Yes, all right, Mr. Diary -- if you must know, I do think Amir's kind of pretty, for a dog eater.
― Eleanor Lamb[src]

Amir was one of Rapture's youth and Eleanor Lamb's childhood friend. Due to his name, it seems that Amir may have been of Arab descent.

History[]

Eleanor Lamb was not allowed to interact with other children in Rapture, as her controlling mother Dr. Sofia Lamb didn't want them to be a bad influence on her, seeing them as "Dog Eaters". Eleanor, being a curious child, wanted to meet these "Dog Eaters" and snuck out against her mother's will.[1] Eleanor came across Amir while he was picking on a smaller boy and she got into a fight with him, only stopping after she gave Amir a bloody nose.[2] They eventually made up and became friends. Eleanor even developed a crush on him, but her mother did not approve of this and she installed a security system to keep Eleanor away from Amir and the other children, which didn't stop Eleanor. Amir had a book about the surface world (likely a variation of an Atlas) which Eleanor enjoyed reading.[3]

After a series of unfortunate events, Eleanor was sent to the Little Sister's Orphanage in Siren Alley where she was to become a Little Sister. The day before the procedure, she planned to run away from the orphanage, find Amir, and escape to the surface with a Bathysphere, but Eleanor didn't make it out and her fantasy never came a reality.[4]

Behind the Scenes[]

  • Amir means 'prince' or 'commander' in Arabic.[5]
