Chalan Aroya was a Bajoran woman who owned the Celestial Cafe on Deep Space 9. She often watched Odo walk by her business on his patrol at precisely 0937.

In 2372, she visited Garak's Clothiers to obtain a new dress which she charged to her account. Elim Garak, hoping to set her up with Odo, called the security officer to his shop. Aroya told him that she had noticed him and invited the constable to stop by the cafe on his off hours. After she left, Garak called Odo's letting her go without making a date a crime. Despite being unable to understand humanoids' obsession with mating rituals, Odo did concede that Aroya was lovely.

Several days later, after Odo had been transformed into a humanoid by the Founders, Chalan visited him in Garak's again. She told him how sorry she was to hear of what had happened, adding that despite the challenges of adjusting, there were advantages to being humanoid. (DS9: "Broken Link")

In the first draft script of "Broken Link", this character's name was "Adelfi". The script (both the first draft and the final draft) described her as "an attractive Bajoran woman in her late thirties [....] She's wearing a sexy alluring dress, but there's nothing obvious or overstated about her like a dabo girl. She's a restauranteur, accessible but classy." Additionally, the final draft script gave the pronunciation of her name as "chuh-LAN uh-ROY-uh". [2]
