Yelgrun 1

Yelgrun 1 was a low ranking Vorta in the Dominion. He died during a transporter accident.

Yelgrun 2

Yelgrun 2 was a Vorta overseer in the service of the Dominion in the 2370s. Although he was described as a "matter-of-fact" Vorta, he was one of few known Vorta musicians. (Star Trek CCG)

In 2374, he was sent to negotiate with a group of Ferengi for the safe return of Ishka, the paramour of Grand Nagus Zek, in exchange for Keevan, a Vorta who had been captured by Captain Benjamin Sisko several months earlier.

He agreed to meet Quark, Ishka's eldest son, and his team on the abandoned Cardassian space station, Empok Nor, but he brought along an entire platoon of Jem'Hadar soldiers 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).

The Ferengi had ideas other than a simple prisoner exchange, however. Yelgrun was tricked into releasing Ishka, and the two Jem'Hadar guards protecting him were killed. Yelgrun himself was captured and taken back to Deep Space 9 to be handed over to Starfleet. (DS9 episode: "The Magnificent Ferengi")

Yelgrun (or another clone) lead Dominion forces in the 25th century. (ST video game: Conquest)

Star Trek CCG refers to this character as Yelgren, a spelling with contradicts the script of the episode he is in. He is also labeled as a musician in ST:CCG, which is a subtle reference to the actor who portrays him, real-life musician Iggy Pop.

Yelgrun 3

Yelgrun 3 served throughout the Dominion War.

Yelgrun

Three different clones of Yelgrun served as a Vorta overseer for the Dominion in 2374. One month into the Dominion War, Yelgrun was part of an operation to weaken Federation and Klingon forces following the destruction of the Torros III shipyards. After the Federation had been led to believe a facility for breeding Jem'Hadar in the Alpha Quadrant was on a planetoid in the Tong Beak Nebula. Yelgrun and his troops were charged with observing the activities of the USS Lambda Paz, which was sent to verify the authenticity of this intelligence finding. Once that ship's reconnaissance was completed, Yelgrun contacted Weyoun to report that the Federation had taken the bait and request reinforcements.

During the Siege of Sector 21607, the Jem'Hadar under Yelgrun's command learned that he had lied to them about the existence of breeding facility on the planetoid. In response to this slight, First Teron'tokal and his subordinate troops killed Yelgrun. (Star Trek: Lambda Paz: " Revenge a Dish Best Served Cold")

A subsequent clone of Yelgrun was sent to negotiate with a group of Ferengi for the safe return of Ishka, the paramour of Grand Nagus Zek, in exchange for Keevan, a Vorta who had been captured by Starfleet several months earlier. Ultimately, Yelgrun was tricked into exchanging Ishka for the animated corpse of Keevan. His two Jem'Hadar were killed, and he was captured and turned over to Starfleet. He presumably activated his termination implant, as all Vorta were required to do if captured, since yet another clone of him activated soon afterward. (DS9: "The Magnificent Ferengi", Star Trek: Lambda Paz: The Tides of War, Part 1)

This next clone of Yelgrun probably underwent minor genetic alterations, so that he would be a little more cautious with species known for deceiving business clients, such as the Ferengi, or who regularly practiced piracy, such as the Sindareen.

Yelgurn had been sent to meet with Sindareen representative Tor Vot, who had provided information to the Vorta that would allow the Dominion to attack and invade Betazed. He told Tor Vot that, once the Dominion won the war, the Sindareen would become valued members of the Dominion, even stating that any enemy of the Federation's was friend of the Dominion's. These statements may have been lies to assure future cooperation from the Sindareen. (Star Trek: Lambda Paz: The Tides of War, Part 1)

Yelgrun was played by rock and roll icon Iggy Pop in DS9: "The Magnificent Ferengi".
