Mary Kay Adams as Grilka in Two Deep Space Nine Episodes “The House of Quark” & “Looking for par’Mach in all the Wrong Places”
After Kozak died in Quark’s in early 2371, Quark took credit for killing her husband, even though Kozak actually fell onto his own knife. She forced Quark to marry her so she could retain control of her house. Despite Grilka’s aversion to matters of finance, she allowed Quark to inspect her family ledgers where he discovered that D’Ghor, Kozak’s enemy, had been systematically attacking the House of Kozak for five years in order to weaken it.

Shannon Cochran as Sirella in Deep Space Nine Episode “You Are Cordially Invited…”
Sirella was of noble descent, tracing her maternal lineage back to Shenara, daughter of Emperor Reclaw of the Second Dynasty. However, her 23rd maternal grandmother was actually named Karana, a concubine. (DS9: “You Are Cordially Invited“)

Although she was completely different from the woman Martok thought he would marry (he thought of her as a mercurial, arrogant, prideful woman who didn’t have sex with him as much as he wanted to), his love for her was very deep. (DS9: “You Are Cordially Invited“)
A proud and headstrong woman, Sirella was originally opposed to the marriage between Worf and Jadzia Dax, believing that by allowing aliens to join her house would threaten their identity as Klingons. Since as mistress she had the duty of approving all marriages into the family, she came to Deep Space 9 to evaluate Dax’s worthiness. Sirella’s views led her to set Dax’s standards impossibly high, eventually causing a clash between them and to her canceling the wedding. Dax eventually begged her forgiveness, changing Sirella’s mind about her. Sirella later performed the wedding ceremony. (DS9: “You Are Cordially Invited“)
