Character Bio

Gul Dukat photo
Dukat, S.G. was a Cardassian military officer who served as Prefect of Bajor in the final years of the Bajoran Occupation.

One of Dukat's first assignments was cleaning out a compartment where three men had gone through an explosive decompression.
(DS9: "Waltz")

At some point prior to being stationed on Bajor, Dukat was a legate, but he lost favor with Cardassian Central Command and was reduced to the rank of Gul. (DS9: "Indiscretion")

He later rejected the title of legate because he felt Gul was more "hands on". (DS9: "Ties of Blood and Water")

By 2346 Dukat was made Prefect of Bajor.

(DS9: "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night")

In 2360 he was assigned command of Terok Nor, the mining station and command post in orbit of Bajor.
(DS9: "The Maquis, Part I")

Dukat was the last Prefect of Bajor before the end of the Occupation. He was responsible for many atrocities committed against the Bajoran people,
(DS9: "Emissary")

According to Dukat his first act as prefect was to cut labor camp output quotas by fifty percent, abolish child labor, and improve medical care and food rations.
(DS9: "Things Past", "Waltz")

Despite his professed hatred for his charges, he conducted numerous affairs with Bajoran women.
(DS9: "Indiscretion", "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night")

Dukat strongly opposed the Cardassian withdrawal from Bajor in 2369, a move which damaged his career.
(DS9: "Cardassians")

Dukat was implicated in the supplying of illegal weapons to Cardassian citizens in the Demilitarized Zone in 2370 by his political enemies, including Legate Parn.
(DS9: "The Maquis, Part I")

When the Cardassian Union underwent a revolution in 2372, Dukat sided with the victorious Detapa Council. He was promoted to Legate, and was made chief military adviser.
(DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")

Later that year, Dukat went to Dozaria to find the wreck of the Ravinok. He found his daughter alive and took her with him back to Cardassia.
(DS9: "Indiscretion")

After he returned with Ziyal, Dukat was demoted. His family disowned him, his wife and children left him, and both he and Ziyal were shunned by Cardassian society.
(DS9: "Return to Grace")

Disgusted with the Council's unwillingness to fight the Klingons Dukat began to carry on his own one-ship war.
(DS9: "Apocalypse Rising")

By 2373, Dukat became convinced that the only way to regain Cardassia's former glory was for them to join the Dominion.
(DS9: "By Inferno's Light").

Dukat chose not to promote himself back to legate, since he saw the rank of gul as more "hands-on".
(DS9: "Ties of Blood and Water")

One of Dukat's first acts was to have his Dominion allies release all surviving Cardassians from Internment Camp 371 with one exception – Elim Garak, who had not only killed Dukat's father but had also fallen in love with Tora Ziyal.
(DS9: "By Inferno's Light")

In the months after his taking office expelled the Klingons from Cardassian space and wiping out the Maquis with his newly gained Dominion allies. (DS9: "Call to Arms", "A Time to Stand")

However, victory was snatched from his grasp when the Dominion reinforcements were eliminated by the Prophets.
(DS9: "Sacrifice of Angels")

Afterward, Dukat began suffering from hallucinations and fits of paranoia, and was treated by Federation doctors.
(DS9: "Waltz")

In late 2374, Dukat believed he had found a way to destroy the Bajoran people and their Emissary.
(DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")

His inhabitation by Pah-wraith turned Dukat into their believer; subsequently he retreated to station Empok Nor and founded a community of members from the Cult of the Pah-wraiths. He was worshiped as a messiah.
(DS9: "Covenant")

In late 2375, Dukat secretly underwent cosmetic surgery on Cardassia Prime to pose as a Bajoran farmer, Anjohl Tennan.

Dukat's father was arrested and executed by the Cardassian government in an incident involving some arms dealers. Dukat blamed the Obsidian Order (DS9: "The Wire", "Improbable Cause", "By Inferno's Light")

Dukat was married and had seven children with his wife, including a son named Mekor. However, he also kept several Bajoran mistresses when he was Prefect on Terok Nor.
(DS9: "The Maquis, Part I", "Defiant", "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night")

While leading the Pah-wraith cult on Empok Nor in 2375 he had another half-Bajoran child, this time with one of his worshipers, Mika.
(DS9: "Covenant")

Dukat's closest friend was Damar. Dukat found Damar "useful" and despite the fact it was Damar who shot and killed his daughter, he later forgave Damar and came to him for help
(DS9: "Tears of the Prophets", "Penumbra", "'Til Death Do Us Part")

In the last few weeks of his life, Dukat became involved with Kai Winn Adami, while posing as Anjohl Tennan. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows")

Dukat was fond of Bajoran springwine. (DS9: "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night")
