The Apophis-sect Jaffa Maz'rai was an old friend and ally of Bra'tac. After the Jaffa rebellion succeeded, Maz'rai became an important member of the Jaffa High Council. An ally of Bra'tac, Maz'rai pressed vehemently for democracy, especially after Garak had nearly succeeded in swaying the Jaffa into the ranks of the Orii. Ba'al managed to get ahold of Maz'rai and use mind-control techniques to convince him to push for a delay on the Jaffa democracy referrendum. Bra'tac convinced Maz'rai that this mind-control had been used, and Maz'ri chose to undergo the right of Mal'Sharran to regain his own mind. He was ashamed that he'd been brainwashed, so he chose to undergo the right without assistance, resulting in his death.
