SRA DAZLAK: Starfleet officer (class of 2376). Lieutenant (JG). Male. Bajoran. Born on Jerraddo (Alpha quadrant). Son of Sra Cihrs & Sito Myra (aunt of Ensign Sito Jaxa) in 2360.
The Sra family settled on Jeraddo (Bajoran 5th moon) to get away from the Bajoran way of life, and to escape the Cardassian occupation of 2328. This moon was evacuated in 2369 when the Provisional government of Bajor ordered an energy-transfer project to provide more power for Bajor as part of the regeneration of Bajor after the Cardassians withdrew their annexe of Bajor. This is where Dazlak grew up. He decided to start his adult life apart from his parents, and at this time moved to Solaris IV. The Federation had set up a colony which quickly turned into a Bajoran refugee camp in the troubled time that led upto the Cardassian withdrawal.
This is where he met his former partner, Gerron, a male Bajoran operative
of the terrorist group The Maquis, and later provisional crewman
of USS Voyager after it was transported to the Delta quadrant. After
the Cardassian attack of that colony (2368) and the subsequent break
up this relationship, Dazlak decided to settle on Bajor whereas Gerron
joined the Maquis.
And so Dazlak entered SF Academy in 2371, although didn't finish his training until after the war with Dominion.Dazlak had always had a very close relationship with his cousin, Sito Jaxa, and whilst she was at Starfleet Academy he visited her reguarly and knew all about her exploits in Nova Squadron. He was devastated when he heard of her disappearance and presumed death. This was the chief cause of his sense of isolation from mainstream Bajoran culture and the chief catalyst for the changes in his life.
decision to apply to Starfleet academy was as a result of the encouragement
of a friend, Leeta, who he had met when he worked for the Bajoran Provisional
Government on Deep Space 9 for a brief time. Leeta was a Bajoran, dabo
girl in Quark's, a bar on Deep Space 9. Having an extensive knowledge
of Starfleet protocols and customs (she met a lot Starfleet officers
at the station), she willingly offered her assistance to Dazlak.
Dazlak's favorite foood is:hasperath, a traditional, fajhita style dish. He likes his hasperath variety is spiced with kava root.
