Merruk was a Yaderan male who was part of the holographic village recreated by Rurigan after his original village was wiped out by the Jem'Hadar. In 2370, malfunctions in the hologenerator caused some of the village "inhabitants" to disappear, including Merruk's wife. At a town meeting Merruk and the rest of the village was informed that they were holograms, and that because of the malfunctions, they would cease to exist, unless the hologenerator was repaired. At first Merruk did not believe this, and told Colyus, who served as protector of the village, that he should be looking for his wife. Colyus pointed out that when they went to the edge of the valley, Merruk's hand disappeared as he tried to cross the boundary. After Dax and Odo repaired the hologenerator, Merruk and the rest of the village was restored. (DS9: "Shadowplay")
