|Previous Assignment:||Leader of the Cardassian Union|
|Office Held:||Leader of the Cardassian Union|
|Preceded By:||Skrain Dukat|
Corat Damar was a Cardassian male and a long time friend and subordinate officer of Skrain Dukat. Damar later succeeded Dukat as leader of the Cardassian Union and led the rebellion against the Dominion to free Cardassia.
In 2346, Third-Tier Gil Damar was assigned to Bajor, where the newly appointed prefect, Dukat, made the officer his assistant. At this time, Damar was engaged to a journalist for the Cardassian Information Service named Veja Ketan. Dukat felt that Damar was an intelligent soldier, although he was not always aware of the subtleties of Cardassian politics. Damar, in turn, believed he could learn all he needed to be a great officer from Dukat, although he disapproved of his superior's use of Bajoran "comfort women".
In 2348, Damar's fiancée and her fellow correspondent Natima Lang were caught in a cave-in, along with a Bajoran Resistance fighter, Aro Seefa, who had mistaken them for military personnel. Damar launched a rescue attempt, killing Aro upon finding Ketan unconscious. He refused to leave her bedside until she regained consciousness, disobeying direct orders from Dukat to return to Terok Nor. Because Ketan was now barren, however, he broke the engagement. Upon Damar's return to Terok Nor, Dukat informed him he had been reassigned to the Federation border, partly because Lang's account of the rescue, including the unnecessary death of Aro, had caused embarrassment for the military.

Fighting the KlingonsEdit
The following year, Damar joined Dukat on taking Benjamin Sisko, Worf, Odo and Miles O'Brien to Ty'Gokor. Damar expressed his opinion that an orbital bombardment of Klingon High Command headquarters would be better than attempting to infiltrate it. (DS9 episode: "Apocalypse Rising")
Damar worked on a way to disable the minefield protecting the mouth of the Bajoran wormhole to allow Dominion reinforcements to enter the Alpha Quadrant. (DS9 episodes: "Favor the Bold", "Sacrifice of Angels")
Later in 2374, Damar sent several ships to fight at the Romulan front and deployed several hundred orbital weapon platforms to protect the Chin'toka system. Unknown to Damar was the fact that the Federation Alliance had selected Chin'toka as the first target in their invasion of Cardassia. The Allies took heavy losses from the platforms, although they were able to deactivate them and take the system. (DS9 episode: "Tears of the Prophets")
Over time, Damar became disillusioned with the Cardassian-Dominion Alliance. Damar soon began drinking heavily when he realized that he was no more than a puppet for Weyoun and the Founders. (DS9 episodes: "Penumbra", "'Til Death Do Us Part", "Strange Bedfellows")
In 2375, after the Breen allied themselves with the Dominion and dealt the Federation Alliance forces a crushing defeat, Damar came to feel that without firing a shot the Dominion had conquered the Cardassian people. He defected from the Dominion, and urged the Cardassian people to rise up against them. With several loyal Guls from the Cardassian military, Damar formed the Cardassian Liberation Front. (DS9 episodes: "The Changing Face of Evil", "When It Rains...")
Aided by Kira Nerys, Elim Garak, and Odo, Damar began attacking several Dominion strongholds and bases. This had a heavy personal price for Damar, as his wife and children were killed by the Dominion in retaliation. (DS9 episode: "Tacking Into the Wind")
Eventually, the entire Cardassian military turned on the Dominion, and the Founders were forced to accept surrender. This however came at a terrible price, with the Jem'Hadar killing over 800 million Cardassians before being ordered to stand down. Damar was shot and killed while leading the Cardassian assault against the Dominion Headquarters. His last orders were to keep going, no matter the cost. (DS9 episodes: "The Dogs of War", "What You Leave Behind")
In some German DS9 episodes, Damar is being called Dumar for some reason but it changed in later German episodes.
