Amber could be considered the trouble-maker of her friendship group; Amber loves making mischief, no matter the consequences. Amber is very competitive, shown by her frequent attempts to upstage all of Ingrid's accomplishments.
Amber is not a very studious pupil of Elmsmere, frequently talking back to teachers, skipping homework and cheating on tests.
She is very concerned with her social standing. When Amber first joins Elmsmere, she is pleased at the prospect of finally being "one of the cool ones". However, this plan is quickly stunted by the fact her sister, Lizzie Baker, is a science teacher at the school. Amber took a strong anti-authoritarian approach in an attempt to combat comments denoting her as a teacher's pet.
Amber has a very love-hate relationship with Ingrid; despite frequently arguing, the pair still hang out and occasionally work together in order to achieve mutual goals.
When Lizzie and Dexter Harris get together, Amber begins to visit the Carter flat on a more regular basis, even sleeping over on occasion. This leads to a sibling-like relationship between Amber and Nero Johnson. Despite frequent arguments, the pair do care for each other. For example, when Zoe-Marie Ingham threatens Amber in Flower, Nero steps in to protect her.
Amber is dark-skinned and has a variety of coloured beads in her braided black hair. Amber is the shortest of her friend group, which leaves her open to insult from bullies; especially from Ingrid.
