Emissary : The title given to the person who would discover the Celestial Temple and speak with the Prophets, then unify the Bajoran people. Kai Opaka announced Commander Benjamin Sisko was the Emissary when he had just arrived at the Station. Akorem Laan briefly succeeded Sisko as the Emissary in 2372 when the Prophets transported him two centuries from his lifetime into the 24nd century. After reinstating the unpopular D'jarra caste system, Sisko challenged Akorem, and was ultimately vindicated by the Prophets themselves. Captain Sisko is now firmly established as the Emissary of Bajor. The one upon whom the hopes of a whole world fall.
D'jarra Caste : Ancient Bajorans lived their lives according to the d'jarra caste system. A Bajoran's social status and vocation was dictated by the d'jarra at birth and usually indicated in part within the design of the earring. Passed on for generations, the system was abandoned during the Occupation, when every Bajoran became subservient of the Cardassians.
Earring : The identity of Bajorans is intrinsically connected to their earring. The designs is often deeply connected to family lineage and the archaic d'jarra, but some religious figures and Militia officers are known to change their earrings to better adapt to their line of work. The earring is most often worn on the right ear, and is usually diamide-laced birithium in substance.Name : Bajoran custom places the family name before an individual name. Major Kira Nerys is therefore correctly addressed as Major Kira while her familiar name is Nerys. The titles of Bajoran rank also are tied to their religious rank. The Kai is the spiritual leader of Bajoran faithful, and a new Kai is named only when the preceding Kai dies or is incapacitated. The Vedek assembly of 112 influential spiritual leaders is lower than the Kai and acts as assistant and preacher to the masses. The political leadership of Bajor is given to the First Minister, who can be any Bajoran national chosen by democratic election. The current Provisional Government has been in place since the withdrawal of Cardassian forces.
