Ibudan was a Bajoran murderer who ran black market medical supplies through Terok Nor to Bajor during the Cardassian occupation. Ibudan had no regard for his fellow Bajorans, and was willing to gouge them, even if they were in need of medical supplies. While serving as security chief on Terok Nor, Constable Odo once saw Ibudan let a child die when the parents couldn't afford the drug that would have saved her life. Despite this, some Bajorans actually considered him a hero.
A few years prior to 2369, Ibudan killed a Cardassian officer who wanted a payoff to look the other way. He went to prison for murder but was released when the provisional government was established in 2369. Ibudan vowed vengeance on Odo for sending him to jail, and tried to frame him for murder, faking his own death using a clone of himself, hoping that Odo would be accused of the crime due to the lack of DNA evidence of anyone else having killed the clone. After Dr. Bashir found out that the corpse was a clone, Odo searched for Ibudan. He was masquerading as a traveler named Lamonay S. Odo captured him and Ibudan was arrested for killing his clone. His legacy would continue with the creation of a second clone, inadvertently created by Bashir. (DS9: "A Man Alone")
