Ameila Thumps was a nit who possibly had the gift of fading. She was the husband of Hector Thumps and the grandmother of Leven Thumps. She was presumed to have died in The Whispered Secret due to the gunt, at age 153, until it was revealed in The Ruins of Alder that the gunt had merely made her younger.


Ameila first appears in The Gateway to Foo. She places Winter Frore into the hospital where she will be raised into her second body. She then appears when Leven, Winter, Geth and Clover come into Foo through the Gateway.

She also appears in The Whispered Secret when the rovens attack and destroy her home. She falls into the chasm the rovens created and dies there as well.
