Ambitions Joquer's main ambition is to expand his Casino resort chain to all corners of the galaxy.

He also has a secret, darker ambition to kill his maternal grandfather in a way that the murder can't be traced back to him.
Hobbies & Interests As a Ferengi, Joquer's primary hobby is making money. Any way to make another bar of latinum is what propels Joquer through any day.

Joquer is also fascinated by American football, curious at how humans were willing to beat the crap out of each other over a ball, and how furthermore, how many humans were sadistic enough to watch such carnage either live or televised. As such, he will load holoprograms based on the sport and spectate them.

Joquer also enjoys preparing fine Ferengi cuisine whilst listening to Ferengi opera.

Personal History Joquer was born on Ferenginar; the product of a rental agreement between his father and maternal grandfather. However, his mother; her body simply worn out from at least four previous rental agreements, died in childbirth, and Joquer's childhood and adolescence were punctuated by lawsuit after counter lawsuit as his father and maternal grandfather fought to decide who ripped off who.

Due to this constant legal back and forth, Joquer came to develop an understanding of Ferengi law before he really understood anything else. His first words were rumored to be "lawsuit"

However, as Joquer became a teenager, the already ugly legal battle took a dark turn when his maternal grandfather masterminded at least three hit attempts on his father, which eventually succeeded, but not before his father changed the conditions of his will, naming Joquer the heir to his casino resort company and personal profits.

As Joquer was already 15 by that time, there wasn't a damn thing his maternal grandfather could do to take his father's money. However, Chromus did attempt a leveraged buyout of the company. A buyout Joquer managed to prevent at great personal expense to himself when he bought back the remaining shares, effectively privatizing the company.

To make matters worse, shortly after Joquer prevented the buyout of now his company, a recession hit Fereginar, and profits dried up. The company would be bankrupt if Joquer did not put the company back on the Ferengi stock market. A decision that greatly pained Joquer to make.

However, as shares sold, it appeared that Chromus had lost interest in the company, as it appeared he had inflicted the damage he desired, causing Joquer to spend a great deal of his father's money in a foolish way. However, Joquer could not fully come to trust his maternal grandfather, and he knew that his profits and his company could never truly be safe until his maternal grandfather was dead.

Despite the tumultuous goings on behind the scenes, Joquer actually led the company out of the recession and back to a prestigious standing as one of the premier luxury casino resort chains in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

Following the conclusion of the Dominion War in 2375, Joquer became one of the pioneers of peace when he entered business talks with the Dominion to open casino resorts in the Gamma Quadrant, and by the early 2390s, Drumpf Intergalactic Hotels and Casinos was a household name in the Alpha, Beta, and Gamma Quadrants.

This left only one Quadrant of the galaxy that the company was not known in, and Joquer knew this was a major business opportunity. However, after consulting with investors, it was discovered that getting to the Delta Quadrant would be a logistical nightmare.

Undeterred, Joquer met up with other Ferengi businesspeople who had pursued business interests in the Delta Quadrant, and he was told time and again to take up a civilian contract aboard a Federation Starship bound for the Delta Quadrant. So, that's precisely what he did.
