Shortly after being joined, Torias Dax married Nilani Kahn, whom he had met when both were initiates.
Torias was a pilot, and died in a shuttlecraft accident in 2284. Records of the Trill Symbiosis Commission, however, said Torias survived in a comatose state an additional six months, a falsehood meant to cover-up the subsequent joining of Dax to Joran. (DS9 episodes: "Equilibrium", "Facets", "Rejoined")
- There are two contradictory non-canon stories detailing Torias' shuttle accident: "Infinity" in The Lives of Dax, and "Trek" in Strange New Worlds 8.
