Yeln was a resident of the Elemspur Detention Center during the Cardassian Occupation.

He claimed to remember sharing a cell with Kira Nerys and two others at Elemspur, although this later proved to be false. Shortly thereafter, he disappeared, making it likely he was a Cardassian agent. He was suspected of changing the records of the detention center, making it look like Kira had once been an inmate. (DS9: "Second Skin")

Yeln was played by Tony Papenfuss. His name comes from the script.
Yeln's given name was revealed to be "Arvam" in the DS9 novel Fearful Symmetry. In the novel Ro Laren discovers that Yeln had died in 2361 and Kira confirmed this in an orb experience.
