Hamsan Dwich was born in Dakhur Province, Bajor, in 2369, shortly before the end of the Cardassian occupation. Prior to the occupation, the Hamsan family were prosperous members of the mi’tino caste, which primarily comprised merchants and landowners. Like the vast majority of Bajorans, however, they abandoned their D’jarra to unify in opposition to Cardassian rule. Dwich’s mother, an active member of the resistance, enlisted in the Bajoran militia after the occupation, while his father opened a small shop. He and his two older brothers Dals and Serif enjoyed a relatively peaceful and happy childhood, despite the domestic instability on Bajor and the subsequent Dominion War.

Dwich had long desired to devote his life to the service of others, and for much of his youth, he prepared to enter the clergy. After meeting with the ranjens at a monastery in Dakhur Province several times as a teenager, he was told that this pagh was meant to follow another path. This devastated him, and he felt lost for several years.

Dwich completed his compulsory education in 2387. The following year, Bajor was admitted to the Federation, and Dwich took advantage of the opportunities to live and work off-world. After a short period living on Casperia Prime, Dwich moved to the Sol system and settled on Luna, eventually training as an emergency medical technician and working for a hospital in Copernicus City. In 2395, he enlisted in Starfleet and after completing Academy training, was posted to Starbase 118. He transferred to Deep Space 224 in 2396, and was promoted to Crewman Second Class that year. In late 2397, he signed on for a tour of duty aboard the USS Resolution, working as an emergency medical technician in that ship’s sickbay.
