This male alien was an operative of the True Way in 2372.

That year he was arrested on Deep Space 9 by Worf, and a number of Odo's deputies, after which he was taken to a holding cell. Worf summarized to Odo that the man in custody admitted that the True Way "provided him with an isolinear interface to access station systems," and that "he was attempting to use it to depressurize Shakaar's quarters by sabotaging the environmental controls." Worf continued "when he tried to access them, I traced the signal path back to him. He was operating out of an abandoned cargo hold on Level 31." (DS9: "Crossfire")
