Gint was the first Ferengi Grand Nagus. Gint was the original author of the first aphorisms that would become the Rules of Acquisition upon which Ferengi society was based.

Gint's lifetime or when the Rules of Acquisition were first created was never mentioned on-screen. However, in "Little Green Men", it is stated that it "took [ten thousand years] to establish the Ferengi Alliance", which might imply Gint lived around 8000 BC, if he is considered the founder of the Alliance.

In 2372, Quark dreamt that he met Gint at the doorway to the Divine Treasury, where Gint told him that his life was more important than fulfilling a contract. Gint argued that the Rules were actually supposed to be nothing more than guideposts. (When asked why he decided to call them "Rules", Gint countered, "Would you buy a book called Suggestions of Acquisition?")

In his dream, Quark visualized Gint as resembling his brother Rom. (DS9: "Body Parts")

Gint was played by actor Max Grodénchik, who also played Rom.
Gint was first mentioned in Ira Steven Behr's book The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition.
According to the script, his name rhymed with lint. [1]
