In J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium, Amras (IPA: [ˈamras]) is a fictional character, the twin brother of Amrod being the youngest sons of Fëanor and Nerdanel. Through their maternal grandfather Mahtan they inherited red hair (probably a dark red), instead of Fëanor's black.

Amras' father name in Quenya is Pityafinwë, "Little Finwë". His mother name is Ambarussa, "Top-russet", and this refers to his hair. His younger twin Amrod was also called Ambarussa, and they both answered to the name.[1] In Tolkien's late revisions, the name of the elder twin Ambarussa was "Amros" in Sindarin, instead of the older form "Amras".[2] The name of the younger twin, Amrod, was the Sindarin version of "Ambarto".[3]

Amras became a hunter, who held the southern lands of the March of Maedhros. Amras survived most of the War of the Jewels, but eventually fell in the Kinslaying of Sirion.

Other versions of the legendarium[edit]

In the published Silmarillion Amras only appears together with his twin brother Amrod, but in late writings which were left out of the edited Silmarillion by Christopher Tolkien the story of Amrod's death at Losgar appeared. For this reason wherever both Amrod and Amras appear in the published material it should be read as Amras alone.[citation needed]
