"About how we’re going to protect this city for the threat of magic, starting with those witches that always seem to be involved."
—The mayor to Agent Murphy.

Amanda Freeman is the mayor of San Francisco in 2008. She is a stern and confident woman, causing many to view her as heartless or be intimidated by her. She is aware of the existence of magic and possesses a ruby amulet that shields her from certains forms of magic.


Early LifeEdit

As a young woman, Amanda fell in love with Edgar Miles, a Witch Doctor, though she never believed the rumors about his family practicing dark magic. When her sister Candice wanted to become a singer, Edgar arranged for her to sing at his family's club, The Cauldron. However, she interrupted an exorcism and was possessed by something evil. The Witch Doctors tried to save her, but were unable to, leading to her death.

Edgar felt guilty for bringing her into the club and not being able to save her, fearing that Amanda would never forgive him. Believing he was protecting her, Edgar never told Amanda the truth and instead shut her out. With her sister gone, Amanda finally believed the rumors about dark magic and accused the Witch Doctors of being involved with her sister's disappearance. However, the police were never able to prove anything and the case was closed.

Due to the loss of her sister and feeling betrayed and abandoned by Edgar, Amanda developed a strong hatred from magic. She changed her name and eventually became mayor of the city. One of the financiers of her campaign was Alaric Brewman.

War Against MagicEdit

After her city was overtaken by the Brotherhood, the mayor worked with Agent Murphy to control the situation. She was later confronted by the demon Klea and offered a deal. Seeing no other alternative, the mayor agreed. However, the Brotherhood was subsequently vanquished by the Chosen. The mayor suspected that forces of magic would erase the memories of mortals, though her amulet would prevent this. She then met with agent Murphy again and told him she wanted to protect the city from magic, starting with the witches.

In order to rid her city of witches, the mayor hired witch hunter Makayla Porter. However, when one of her sources later spotted the witches, the mayor knew she had failed and decided more drastic measures were needed.

The mayor ordered a team of scientists to create a virus deadly to the magical community after the demon Margoyle was found with a virus created by the government. She presented her work to Agent Murphy, whom she believed to be on her side. However, Murphy asked the Chosen to help destroy the virus as he didn't want good people to get infected. The mayor and her armed guards confronted them at the lab, though she was shocked to discover that one of her scientists, Ramsey Tate, had magically escaped with the virus.

Reunion with EdgarEdit

Amanda went to Berkeley to give a speech, but learned of Billie Jenkins's presence, she joined her in the company of two armed men. Seeing Brandon trying to free Darcy from a poltergeist there, reminded her of her sister's loss, and decided to take Brandon and Billie. She did not succeed because Paige Matthews, orbited them in the bay. Brandon quickly explained what was happening and then teleported all those present to The Cauldron. Amanda was shocked to see Edgar again after so many years. They talked about Candice for a while until Amanda was seized by rage and stopped the exorcism, so the poltergeist became active again. In the end Edgar told her the truth about what had happened to Candice, and Billie confided to her that she had lost a sister too because of the magic. Everyone then puts aside their differences to perform an excorism. After the poltergeist was drawn and defeated, Amanda left.

Edgar later confronted Amanda in her office, stating that he still loved her. However, Amanda replied that it was too late and told him to leave.
