Trevean, a male Teplan.

The Teplans are a humanoid species from the Gamma Quadrant.

By the 22nd century, the Teplans had built great cities and possessed the techonology to travel to other worlds. All that changed when they attempted to resist the Dominion, believing they would be able to. The Dominion had the Jem'Hadar infect the entire population with a disease that became known as the Quickening. The disease killed many Teplans and was also passed on to their children, although very few Teplans lived long enough to have children anyway.

In 2372, Julian Bashir and Jadzia Dax travelled to the Teplan homeworld, where Bashir became determined to find a cure. Bashir believed he was close to cure, before discovering that the electromagnetic field from his equipment was hastening the disease. While he did not find a cure, Bashir accidentally found a way to inoculate future Teplans against the Quickening, by allowing an antigen to be absorbed by a mother's placenta while a baby was still in the womb. After returning to Deep Space 9, Bashir continued his work to find a cure for those with the blight. (DS9 episode: "The Quickening")

In 2376, the crew of the Even Odds discovered Teplan folk art from the time before they were infected with the blight. (DS9 novel: Rising Son)

The Teplan were a humanoid species native to the Gamma Quadrant.

During the 22nd century the Teplan fought against the Dominion and lost. As punishment for their resistance the Dominion infected the population with the incurable Blight. (DS9: "The Quickening")

Due to the similarities between Humans and Teplans, Jasis initially considered the first Humans she saw to be Teplans but quickly dismissed the idea due them not showing any signs of the Blight. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "To Seek and to be Found")

In 2372, Doctor Julian Bashir created an antigen that when given to pregnant mothers resulted in their childern been born free of the blight giving future generations the chance to be free of the disease. (DS9: "The Quickening")
