Played by veteran actor Frank Langella, Minister Jaro Essa was a member of the Bajoran Provisional government. His conspiring mind led him to create a terrorist group known as "The Circle." Minister Jaro appeared in the first three episodes of season two including "The Homecoming," "The Circle," and "The Siege." In his attempt to become Bajor's sole political leader, he entered into a pact with Vedek Winn such that the two would use their positions to assist each other gain full control. They would then return Bajor to the "Orthodox values" it once held so dear. This costume was subsequently slightly altered with the addition of an insert at the neckline for use by the supposed Federation ambassador in the season three episode "The Adversary."
