Rurigan was a male Yaderan. He lived on Yadera Prime until it was conquered by the Dominion in 2340. Unhappy with the changes brought on by the Dominion, he decided to move to one of the planet's colonies, and created a holographic reproduction of his village complete with copies of his old friends.
In 2370, when Odo and Lieutenant Jadzia Dax landed on the planet, the holographic figures were disappearing due to a faulty transformer, which Dax was able to fix to restore Rurigan's world. (DS9: "Shadowplay")
