Amarie was a female musician in the 24th century who played in a bar on Qualor II. She was from an unknown race of aliens, and she appeared to be ideally suited to playing the piano: she had two pairs of hands. She enjoyed suck salt, though she considered it a nasty habit. She was married for a time to an arms smuggler.

In 2368, the USS Enterprise-D encountered and killed Amarie's ex-husband in his warship when it did not respond and attacked it. To gain more information about him, the ship visited Qualor II in order to talk to Amarie. She offered to play Andorian blues for Commander William T. Riker. Instead of paying her money for information, Riker taught her some jazz routines on the piano. She also played a selection from the Klingon opera Aktuh and Maylota for Worf. Riker asked her about the ex-husband and she directed him to Omag, a Ferengi arms trader, who she said always wanted to hear the same song, "Melor Famagal". (TNG: "Unification II")

Amarie was played by actress Harriet Leider. Cindy White worked as photo double for her during the close ups of her hands and pianist Jerry Zimmer performed the piano music and the second pair of hands seen in the episode. The producers were not pleased with Leider's voice and voice actress Judi M. Durand re-recorded her dialogue during post production. (citation needededit)
Her species may be the same race as the unseen Terellians, who were also known to have four arms.
In Jeri Taylor's novelization of "Unification," she gives the name of Amarie's homeworld as "Talemstra".
