He agreed to meet Quark and his team on the abandoned Empok Nor, but he brought along an entire platoon of Jem'Hadar guards as protection against the six Ferengi. He quickly got annoyed by the Ferengi's attempts to stall, however. Nevertheless, he agreed to send all of his Jem'Hadar (save two guards) away from the station as a gesture of goodwill (and to even the score to keep the Dominion from getting the drop on the Ferengi).
