Yelgrun was a Vorta overseer in the service of the Dominion 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 Starfleet several months earlier. Though outwardly affable, Yelgrun was also casually threatening when things didn't go his way.

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).

Yelgrun may have spent time forming somewhat of a friendship with Ishka. She was seen giving him some financial advice, and waved good bye to him during the prisoner exchange.

The Ferengi had ideas other than a simple prisoner exchange, however. Yelgrun was tricked into exchanging Ishka for Keevan's animated corpse, 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: "The Magnificent Ferengi")

Yelgrun was played by rock and roll icon Iggy Pop, who was sought out for the role by Ira Steven Behr, who was a fan. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion)
