Baa! I'm a sheep.

I've hit a bit of a block writing a combination of cardinal and contrary virtues for Quark. At this point, I think I've settled on Faith, Generosity, Chastity, Patience, Kindness, Fortitude, and Humility. These snippets will cover, respectively:

Quark's relationship with his father (I find it interesting that Quark seems to have a better opinion of Keldar than either Rom or Ishka);

Quark during the Cardassian Occupation;

Quark's relationship with Natima;

Quark's, ahem, "suffering" during Facets *g*;

Quark on Odo and his romantic troubles (inspired by selenak's comments on Crossfire);

Quark on the mountain in The Ascent;

and Quark's feelings on the Dominion War (which will probably be set around The Siege of AR-558).

In any case, while using this block-induced break to surf the internet, I notice that all of my lj friends seem to be taking the same quiz. All right then, I'm game:

That's actually amazingly close. *g*

Okay, now you've got me slobbering

Which is a very undignified state. All are excellent choices. Let me guess - Quark believes/needs to believe in his father as an example of Ferengi virtues when Keldar clearly wasn't?

What I find interesting, too, is that Ishka says Rom is like his father (and Quark like her, which is why they frequently clash). Given Quark's outburst about having to "protect" Rom near the end of Bar Association, as well as his entire attitude towards Rom with its mixture of contempt and affection, both real.

Quark and his family

Precisely.

Given Quark's outburst about having to "protect" Rom near the end of Bar Association, as well as his entire attitude towards Rom with its mixture of contempt and affection, both real.

And very similar to Quark's relationship with Nog, which will be touched on in "Humility". Quark did everything he could to discourage Nog from joining Starfleet- he even rigged Nog's spatial orientation qualifying test- but as The Siege of AR-558 clearly showed, Quark was sincerely concerned for his nephew's safety as well.
