"They were funny... Never the same again."
Mrs Cole to Albus Dumbledore[src]

Amy Benson was a resident at Wool's Orphanage, where Tom Riddle also resided as a child, from his birth on 31 December, 1926 to sometime before 1 September, 1938.

Tom took her, along with Dennis Bishop, to a cave near the spot where the orphanage kids were taken on a trip. After the trip inside the cave, she and Dennis did not act the same and seemed strange. Tom seemed to have done something so terrible inside the cave that the two orphans were frightened into silence.

Behind the scenes


The name "Amy" is the English form of the Old French name Amée meaning "beloved" (modern French aimée), a vernacular form of the Latin Amata.
