Amaranthine is a chilly rock world with an atmosphere of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. Its frozen surface consists largely of light titanium and aluminum oxides, with deposits of thorium and other heavy metals located in the deep crust. Amaranthine was named by the human poet Sofia Cabral during her tour of duty aboard the Alliance surveyor ship Kupe. Under the dim light of the red dwarf Fortuna, the surface of this world is lit in rich twilight blues and purples even at midday.

- The word 'amaranthine' is a term meaning 'unfading' or 'everlasting', but also refers to a deep purplish-red colour, likely the source of the planet's name.
- Despite being considerably colder than both Xawin and Mavigon, Amaranthine has no cold hazard level. This may be because unlike Xawin and Mavigon, Amaranthine has no active blizzard, whereas the former two planets do.
- Amaranthine and Chohe have exactly the same ingame geography.
- BioWare also used this name in Dragon Age: Origins. It is a coastal region in the northeast part of Ferelden.
