Born 2318, Karemma. Bengaal was a brilliant military man, and quickly rose through the ranks of the Karemma fleet. He eventually became a fleet captain, in charge of the entire Karemma fleet. He was in fact one of the most powerful people in the Dominion, having friends in every major fleet. But he was secretly opposed to the Dominion, and worked to overthrow it, in small ways, for many years. His actions were never discovered. But in 2357, he was travelling on his flagship, the Tonokta (a Karemma word meaning "first"). The ship's captain, Dalius Tostin, was investigating a tip that Bol Niroka, a traitor to the Dominion, would be on planet Tirosh. There turned out also to be a Vorta ship, the Closer, tracking another traitor, Tala, to the same planet. It was a complete coincidence they should be there at the same time, as they had never met before, and they both happened to be taking vacations there, a rarity for both of them. They would both have been killed if not for Bengaal, who warned them and got them to a safe hideout. He managed to destroy both Dominion ships in the process, and joined Niroka and Tala on Tirosh, in a city called Corsica. There they had discussions for several days, and finally officially established the Rebellion. They called themselves admirals, and Bengaal was named commander-in-chief of the Rebellion military. Bengaal, Niroka, and Tala eventually came to be refered to by the rebels as The Three. They brought together all their associates, who in turn brought together their associates, and the Rebellion began to grow from there. Soon there was a vast network of secret Rebel bases scattered around the quadrant. Bengaal, meanwhile, returned to Karemma. He was court martialed, and the Founders wanted him executed. But there was not enough proof that he was responsible for the destruction of the ships, so his life was spared. However, the Founders had at least enough influence to get the Karemma fleet to bust him down to ensign, permanently. For that reason, Bengaal decided that the lowest possible rank in the Rebellion would be Lieutenant, though he sarcastically named his own flagship, a Karemma Cruiser, the Ensign's Wrath. In 2375, the Rebellion won a major victory against the Dominion, and established their official headquarters on Tirosh, where they set up a new government. They have renamed the Rebellion: the Republic. Bengaal and Niroka became grand admirals, as they promoted a number of generals to the rank of admiral.
Born 2307, Vorta. Niroka grew up in an aristocratic family, one of the most powerful on Vorta. And he followed in his family's footsteps. When he was 25, he became a Senator in the Vorta World Council, and for years he was a great leader, one of the most powerful people on his world. However, he secretly was aiding a number of dissidents against the Dominion. His actions were discovered in 2352 by Senator Evazan Torat, who turned him in to the Dominion. Niroka barely managed to escape on a ship crewed by those who were loyal to him, a Vorta Dreadnaught called the Republic. However, his entire family was murdered in his stead. He continued his anti-Dominion activities for years. In 2357, he took a vacation, a rarity for him, on Tirosh. He was unaware he was being followed by a Karemma ship, the Tonokta. He would have died had he not been warned by Tarn Bengaal. Later, Niroka, Bengaal, and another anti-Dominion activist, Tala, had meetings for a few days, and officially established the Rebellion. The three named themselves admirals in the Rebellion, and brought together all their associates. Niroka, Bengaal, and Tala came to be refered to by the rebels as The Three. The Rebellion grew over the years, and in 2375 they had a major victory against the Dominion. They established a new government on Tirosh, and renamed themselves the Republic. Niroka became Chief Councillor of the Republic. Niroka and Bengaal became grand admirals, as they promoted a number of generals to admirals.
Born 2022, the Changeling homeworld. Tala was an artist, from before the time of the Dominion. At one point she spent a number of years visiting a remote planet on the edge of explored space, and when she returned, she found the long-exiled Jem'Hadar, a mistake of genetic engineering, for which her people were responsible, had taken over the Changeling homeworld and founded their Dominion. They executed all the changelings old enough to remember the way things used to be, and trained all young changelings to worship them as gods. The Founders taught changelings that they had been created by the Jem'Hadar. In addition, the Founders possessed a weapon named for the man who invented it, White. It could freeze changelings in one shape and speed up the natural decay process, killing them. Changelings became the elite enforcers, assassins, and spies for the Founders. They were kept away from each other, so as not to discover the truth by accidentally Linking. Tala was now the only changeling left who knew the truth, and she went about fighting the Dominion wherever she could, and converting any changelings she could by Linking with them and letting them know the truth. In 2357, she was taking a vacation on Tirosh, unaware that she was being tracked by a Vorta ship, the Closer. She would have been killed if not warned by Tarn Bengaal. Later, Tala, Bengaal, and Niroka held meetings and established the Rebellion, gathering their associates. The three named themselves admirals, and Tala acquired a Dosi Blockade-runner called the Sojourner. Tala, Bengaal, and Niroka came to be refered to by the rebels as The Three. In 2375, the Rebellion achieved a major victory against the Dominion, but not without great cost. Among the ships lost was the Sojourner, and all aboard were killed, including Admiral Tala.
Born 2345, Tind. Tulann was a captain at the Rebel base on Tind. He commanded a squadron of Tindan T-Wings. His own ship was the Grey Leader. In 2375, his base was captured while fighting the Dominion, and only Tulann and two other T-Wings from Grey Squadron escaped. They made it to Lator base, and joined them for a time. It wasn't long before one T-Wing, Grey Eight, was destroyed in battle. Grey Leader and Grey Five survived to fight in the major battle awhile later, and they both survived that as well. They then relocated to Tirosh, where Tulann was promoted to general, in charge of the new Republic headquarters in Corsica.
Born 2315, Vorta. Sil was an anti-Dominion activist for many years, and an associate of Senator Niroka. When the Rebellion was formed in 2357, Niroka made Sil a general, and put him in charge of one of the most important Rebel bases, on Vorta. Sil was a great leader, and one of his best abilities was to immediately determine where there was a possible problem, and just as quickly solve it. Often, those around him had no idea he was doing it until it was done. Sometimes they barely even realized there was a problem at all. He was a great asset to the Rebellion for many years, and when the Republic was established in 2375, he was promoted to admiral. He continued to serve on Vorta, where he is in charge of efforts to retake the planet from the Dominion. It isn't expected to take long.
Born 2334, Terra. When Dysan was 22, he and some friends stole a small Alliance ship to fight in the Terran Resistance. They were soon captured and all of them were killed, except Dysan, who was sent to Terok Nor as a slave. In 2369, he and a group of Terran slaves escaped, with the help of Quark and a Terran in Captain Sisko's crew. The eight escapees stole an Alliance Raider, which they renamed the Houdini. They stumbled through the wormhole and were discovered by Tarn Bengaal, who helped them establish a base on a small barren planetoid. Bengaal made Dysan a general in the Rebellion, which was fighting the Dominion. Bengaal got them two slightly larger ships, but Dysan continued to use the Houdini, which was also crewed by Commander Alex Franx and Lieutenant Tirosh Oklan. Franx later got himself a new ship, and it was just Dysan and Oklan on the Houdini. In 2375, the Rebellion won a major victory against the Dominion, but not without great cost. Among the many ships lost was the Houdini, and Dysan and Oklan died.
Samuel Esstar Lator
Born 2350, Terra. When Sam was seven, his brother Dysan and some friends stole a ship to fight the Alliance. Dysan was sent to Terok Nor as a slave. When Sam was 13, he and two friends, Jax DeSabel and Alex Franx, stole a small ship themselves, and went to Terok Nor to rescue Dysan. They miraculously made it all the way to Terok Nor before being captured. They became slaves themselves. In 2369, eight Terran slaves, including Sam, Dysan, Jax, and Alex, escaped in a stole Raider, the Houdini. The stumbled through the wormhole and were discovered by Tarn Bengaal, who helped them establish a base on a small barren planetoid. Sam became a captain in the Rebellion, which was fighting the Dominion. Bengaal got two new ships for Lator base, including a Karemma Warscout which Sam commanded and called the Trojan Horse. In 2375, the Rebellion won a major victory against the Dominion, but Dysan Lator was killed. Sam was promoted to general, and got command of Lator Base. He continues to command the Trojan Horse.
Jax Kirk DeSabel
Born 2350, Terra. Jax was friends with Sam Lator and Alex Franx, growing up. He became a bit of a hacker, and when he was 12 he stumbled across some information in an Alliance database. Sam's brother Dysan, whom they had all thought had been killed with his friends when they stole a ship to fight the Alliance, had actually been sent to Terok Nor as a slave. He told his friends, and the three of them made plans and stole a small Klingon ship to rescue Dysan. They made it to Terok Nor before being captured, and were slaves there for a number of years. In 2369, They and some other Terran slaves had help from Quark and a Terran in Sisko's crew, in stealing an Alliance Raider. They stumbled through the wormhole, and were discovered by Tarn Bengaal, who helped them establish a base on a small barren planetoid. Jax became a captain in the Rebellion, which was fighting the Dominion. Bengaal got two new ships for them, including a Karemma Warscout, which Jax commanded and called the Achilles' Heel. On a later foray into the alpha quadrant, Jax discovered that the Terran who had helped them escape had been killed by Garak for his actions. Jax tried to kill Garak for that, but was thwarted in his efforts, barely managing to escape again himself. While Jax had been a prisoner on Terok Nor, he had met a girl named Theresa Thurbur. He never got to know her well, but she was one of the escapees, and at the base they developed a relationship. In 2375, the Rebellion won a major victory against the Dominion, and Jax was promoted to general, and took charge of a major shipbuilding facility at Vorta. He got himself a new ship, a Vorta Dreadnaught which he called the General Chaos. Theresa also moved to Vorta, being promoted to captain and getting her own ship.
Alexander Vaughn Franx
Born 2349, Terra. Alex grew up friends with Sam Lator and Jax DeSabel. When Alex was 13, the three of them stole a ship and headed for Terok Nor to rescue Sam's brother Dysan. They were captured and made slaves. In 2369, eight Terrans escaped on an Alliance Raider, including Alex and his friends. They stumbled through the wormhold, and were discovered by Tarn Bengaal, who helped them establish a base on a small barren planetoid. Alex became a commander in the Rebellion, which was fighting the Dominion. He was on the crew of the Houdini with Dysan and Oklan, until in 2375 he captured his own ship in the middle of a battle. It was a Jem'Hadar one-man fighter, which he named the Captain's Fire. He chose this name partly in reference to Bengaal's Ensign's Wrath, and partly to celebrate the promotion Dysan gave him to captain when he captured the ship. That year, the Rebellion won a major victory against the Dominion, and Alex could likely have gotten a better job in the Republic elsewhere, but he chose to remain at Lator Base.
Born 2342, Karemma. Brillish worked in the Karemma fleet, and became a lieutenant commander on the same ship as Ensign Bengaal. Bengaal had a talent for sniffing out Rebellion sympathizers, and Brillish was one of them. In 2370, he asked Brillish to quit the fleet and go to Lator Base. Brillish agreed, and was made a commander in the Rebellion. He acted as an informant for Bengaal at the base. Bengaal secretly had such people working for him at all his bases, so he could keep appraised of what was really going on. It wasn't that he didn't trust his people, but he did like to be safe. Theresa Thurbur came to suspect this, but didn't do much more than keep a watchful eye on Brillish. In 2375, Jax was promoted to general and left the base. Brillish was promoted to captain, and took command of the Achilles' Heel.
Born 2357, Changeling homeworld. D'Artagnan was fairly new to his job as a spy, when he was captured in 2375 by the people he was supposed to be spying on, at Lator Base. Changelings, of course, were not given names by the Jem'Hadar who raised them. His assigned number was 275-06-3000. However, Sam Lator (not Captain Lator, but the Sam from our universe) took an interest in the changeling, and brought him to Vorta when Dysan's group went there to prepare for a major battle. The changeling was converted by Admiral Tala, and then joined our universe's Sam, Jax, and Alex on the Musketeer. Jax took to calling him D'Artagnan after that, or Dart, for short. He decided to keep the name. The Rebellion won a major victory against the Rebellion that year, but not without great losses. Among the casualties were Admiral Tala and apparently all the converted changelings. Now Dart was the only one of his people left who knew the truth, and he was rather new to it. But he felt it was his responsibility to take up Tala's work of converting his people. He was given a ship, a Dosi Blockade-runner which he called the Sojourner II. He is based on Tirosh, but spends very little time there, as his work takes him now to all corners of the Dominion/Republic, finding and converting changelings.
Born 1976, Terra. In 1992, she had what she refers to as "a little temporal accident," which she's never explained to anyone (except perhaps Jax). She ended up in 2368. Finding the planet controlled by the Alliance, she made as much trouble for them as she could before being captured and sent to Terok Nor. The next year, she was among 8 Terran escapees who stole an Alliance Raider and stumbled through the wormhole. They were found by Bengaal, who helped them establish a base on a small barren planetoid. The escapees became enmeshed in the Rebellion, which was fighting against the Dominion. Theresa became base commander, in many ways the second most powerful person on the base. She also began a relationship with Jax DeSabel, Captain of the Achilles' Heel. In 2375, the Rebellion won a major victory, and Theresa and Jax transferred to Vorta, where Jax became a general in charge of a major shipyard facility, Theresa became a captain in charge of her own ship, a Vorta Explorer she called the Tempus Destiny.
Born 2348, Voorsus Bastus. Jynar is Vooworshii. Before he was born, Vooworsh was assimilated by the Borg. As far as he knows, the only Vooworshii to escape were his parents. They escaped on a small ship which the renamed the Voorsus Bastus, which translates roughly as "final free people". Jynar was born on the ship, and a few months later they arrived in the Gamma Quadrant and settled on a Karemma colony world, Ok'rem'Tal. Jynar grew up with 3 close friends: Rosha and Arlissa Tintun, and Sikleth Tubren. As teenagers, the four of them formed their own small resistance group against the Dominion, and were quickly captured and imprisoned. They spent nearly a year in prison, until a friend of Bengaal helped them escape and got them into a larger Rebel group on Ok'rem'Tal. three years later Bengaal transferred them to Lator Base, in 2370. They all became commanders there. Jynar served on the Achilles' Heel, and when Jax left in 2375, Jynar thought he might become captain of it. Instead, that position went to Togan Brillish. Jynar decided to take over the position of base commander, recently vacated by Theresa Thurbur, who was now captain of a ship based at Vorta.
Born 2349, Terra. Centuries before the Alliance took over, Garth's ancestors started accumulating a library. Generations down the line, when the Alliance did take over, they outlawed most reading materials on Earth, and tried to keep people from learning to read much at all. But the Ardeen family kept its library hidden, a secret from the Alliance. Many people went there to learn to read, and then to read as much as possible. They had all sorts of books, newspapers, magazines of all sorts. they had all these things on discs and chips as well as on paper. Some stuff was academic or informational, but alot of it was just for fun. As a child, Garth read alot. Especially comic books. His favorite were from the 20th century, about the Legion of Super Heroes. As a teenager, he decided he would make himself into a superhero. He was already somewhat psychic, and a bit of a technical genius. He scrounged as much technology as he could lay hands on, and invented numerous devices himself. He implanted himself with lots of devices that gave him powers similar to some of those of various members of the Legion of Super Heroes. He called himself Legion, and set off as a one-man army to take back Earth. He had some successes, but was ultimately captured, his devices were removed, and he was sent to Terok Nor as a slave.

Tunan set off to find them, and stumbled through the wormhole. Her small ship was soon confronted by a patrolling Karemma ship, but not before a cloaked Trojan Horse transported her aboard without the Karemma ever knowing. She joined the crew of the ship, and eventually became a commander.
Born 2355, Tirosh. Murganna's father was a servant to Niroka, and was present at the meetings in 2357 when the Rebellion was formed. Murganna finally met Niroka in 2370, and asked him if she could be assigned to a Rebel base on Tirosh.

But then one day a local Cardassian overseer saw him on a talk show, and had him kidnapped. Hibberd was sent to Terok Nor as a gift to Intendant Kira, to be her personal chef. He had it better than most slaves, but he was still a slave. In 2369, he was among the 8 Terran escapees who started Lator Base.
