The Breen are a mystery race – very few people know exactly what they look like. Non-aligned until 2373, the Breen joined the Dominion War on the side of the Founders, and gradually replaced the Cardassians as the Founders’ primary Alpha Quadrant ally. The Breen are universally regarded as deceitful and treacherous; a Romulan proverb advises ‘Never turn your back on a Breen.’

Although the Breen are never seen without their refrigerated environmental suits, it is reported by surviving senior Cardassian personnel that according to Weyoun – a Vorta aide to the female Founder who enlisted their aide in the war – the refrigeration suits are unnecessary, the Breen being perfectly capable of existing in a temperate environment. Why they maintain this ruse is unknown.

Example Names

Breen naming conventions remain unknown. The Breen do not share their personal names – if they indeed have them – with non-Breen. Instead, they insist they be called by their roles: ‘diplomat’, ‘pilot’, etc. Some interstellar Breen smugglers and criminals adopt titles or monikers to interact with their clients.
