Ro Gale was a Bajoran male who lived during the 24th century.

In the 2330s, he married Ro Talia and they had a daughter named Ro Laren in 2340. He died in 2347 during a Cardassian interrogation by Joer Varc of the Obsidian Order. Ro's daughter was forced to sit and watch as he was questioned and tortured to death, while begging for mercy. This ordeal was one of the reasons that Ro Laren rejected the Bajoran religion and ran away, subsequently joining Starfleet. (ST - Terok Nor novel: Night of the Wolves; TNG episodes: "Ensign Ro", "Conundrum"; DS9 novel: The Soul Key)

Gale played the belaklavion, and used his music to put Laren to sleep as a young girl. He told her that the instrument's song scared away monsters as she slept. When he died, Laren realized that even he couldn't keep all the monsters away. He was also known to make a very spicy hasperat. (TNG episode: "Preemptive Strike")
