"Faith, Nerys, faith"
– Fala's last words, 2375 ("Covenant")

Vedek Fala was a Bajoran religious teacher.

During the Occupation of Bajor, a young Kira Nerys was one of his students at the Singha refugee camp. During the closing days of the Occupation, Fala lost faith in the Prophets and became a follower of the Pah-wraiths and joined the cult that worshiped them.

In 2375, he traveled to Deep Space 9 and met with Kira Nerys. He kidnapped her and transported her to Empok Nor, where the cult resided, under the leadership of Dukat. Fala attempted to convince Kira that the Prophets had abandoned their people. He wanted Kira to join the cult, assuring her that Dukat was a changed man, but Kira would not hear of it.

Fearing that his leadership would soon be put into question and the members would revolt against him, Dukat planned a mass suicide of the cult, but was not going to commit suicide himself. Although Kira exposed his plan, Fala still carried out his own suicide, only saying "faith" when Kira asked him why. She would later wonder if he meant he never lost his faith, or if he felt betrayed by it. (DS9: "Covenant")

Fala was played by actor Norman Parker.
According to the script, Fala was pronounced as "FAW-luh". Additionally, he was described as "a Bajoran monk in his fifties" and that he was "a vigorous and energetic man".
