Re: Absolute worst character in DS9 History: Ezri Dax

I don't think we have any basis for discussing the psychology of the symbiont itself. At best, it's a vessel for the preservation of the personalities it has passed through. The key references are always to the number of hosts, the number of lifetimes, never the life of experiences of the symbiont before joining. Indeed, Invasive Procedures suggests that the humanoid personalities, if not the current humanoid host, can dominate the relationship over the non-humanoid host: Verad clearly overwhelms Dax. (Unless you are trying to argue that Dax was suicidal, which would seem inconceivable.)
