He was on Terok Nor when three Bajorans were executed for attempting to assassinate Dukat. Benjamin Sisko contacted him when Sisko, Odo, and Elim Garak were reliving the past due to a telepathic link created by Odo. Belar was going to arrange passage off the station for the three. As Belar was speaking with Sisko, a bomb went off near Dukat. Belar fled and Sisko was arrested, along with Odo and Garak.
