Re: TF: Revelation and Dust by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)
Ishan Chaye was a victim of the Occupation. Documented as such. If the President pro tempore is indeed a relative as suspected, it explains some of his behaviour.
I don't know. I can definitely see him being bitter towards Cardassia, both for the Occupation and for Dukat ordering his brother's execution. But why try to disrupt Federation politics by participating in the murder of a legitimately elected leader like Nan Bacco? I don't see the point unless Ishan's mind is so warped he thinks anyone who short-changes Bajor (perhaps by allying with the Cardassians) is an enemy.
