Arandis was a Risian woman. She was a close friend of Curzon Dax and on his last trip to Risa in 2367 he died while seeking jamaharon with her.

She was reunited with Jadzia Dax in 2373, when she visited Risa with Worf. By this time she had been promoted to chief facilitator for the entire Temtibi Lagoon. Dax' history with Arandis created a great deal of tension between Jadzia and Worf. (DS9: "Let He Who Is Without Sin...")

Arandis was played by Vanessa Williams. Answering a question as to why Williams' character was not given a more prominent role, Ronald D. Moore stated: "The role was there before Vanessa. We had the role already written and the show was in pre-production when suddenly we learned of her interest in the show and her willingness to do the part as it was written." (AOL chat, 1997)
According to the script, her name was pronounced as "uh-RON-dis". [1]
"Arandis" was included as a possible name for a baby in The Complete Idiot's Guide to 30,000 Baby Names and The Complete Idiot's Guide to 40,000 Baby Names.
