|Full Name||Giria Palnin|
|Position||Glinn, Obsidian Order Expeditionary Force|
Giria Palnin was a taunting, sly and particularly vain Cardassian, holding the rank of Glinn within the Cardassian Obsidian Order. Generally very beautiful, she was well known for using it to her advantage, such as climbing the ranks of the military, and as a tool for confusing those she interrogated. However, her popularity towards the end of her reign had waned considerably, and as a result she had found herself stationed on the colony of Witherington alongside young and inexperienced troops. Listlessly natured, this brought out an irascible mean-streak, and ultimately made her less confident and more paranoid than usual.
Her tenure came to an end after an interrogation involving the characters Erin Reynolds (Vines), Caedan Nkai (Groove) and Genkos Sim (Wheels) failed. Automatically activated by a brawl taking place outside of the senate room within which the interrogation was happening, drones appeared from nowhere and began a violent assault on the entrance doors, causing Palnin to scream and duck for safety. She was besieged moments later, and taken out with a weapon by Quinn Reynolds (Shades).
