Kira Taban was a Bajoran male who lived in the 24th century. He was the husband of Kira Meru and they had a daughter, Kira Nerys, and two sons, Kira Reon and Kira Pohl.


In the 2340s decade, he lived with his family at the Singha refugee camp.

In the year 2346, Meru was taken to be a "comfort woman" for the Cardassians on Terok Nor and in return the family received more rations. However, Taban never forgot his love for Meru and praised her for her courage. He told their children that she had remained in the Singha refugee camp, later claiming that she had died there. (DS9 episode: "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night")

When Taban took in Tir Remara after her family's death, she noticed the extra rations, and informed the resistance who instructed her to take the excess to give to those more needy. When Taban caught her in this act, she accused him of being a traitor and ran away. Subsequently, to avoid being hounded as collaborators, the Kiras were forced to give up their extra rations. (DS9 novel: A Stitch in Time)

Taban was killed by the Cardassians in the 2360s. (DS9 episode: "Ties of Blood and Water")
