Odo is a changeling, discovered floating in the Denorious
Belt in the Bajor System by Dr. Mora Pol in 2358 and taken back to the
Bajoran Institute for Science. The Bajoran scientists labeled him
"unknown specimen", which the Cardassians translated into
"odo'ital," Cardassian for "nothing". It was later
separated it into two words like a Bajoran name: Odo Ital. Odo must return
to a liquid form to rejuvenate every 16 hours. After years as a subject of
study, he assummed humanoid form and left the lab and became a constable
on the Cardassian station Terok Nor when Gul Dukat needed an impartial
being to investigate a spate of murders in 2365. He remained on the
station as Security Chief when the Cardassians withdrew from Bajor and the
Bajoran Provisional Government requested Federation assistance in
operating the station, renamed Deep Space 9. He is commonly referred to
as "Constable Odo" by station personnel. In 2371, the U.S.S.
Defiant discovered the homeworld of the Founders of the Dominion in the
Omarion Nebula in the Gamma Qudrant. He married Ambassador Lwaxana Troi of
Betazed in 2372 when she found out that her yet unborn baby would be taken
away from her. The marriage was later annulled.
