Legate Turrel.

Turrel was a male Cardassian who lived in the 24th century. In the 2370s, Turrel was a Legate and a member of the Cardassian Central Command.

In 2371, Vedek Bareil Antos and Legate Turrel began negotiations for a treaty between Bajor and Cardassia. After Bareil was injured in an accident on a Bajoran ship, Kai Winn Adami took Bareil's role and invited Legate Turrel to Deep Space 9 to continue the negotiations. Seizing on Winn's inexperience, Turrel demanded that all Cardassian property on Bajor would need to be returned in order for Cardassia to pay reparations to the Bajorans, even though Bareil had rejected this. The issue of Bajoran prisoners in Cardassian hands also proved to be controversial, as Turrel claimed there were no Bajorans in Cardassian custody, but that there were people who had been detained by the Cardassian Justice Ministry. Legate Turrel and Kai Winn later signed the treaty, which stunned the entire Alpha Quadrant. (DS9 episode: "Life Support")

Several days later, under the pretense of returning the Orb of Contemplation to the Bajorans, Legate Turrel was able to lure out members of a Maquis cell and several Cardassians who were helping them in stealing the orb. (DS9 - Prophecy and Change short story: "The Orb of Opportunity")
