Hi, I'm Amanda Stewart, aged 13. I started my life of crime at the age of 8. A robbery took place in my house the same night my mum would be coming back from the hospital after recovering from a heart attack.That night the burglars end up taking most of the valuable possessions in the house and the life of my mother and father.

And what was I doing, you might wander? I was a coward, hiding in my room till all the screams and shouts had died away.

I was going to be sent to an orphanage because all my relatives were reluctant to take me in. So I did the sensible thing; I ran away. Ever since then, I yearned for revenge.

For a while, I did go solo but eventually a clan of robbers took me in. The Cutthroats, they called themselves. To them, I was like family. To me, they were evil. They all remind me of the people - could I really call them that? - who murdered my parents. 

​They did teach me everything they knew about the subject and soon, I was better than them all. Most importantly, I was ready to take on anyone who stood in my way...
