The Prophets as the Bajorans know them, Siblings to the Eav'oq, Wargods to the Aresians, or Wormhole aliens to Starfleet are a race of non-corporeal aliens who reside in the Bajoran wormhole outside of linear space time.
The Prophets and BajorEdit
The Prophets have been involved with affairs of the Bajoran people for millennia. The Bajora began the worship of the Prophets which soon spread over much of the planet to the point where the planet and people were named after the Bajora. (DS9 - Gateways short story: "Horn and Ivory")
The Prophets and the Pah-WraithsEdit
There existed another group of beings similar to the Prophets who were known as the Pah-wraiths. One group of Pah-wraiths were banished by the Prophets to the Fire Caves on Bajor while another group remained hidden within a second Red Wormhole. Both groups were unlike the Prophets as they were malevolent as well as cruel. (DS9 novel: Millennium)
