Amelia: I just ... I shouldn't have ever left her. I-I thought if I could find Jimmy, I would make everything right. But I should've never left her.
– Amelia Novak, 10.20 Angel Heart
Amelia Novak is the wife of Jimmy Novak, who is the vessel for the angel Castiel. Amelia and Jimmy have a daughter together, Claire Novak. The family lived in Pontiac, Illinois. After Castiel repossessed Jimmy, Amelia began a search for him and fell prey to Grigori Tamiel. After being rescued by Castiel, Amelia sacrificed herself to save her daughter from the Grigori, leaving Claire an orphan. However, Amelia was finally reunited with her husband in Heaven.
When Jimmy starts talking about angels, saying that he's being called upon for something bigger, Amelia gives him an ultimatum: either he gets psychiatric help, or she takes their daughter to her mother's house, away from him. Jimmy leaves to act as Castiel's vessel, and Amelia doesn't see him for almost a year. Jimmy returns and asks to become involved with Amelia and Claire's lives again. Amelia agrees, but as they sit down to dinner, the family is attacked by demons possessing their neighbors. They are rescued by Sam and Dean.
Jimmy leaves Amelia and his daughter and goes with Sam and Dean, realizing that he would only be putting his family in more danger by staying with them. It is then revealed that Amelia has been possessed by a demon, presumably during the attack on their home. She holds Claire hostage to bring Jimmy out of hiding, and shoots him. She is saved during a fight in which Castiel reappears, manifesting inside Claire, and in which Sam exorcises the demon possessing her. Castiel leaves Claire at Jimmy's urging, reoccupying his former vessel. Amelia is last seen holding her daughter, staring in shock at the angel in her husband's body.
Claire tells Castiel that a few months after "The Rapture", Amelia dropped Claire off at her grandmother's and left to "find herself." She still hasn't returned.
After Jimmy became Castiel's vessel for a second time, Amelia began a search for him for years, sending her daughter postcards at her grandmother's where Amelia had left her. Her search eventually led her to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2013 where she met Ronnie Cartwright who directed her to a faith healer named Peter Holloway who had healed his blindness. However, Holloway was really a Grigori named Tamiel who was feeding off of human souls and he imprisoned her and began feeding on her. Having lost contact with her mother, Claire believed that Amelia had abandoned her. After her disappearance, the motel manager found her stuff which eventually found its way to Claire at a foster home.
In 2015, Claire began a search for her mother using her diary and postcards. Claire's search led her to Tulsa where Amelia's diary had mentioned her meeting with Ronnie and her last postcard said she had been. After learning of what was happening, Sam, Dean and Castiel aided Claire in her search and with information from Ronnie and hacking Amelia's credit card records, they finally located her. While Castiel was able to wake her up, he was unable to heal the damage that Tamiel did to her. Amelia was grateful for Castiel's rescue of her even though she could tell Jimmy was no longer there and was happy to hear that Claire was alright, saying that as long as Claire was safe, Castiel had kept his promise to Jimmy. After finding out that Tamiel was a Grigori, Dean and Claire came to rescue Sam and Castiel and mother and daughter had a tearful reunion. As Claire tried to help a weak Amelia out of the barn, Tamiel appeared and told them that Amelia was beyond saving. Claire tried to kill him with a gun and failed so Tamiel tried to kill her with his angel sword, but Amelia sacrificed herself to save her daughter. Her death was avenged minutes later when Claire killed Tamiel with his own sword. After her death, Amelia went to Heaven where she was finally reunited with the real Jimmy. Amelia told Jimmy about their daughter and how proud she was of her and the two embraced.
