He concealed evidence that his father, ja'roD, provided the Romulans with secret Klingon access codes, wich later led to the Romulan attack on Khitomer, known as the Khitomer massacre. Instead he fabricated false evidence so that it looked like mogh, father to Worf, was the traitor. He forced the High Council to rule against the house of mogh, even though Council leader K'mpec knew of the false evidence.

Later, after the K'mpec's death, he sought to suceed him as leader of the High Council. He saw his only chance in using a bomb to kill his compeditor Gowron, but he proved to be unsuccessful. He was also suspected to have killed K'mpec by poisoning him, although rumors also said Gowron might have been responsible for his death.

Duras later killed K'Ehleyr, Worf's mate, when she was close to revealing his treachery on the Khitomer massacre. He was subsequently killed by Worf, who sought his right of vengeance.
