Amity Blight is a lesbian character from The Owl House.
As the top of her class, Amity Blight is character that originally was known as the antagonist seeing her bully the main character/protagonist (Luz Noceda) and Luz's friend, Willow Park, but later had a redemption arc after getting to know Luz better, falling in love with her, and revealing that Amity's parents were forcing Amity to sever ties with Willow and saying she couldn't be friends with her because she is too weak. Thanks to Luz, she now reconciles with Willow and is now friends with her, Luz and Gus after standing up to her mother. In "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door", she and Luz are now dating.
Amity has chin-length hair with a ponytail pulling the front hair out of her face, pale skin, and bright golden eyes. Like most witches, she pointy ears. Amity's hair is two-toned, comprised of shades of aquamarine with brown hair—her natural hair color—visible at the roots. Near the end of "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", Amity decides to dye her hair lilac, with brown hair visible at her temples.
Earlier in the show, Amity is very mean to others she views as inferior such as Luz and Willow and is seen as an antagonist. Later in the series when she sees it was her parent's pressure for success, family reputation, and emotional abuse is what caused her to behave like this and antagonize Willow, Luz, and Gus, we see the sweet side of her. Her biggest fear was Luz rejecting her. She became very protective of Luz and gave up the portal key to the Golden Guard, or Hunter, to protect her.
The Owl House creator Dana Terrace confirmed that Amity Blight is a lesbian, making her the first major recurring LGBT character in a Disney animated series. Dana Terrance cleared up in a Reddit thread that Amity is a lesbian.
Amity is only ever shown attraction to Luz. She begins crushing sometime in later season one (it’s assumed around episode 13), blushing and stumbling over her words frequently, and it continues even when the two become an official couple in episode 8 of season 2.

Due to a few misunderstandings with Luz, Amity has initially treated her with nothing but hostility, contempt, and resentment, even going far as to nearly getting Luz killed hypocritically calling her a bully but at the end "of Lost in Language" she sees that Luz never meant any harm and her own hurtful attitude wasn't helping and decides to reflect on herself to become a better person, she becomes nicer to Luz as the series progresses.
Amity's crush on Luz first starts to show midway through season 1, when she blushes around her.
It becomes steadily more obvious throughout the first season, especially in "Enchanting Grom Fight" when she plans on asking Luz to be her date for Grom, and in "Wing it like Witches" when she has moments of "gay panic" whenever Luz is around or when they talk.
Luz appears totally oblivious to Amity's crush on her, but in the second season, she seems to begin to reciprocate Amity's feelings in "Escaping Expulsion".
In "Through the Looking Glass Ruins", near the end of the episode, Amity kisses Luz on the cheek, suggesting that she is ready to confess her crush, but later walks away muttering "why did I do that?"
In "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door", Hooty kidnaps Amity and sends her and Luz through a tunnel of love to help the two get together, only for Luz to destroy everything out of fear of ridicule over the corny scenario, leaving Amity dejected, but eventually they confess their feelings for each other and start dating. Hooty even refers to Amity as Luz's "GF".
In "Eclipse Lake", Amity is trying to prove that she's an awesome girlfriend by taking care of Luz when she comes down with the "Common Mold". Meanwhile, She and Luz are using two little gaming devices to communicate with each other using symbols; but Amity doesn't understand yet the message that Luz has sent to her, which was "U R PRETTY". When Eda decides that she and King will go to Eclipse Lake to get Titan's Blood for Luz, Amity immediately volunteers to go with them, still wanting to prove herself to Luz. After capturing Hunter, the Golden Guard, Amity becomes protective when Hunter tries to make a threat if he ever saw Luz again, after calling him a "bad but sad boy". Later, Amity becomes worried when Hunter interprets the new message from Luz as a threatening reminder to come back with Titan's Blood, or else Luz will break-up with her. Amity rebuts this by saying that she's an "awesome girlfriend", but Hunter quickly asks her if Luz has ever said that, which made Amity even more worried. Out of desperation to not fail Luz, Amity disobeys Eda, and takes matters into her own hands. After Amity and King discover that Eclipse Lake is empty, Amity feels that she has failed Luz, and believes that Luz will break-up with her because of the message Luz sent earlier. But when Amity shows the message to King, he turns the device on its side, revealing that Luz has been using the symbols as letters that says, "U R RAD", "FOOLS BLOOD BAD", "U OKAY", and "COME HOME". Amity is relieved, knowing that Luz still loves her and only cares about her safety more than the success of the mission. After a witches' duel with Hunter for the portal key, he and Amity come to a stalemate; but when Hunter threatens Luz's life by revealing that he knows where to find her, Amity is forced to surrender the key to Hunter (but not before breaking the key in her hand and letting some of the blood leak on to her glove), and tells him to stay away from Luz. When Amity, King, and Eda (stuck in harpy mode) return to the owl house, Luz, who already feels better, hugs Amity first, saying that she's "so glad that her awesome girlfriend is okay", with Amity feeling the same way about Luz.
In "Follies at the Coven Day Parade", Amity startles Luz when she drops in and gives her opinion about why Emperor Belos wears a mask. Amity then greets Luz by saying “Hola batata”, making Luz question if Amity called her a sweet potato. Amity reveals that she has been learning how to speak Spanish using the cook book titled “Mama Pura’s Recipes” that she borrowed from Gus. Touched by her gesture, Luz blushes and responds by saying, “Aw Amity, you’re the Sweet Potato” while scooting over to Amity causing them both to blush.
In "Any Sport in a Storm", during Hexside's "Club Fair Day", Luz has set up a stand for her and Amity's "Azura Book Club", which Boscha mocks to show how ridiculous the book is. Just then, Amity shows up, exhausted from running, to tell Luz something important. Luz then says "Spill it, hermosa", (hermosa is Spanish for "beautiful"), to which Amity replies that the author of the "The Good Witch Azura" books is having a book signing in the afternoon, in the bookstore where they sell the Azura books. Despite the information, Luz is confused by that, as she knows that the author is human; but Amity denies this by claiming that the author is from the Demon Realm. Amity and Luz then compare the pictures of the author on both books, and notice that the author on Amity's book has pointy ears. This makes both Luz and Amity wonder if the author could possibly travel between the two realms. They run off together, holding hands, to meet the author, and leave Boscha behind, who was, throughout Luz and Amity's conversations about author, constantly being ignored by the couple.
