Jeyal

Jeyal in 2372

Jeyal was the Tavnian husband of Betazoid ambassador Lwaxana Troi.

In 2372, Lwaxana became pregnant with Jeyal's child, and Jeyal insisted that his son be raised only by men as per Tavnian tradition. Lwaxana then left Jeyal and escaped to space station Deep Space 9, where she sought the assistance of Odo.

Jeyal later arrived at the station in pursuit of Lwaxana, demanding her return and that of his unborn son. Odo announced his intention to marry Lwaxana, thereby nullifying the marriage and making Odo the rightful guardian of the child. Because such an arrangement can only be accepted by Tavnian law if the groom proclaims his love convincingly and sincerely, Jeyal demanded to be present at the ceremony.

At the ceremony, Jeyal was not convinced by Odo's first attempts to proclaim his love for Lwaxana. However, Odo's words soon became more heartfelt, touching everyone in attendance, including Jeyal. Convinced that Odo's feelings for Lwaxana were sincere, Jeyal relinquished his claim on both Lwaxana and their son and returned home. Lwaxana subsequently returned to Betazed to give birth to her baby, and her marriage to Odo was also itself dissolved. (DS9: "The Muse")

Jeyal was played by actor Michael Ansara.
