It was portrayed that Amara found Empath intriguing because they shared an entitled, patrician upbringing. And I could almost buy that if it weren't for his creepy power set. In his early appearances he told Emma Frost he could MAKE her love him, and proceeded to have her groveling at his feet (while dressed in her normal fetish-wear, if I recall). Although Emma was just toying with him and playing along for a gag - as a telepath she could resist his manipulations. But being a horse-killing psychopath, she encouraged his more vicious instincts. That was who she was before Morrison declared her heroic.

I never read the issue where Amara confronted Empath for manipulating her. Does Amara feel violated? I thought in the aftermath of the Decimation they were growing close again. Of course, Amara had just seen her current BF incinerated to death in front of her, so she was emotionally vulnerable then even without Empath using his powers on her.

She hasn't been close with Empath since the whole Nova Roma thing in New Warriors.

The two crossed paths during X-Treme X-Men, and she immediately laid into him, probably because the Nova Roma thing. He did kind of rescue her after her boyfriend died in the volcano during the Decimation (she and Empath were by no means together), but this is when she laid into him again, thinking he was controlling her (it was that guy Johnny D).

After this, she was on her own, and then had a date with Mephisto. Huh?! Yeah. Maybe she's just a strange girl. She learned her lesson with that one. I hope.

She finally caved and sort of hooked up with Sunspot by the end of the last New Mutants series. But that seems to have gone nowhere.
