Amaro Fonteen was an operatic actor that lived during the Imperial Period.[2] He portrayed Duros scout Banu Hydia in the opera, The Kallea Cycle, during its premiere on Brentaal on 38:2:13.


During his performance as Hydia, he wore green pigment on his face and hands, red pigment over his eyes, and a rubber prosthetic to cover his nose in order to play the character. Controversy erupted in the media when it was found that Fonteen, a Human, would be playing the role of Hydia, instead of being traditionally sung by a Duros double bass vocalist. The Brentaal Council on High Human Culture and the Brentaal Hall Conservatory both released statements that denounced the "narrow-minded idea that a Duros role could not be voiced by a human".[1]
