Brel is a Trill symbiont, a symbiotic lifeform that existed with the humanoid Trill as a joined species. Each joining of Brel with a host creates a new, unique individual, but each individual also carried the memories of the previous hosts.
The Brel symbiont was born on Trill in 2165. As of 2386 the symbiont had been joined to five hosts, starting with Ortho Brel through its current host, Tobias Brel.
