Just before the Battle of Cardassia, Pran told the Founder that he wanted the Breen warships to be the first to attack the Federation Alliance ships. The Founder, worried about the reaction of the Jem'Hadar, convinced him to stand with the Jem'Hadar. Pran later left Dominion Headquarters to take command of the Dominion forces that were falling back to Cardassia. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind")

The RPG The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon, published by Last Unicorn Games after they had lost their Star Trek license, states that Pran was the Thot from the state of Bota Rez. He rose to power through dynastic succession from his father after the "accidental" death of his two older brothers. Aggressive and ruthless, Pran kept his forces in fighting shape by resorting to piracy, often leading the raids himself.
And that Pran was one of the first Breen to deal with the Dominion forging strong business ties. His was a strong voice for an alliance. He even maneuvered into being nominated supreme commander of the military forces or tha'thot. (Last Unicorn RPG: The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)
