Nam was a Ferengi man.
Nam worked for Quark in the bar on Deep Space 9. In 2370, Quark had Nam participate in a poker tournament on the station, but kept the fact that Nam worked for him a secret. During a game, Nam drew the ire of Klar, an identity assumed by L'sthwan, who accused him of cheating. L'sthwan stabbed Nam, but Julian Bashir was able to save Nam's life. (DS9 novel: The Big Game)
