Amis was a minor hero featured in the Babylon 5 episode The Long Dark.
Amis was portrayed by Dwight Schultz, who was most well known for playing Howling Mad Murdock on the A-Team, and Reginald Barclay on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Amis had been a member of the Earth Force Marines. Amis was a highly decorated soldier, Michael Garibaldi once said that Earth Force had pinned enough medals on his chest to open a gift shop.
During the Earth-Minbari war Amis was part of an infantry surviliance unit assigned to observe a Minbari outpost on a lifeless moon. A Soldier of Darkness began to feed on the people in his unit, killing everyone except Amis - which the Soldier kept alive as a snack. When Amis was recovered he only weighed 85 pounds. However the creature had remained part of him, and Amis did not feel quite right even after recovering from his ordeal.
By 2259 Amis had left the Marines and had wound up on Babylon 5. After sensing the Soldier of Darkness Amis had a breakdown and was arrested by station security. He would later help John Sheridan and station security by baiting the Soldier out into the open, where it was killed by the crew.
