Or'Eq was the Brother of Rejac, the torchbearer. Upon his brother's death he declined his birthright as next in line for the ceremonious duty.
Like many of T'Kuvma's former followers, Or'Eq later found himself in service to General Kol. Or'Eq was serving on Kol's flagship, Sarcophagus, when it was attacked by the USS Discovery. Discovery was able to penetrate the Sarcophagus cloaking device and destroy the vessel, killing all aboard, including Kol and Or'Eq. (DSC episode: "Into the Forest I Go")
