I think he's one of the better balanced, more realistic, and most hu-mon Star Trek characters, but I was not that fond of him during my first trip through DS9.
Agreed. But the role he sometimes played, "Outside alien with a unique cynical perspective of The Federation" (Garak also had some of this) might have been better served being given to a more charismatic character with that being his defining trait.
