Rom  Max Grodénchik

Quark's brother and father to Nog. Rom helped Quark run the bar at station Deep Space 9. Rom grew up on his homeworld Fernginar with his father Keldar, his mother Ishka, and his older brother Quark. Quark never treated him with much respect.
In 2373 Rom became attracted to Leeta, who worked as a dabo girl at Quark's bar. They became engaged later that year. Like any Ferengi, he expected his bride to sign the traditional Waiver of Property and Profit. When Leeta refused to agree to the waiver, Rom feared that she wanted to marry him only for his money. These fears were allayed when Leeta was still willing to marry Rom after he donated all of his profits to the Bajoran War Orphans Fund. Rom and Leeta were married on stardate 50975. The ceremony was performed by the Emissary, Benjamin Sisko and was attended by Nog and Quark.
Rom was active in the Bajoran resistance against the Cardassian and Dominion occupation of Deep Space 9 during the Dominion war. He was arrested by Cardassian authorities on stardate 51145 while attempting to sabotage the station's deflector array. Rom was a technological genius. He invented the self-replicating mines that prevented a major Dominion incursion into the Alpha Quadrant during the early days of the Dominion war. Rom's technical brilliance was matched by considerable wisdom in social matters. Unlike more conservative Ferengi citizens, Rom saw the sense in Zek's radical social reforms for the long-term progress of Ferengi culture. It was the vision that Zek recognized in 2375 when he appointed Rom to succeed him as the next grand nagus of the Ferengi Alliance.

Rom was first seen in "Emissary" (DS9).
