Audrey Louise Renton (Known as Amity among the Squirrel Scurry) is a character in Human Nature and is the first of the Forest Children introduced. Audrey was adopted by the Squirrel Scurry faction of the Fallen Woods and is their prized fighter. Audrey is later brought to Society where she is reunited with her birth father by Hope.
Audrey was a mere 3 weeks old when her mother, father, and grandmother had to flee their base in Limestone City after a horde of mutants broke through their barriers. Audrey's father attempts to fight off the mutants with a baseball bat but is overpowered, he yells for his wife and mother to run away with his baby daughter as he continues to attempt to overpower the mutants. Audrey's mother and Grandmother quickly leave through a hole in the back of the building and make off down the street. As they reach the end of a broken road, some mutants appear from the wreck of a car and chase after the three. The grandmother fights them off, ordering the mother to run into the forest away from the city and protect her granddaughter. Reluctantly, she agrees and runs into the woods away from the city and mutants. 4 days pass and the woman is on the verge of death, stumbling through the trees before falling down to her knees and propping herself up against a tree. She says sorry to her baby and closes her eyes prepared to die. A scurry of Giant Squirrels pass by the dying woman, they stop and talk among themselves before making off with the baby. The Squirrels take her to their Squirrel City known as the Scurry and introduce the baby to the leader of the Squirrels, Aycra. Aycra names the baby Amity, and elects to raise the baby as a warrior to fight off the rival faction, the Foxes Burrow. Aycra orders all of the Squirrels to collect enough acorns and nuts in order to give the child a healthy development and allow her to become a powerful fighter. 17 years later, Amity is set to fight in a war against the other Factions for full domination over the Fallen Woods, but her Human Nature kicks in and she wants to fight alongside the Humans.

Relationships With Others
Audrey's relationship with Axl is a complex one. At first, the two are displayed as mortal enemies, with Audrey being from the Squirrel Scurry and Axl from the Fox Burrow. After a battle leaves the two trapped inside Inkcap Cave, Audrey spares Axl's life when her Human Nature kicks in and the two are forced to work together to escape from Scribble. After exiting the cave the two reluctantly part, this is short lived as the residents of the Raccoon Crescent capture them both and take them to Phyllis. Phyllis' change of heart leads the three of them to the Panda Tribe and the introduction of Axl's sister, Gigi. Their relationship is strained after Gigi sides with Audrey over Axl and the two remain separate until the Society attack when all of the Humans band together to defeat the Animals incoming attacks. In the Epilogue it is hinted that the two may have started a romantic relationship together but this is still up for debate.
Audrey and Phyllis have little interaction but the two are seen to be on good terms. Audrey consoles Phyllis after the death of Luna and with Axl's help the three leave Raccoon Crescent for the Panda Tribe. Later, while running from Mutants, Phyllis is dragged to the ground by some mutants and believed to have been bitten, Audrey pulls Gigi away from Phyllis believing her to be already dead. Audrey mourns over a corpse that is believed to be Phyllis' mutated body and is later relieved to find her alive at Eagle's Roost. After her retrieval, Phyllis is shown rarely interacting with Audrey until the Society attack when Phyllis' protects Audrey from an incoming Acorn Bomb before the initial battle begins. In the Epilogue the two are shown to be on good terms and Audrey is seen attending the wedding of Phyllis and Gigi.
Gigi and Audrey are shown to be decent friends. After learning that Gigi is a trans woman, Audrey is shown to be fully accepting and doesn't treat her any differently. Audrey and Gigi's relationship is heavily strained after she pulls Gigi's hand away from Phyllis' while outrunning the Mutants, with Gigi claiming that Audrey did this out of spite and hate. Believing that Phyllis had been killed and mutated by the mutants, Audrey offers to put down what is believed to be the mutated corpse of Phyllis, Gigi denies this and kills the mutant herself, blaming Audrey for Phyllis' "death". After learning Phyllis is safely in the hands of the Eagle's Roost, Gigi slowly begins to forgive Audrey. They rarely interact again until the Society attack when they fight alongside one another. In the Epilogue the two are shown to have made up and Audrey attends her wedding.
Although Audrey and Ahmed's interaction is limited, the two are shown to have decent chemistry. Audrey is shown to be impressed by Ahmed's fish catching abilities and offers to trade him some Acorns for Salmon. During the clash between the Panda Tribe and Grizzly Quarters, Audrey sides with Gigi over Ahmed, straining their relationship. When the mutants arrive at the battlefield the two sides are separated and the two are left separate until they reunite at the Porcupine Fortress where he informs them of Phyllis' whereabouts. During the retrieval of Phyllis, Audrey convinces Ahmed to take Eden to Society where they can start crafting and practicing using weapons. During the Society attack, Audrey pulls a mutant from Ahmed and the two fight off the Animals together along with the other Humans. In the Epilogue Audrey and Ahmed are shown to be close friends and are seen fishing together.
At first, Eden's spoiled attitude and reluctance to fight annoys Audrey and she believes she has no use. When it is revealed that Eden has highly advanced carpentry and craft skills the two begin to tolerate each other. Audrey sends Eden away to Society later on with Ahmed to teach the Humans how to craft and use weapons.
