon, and Amelia decided to spell her so that she would cause no harm, placing her into a coma .[5]

In the same time, the truce was revealed to be a trap organized by the Witch Hunters, Amelia and Ethan to kill Blackwell, but the witch hunters took advantage of Ethan's magic and slaughtered most of the members of the Circle.[6] Despite the fact Amelia had tried to warn some of them, like Elizabeth, to prevent them from being killed, they all went to the Boatyard on that night.[7]

After that, Amelia was stripped of her powers by the Elders along the four other surviving members - Dawn, Patrick, Charles and Ethan. She soon left Chance Harbor with her baby, far from her mother, from Ethan and from her memories of what happened.[1]


Cassie and Amelia

Raising Cassie and death

Amelia raised Cassie alone, often moving one place to another to prevent Cassie from facing her destiny. One night, after Cassie called her mother to report a flat tire, Charles Meade began to light matches outside of her home, causing everything to catch flame. Amelia tried to escape, but slipped on a puddle of water, rendering her unconsious. Her body was burned up in the fire, killing her.[8]


Amelia was a loving woman who cared for her family and friends, a trait which she passed to her daughter Cassie. According to her former friend Elizabeth Meade, Amelia was the one who brought John Blackwell into their lives, only seeing the good in him. She trusted him until his lies and deceptions caught up to him. Amelia then could not forgive him for betraying her. Amelia was very protective of her friends and family, as she tried to have John out of their lives for ever, even working with Witch Hunters to accomplish that goal, and tried to warn her friends of the danger of going to the Boatyard. Later consumed by guilt over her fallen circle members, she left Chance Harbor, Washington with Cassie and lived a nomadic life with her daughter until her death. Amelia left Ethan, her true love, and her mother Jane to protect Cassie from witchcraft during all her life, never letting her daughter know who she really was.
