Character Bio

Morn photo
Morn was a Lurian who was a frequent patron of Quark's and his best customer. He was known to be 'highly talkative', and enjoyed a wide variety of alcoholic beverages. Morn owned a shipping business that specialized in the transport of various mundane cargos.

(DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")

Morn was one of five thieves who stole 1,000 bricks of gold-pressed latinum from the Central Bank of Lissepia in the Lissepian Mother's Day Heist of 2365. Morn deposited the bricks in the Bank of Bolias and stored the latinum in his second stomach, causing most of his hair to fall out.

(DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")

The first time Morn walked into Quark's was around 2364, a time when he still had his hair. Quark thought he was just another customer passing through, when he sat down in what would soon be known as "his stool". Little did Quark know he would become such an important figure in his life, and to his bar.

(DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")

After the Cardassians retreated from Bajor in 2369, Morn remained on Deep Space 9, which was then under Federation control. Morn spent most of his time at Quark's.

(DS9: "Through the Looking Glass", "Emissary")

In 2370, with his freighter rendered inoperable during a warp core retrofit, Morn was seen evacuating the station on the last available runabout, the USS Ganges, during the short-lived Bajoran coup.

(DS9: "The Siege")

In 2371, Morn sat near Tom Paris in Quark's and watched as Quark tried to scam Ensign Harry Kim into buying worthless Lobi crystals, which Quark said he got from a strange creature called a "Morn".

(VOY: "Caretaker")

Odo saved Morn from becoming a victim of illegal search and seizure by a belligerent Klingon posse on the Promenade, who asked Morn "...what he was doing so far away from the Ionite Nebula".

(DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")

Quark even let Morn run the bar temporarily while he was on a trip to Earth in 2372.

(DS9: "Little Green Men")

In the weeks leading up to the Dominion War, Morn went berserk after hearing Quark's prediction of the coming doom. He hit Quark with a barstool, and ran out of the bar and through the Promenade, screaming "We're all doomed!" He then ran into the Bajoran shrine, completely naked, and began crying to the Prophets for protection.

(DS9: "Blaze of Glory")

In mid-2374, Morn went away on a business trip, leaving a shipment of Livanian beets in Cargo Bay 3.

The previous time Morn went away, Quark's sales dropped almost five per cent. So, while he was gone, Quark created a hologram of the Lurian because his bar was incomplete without him. People loved Morn, and he felt that he was a mascot – everyone who came into the bar expected to see him, and if they didn't it didn't feel like home – which wasn't good for Quark's business. After a period of over two weeks, the beets Morn had left in the cargo bay began to rot, causing Odo to seek him out in Quark's and ask that he remove them from the cargo bay. At the time Morn was away and it was the hologram, temporarily fooling Odo, to Quark's delight.

Quark then got word that Morn's cargo ship had been caught in an ion storm where he had died. Following Morn's memorial, Quark learned from Benjamin Sisko, who unsealed Morn's will, that everything of Morn's was left to Quark: four cargo containers of beets, a mud bath "bed", a painting of a matador, and one-thousand bricks of gold-pressed latinum (in assay office locker #137).

It was later determined that Morn faked his own death, after the statute of limitations ran out against the Lissepian Mother's Day Heist, in order to throw his fellow thieves off his trail. In return for Quark's assistance in getting the four other thieves off of his back, he offered Quark a quantity of the latinum that he had hidden in his second stomach.

(DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")

Morn had seventeen brothers and sisters.

(DS9: "Starship Down", "Chrysalis")

Morn was quite the ladies' man, and was often seen with a beautiful woman by his side.

(DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")

He also enjoyed playing dabo, but couldn't get the hang of darts.

(DS9: "Accession")

He and Worf frequently sparred, having weekly combat in the holosuite. Worf thought that he was an excellent sparring partner.
