Not my place - the concept was already introduced and named in Andrew J Robinson's short story "The Calling," published in the DS9: Prophecy and Change collection from 2003.
Forgot about that, I stand corrected.
That just shows the level of detail going on here in staying faithful to the show/novels. It's nice seeing the blanks filled in and the characters acting 'in character'. Love showing the fact that also while Garak has become 'warm and fuzzier' over time, now that he is on Cardassia he is more free to act on his darker capabilities as well
