is a shapeshifter
played by Rene Auberjonois
on the science fiction television
series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
. He was one of the hundred sent out by The Founders
long ago to explore the galaxy. He was found adrift in the Denorios Belt by a Bajoran
in 2356 who gave him his name, which derives from the Cardassian for "unknown specimen," odo ital
, literally, "nothing."
He later worked for the Cardassians during Occupation of Bajor aboard the orbiting Terok Nor ore-processing space station and later for the Bajorans/Federation aboard Deep Space Nine (the Federation name for Terok Nor).
He had a relationship with Kira Nerys until he left to rejoin The Great Link.
