Emblem of the Cardassian Union

Barkan Lokar was a Cardassian male, son of Draban Lokar and grandson of the legendary Turat Lokar. He attended the Bamarren Institute for State Intelligence where he was given the designation of One Charaban. As Alpha male of the Charaban group Barken had a lot of authority within the institute and often intimidated younger students with tests and his gruff voice. This early intimidation made Elim Garak quite wary of him in there earliest encounters but they soon warmed up to each other when Barkan offered Elim a role in helping to plan a mock battle against the third level students. With Garak’s help the competition was a great success but fearing Garak’s rise to power Barkan betrayed him, installing his cousin Nine Lubak in a position of power instead. In the same move he betrayed the leader of the opposition One Ramaklan who he had entered into a pact to have the competition end in a stale mate allowing them both to raise in power, he chose the extra glory of victory over keeping his word.

He went on to marry fellow Bamarran student Palandine and they had a daughter Kel. He took up a position as an administrator and later Vice Prefect in the Bajoran Occupational Government, his efficient programs skilfully stripping Bajor of its resources. He was an infamous womaniser, but these acts were overlooked in respect of his skilful services to the Union.

Later Barkan became aware of Elim Garak's involvement with the death of Procal Dukat and Elim and Palandine's affair and captured him in the hope of torturing information about the circumstances of Dukat's death and extracting revenge on him for the affair. The plan backfired and Elim killed Barkan.
