Character Bio

Vedek Bareil.Antos photo
Bareil Antos was a prominent Bajoran spiritual leader during the years immediately after the Cardassian Occupation. He was the leading candidate to become the next Kai after Opaka, but withdrew his candidacy shortly before the election took place, clearing the way for the elevation of Winn Adami to Kai.
Bareil spent his early years living under the yoke of Cardassian rule. He grew up in the Relliketh refugee camp.
(DS9: "Shadowplay")

At the age of five he met a Bajoran monk who grabbed him the first time on his ear, to feel his pagh. As a chronical misbehaver, Bareil became his favorite victim and the monk was able to "virtually squeeze the pagh out of his ear with his thumb and forefinger."
(DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets")

Latterly in the Occupation Bareil became a gardener at the Bajoran Monastery of the Kai and his own goal was to plant the most beautiful Feloran bromiliads on the planet but eventually devoted his life to the Prophets, becoming a vedek.

When Kai Opaka disappeared in 2369, Bareil became the leading candidate to replace her in that role. Bareil spent the time before the election in seclusion, but was drawn to space station Deep Space 9 by his opponent, Winn Adami. He decided to visit the station after a school run by Keiko O'Brien was bombed by Bajoran fundamentalists who were against her teaching that the wormhole prophets were aliens. Bareil hoped to act as a peace mediator. While Bareil was aboard the station an assassination attempt was made on him engineered by Vedek Winn, who wished to be Kai, but the attempt failed.
(DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets")

Bareil aided Major Kira Nerys in exposing the plot to overthrow the Bajoran government by Jaro Essa, who was unwittingly being aided by the Cardassians. Kira was hurt in a shuttle crash as she was trying to deliver evidence of the plot to the Chamber of Ministers. Bareil sent his aides to rescue Kira, had her wounds tended to at his monastery, and helped disguise her and Jadzia Dax as monks. Bareil accompanied the women to the Chamber of Ministers where they presented evidence that foiled Jaro's coup.
(DS9: "The Siege")

When Bareil was tied to the infamous Kendra Valley Massacre, he withdrew from consideration for Kai. Bareil had taken the blame for Kai Opaka's role in the massacre. She had allowed her own son and 42 other Bajorans to be killed during the Occupation to prevent over 1,200 deaths in the Kendra Valley. Bareil took the fall to protect Opaka's memory.
(DS9: "The Collaborator")

In 2371, Bareil visited the station for the Bajoran Gratitude Festival. There he was infected by Zanthi fever, which Lwaxana Troi had unknowingly transmitted to those at the station party. This caused misplaced amorousness in people who had been near her, and caused latent, subconscious attraction to others. Bareil amorously chased Dax, became jealous of Benjamin Sisko, and hit Sisko; Dax subsequently punched Bareil. Doctor Bashir was able to cure him of the fever.
(DS9: "Fascination")

After the election, Bareil joined Winn as her key adviser in negotiating the Bajoran-Cardassian Treaty. Bareil negotiated for five months with Legate Turrel. Just before the signing of the treaty, he was injured in a plasma explosion on board a Bajoran transport vessel. Dr. Bashir was able to bring him back from the brink of death. However, Bareil refused life-saving treatment in order to complete the negotiations since Kai Winn was not experienced enough to handle the Cardassians by herself. Dr. Bashir told him that he should be placed in stasis for an undetermined period of time so his injuries could heal. Bareil insisted that Bashir find another solution, so he could remain conscious to help Winn. Bareil believed it was the Prophets who spared him in the explosion so that he could ensure the success of the peace talks. Bashir, on the orders of Bareil, gave him an experimental drug that let him function for a few days, but endangered his life. The drug did irreversible damage to his organs, but not before he helped Winn finish the negotiations and a peace treaty was finished with the Cardassians. The Vedek died shortly after the treaty was signed on Deep Space 9.
