Traal was a tyrannical leader of the Norrb, who launched a number of military strikes against neighboring nations. In the aftermath of "the Pulse" in 2265, Traal endeavored to bring himself political respectibility, and joined the Zamestaad as Norrb Councillor.
He was a vocal opponent of the United Federation of Planets, often implying that they were directly responsible for the global disaster that befell their world. In an effort to drive the Federation from Mestiko, Traal allied himself with the Klingon Empire. However, when the Klingons threatened to destroy the Norrb Refugee Center as part of their anti-Federation plans, Traal broke ranks, sacrificing himself to save his people.
