Personal History
In 2372, Glinn Damar was a relatively unremarkable officer serving under Gul Dukat aboard the freighter Groumall, after Dukat was demoted for rescuing his illegitimate half-Bajoran daughter Tora Ziyal from Dozaria. He and the rest of the Groumall crew were transported aboard a Klingon Bird-of-Prey commandeered by Dukat and Kira Nerys. Damar, who saw Dukat as a sort of mentor, joined him as they fought a one-ship war against the Klingons for more than a year. However, unlike his mentor, Damar was a by-the-book soldier, who had little talent for intrigue or subtlety. An ardent Cardassian nationalist, Damar harbored a deep dislike for the Bajorans. Damar continued to serve as Dukat's adjutant as Dukat negotiated the entry of the Cardassian Union into the Dominion in 2372, a move Damar supported as he expected it would restore Cardassia to its rightful place as a major power. He participated in the assault force that captured the Federation starbase Deep Space 9 (renamed Terok Nor), though he was disappointed that the Dominion's non-aggression pact with Bajor prevented them from going on to reclaim the planet. During the Cardassian Occupation he was promoted to Jagul skipping the rank of Gul and being in charge of the military forces and remaining Dukat's right hand man. He had a change of heart about being in the Dominion after reading a report written by Tasha Crusher that had found it's way to his desk. He and troops loyal to him killed the Founder and helped the Federation retake DS9.
