Ikat'ika oversaw the personal combat between the Jem'Hadar soldiers and the prisoners, held to educate Dominion troops on their enemies' tactics. He was responsible for maiming General Martok's eye in one of the fights. In 2373, Ikat'ika fought Lieutenant Commander Worf when he was held at the camp. Worf, already badly injured by previous fights, was losing but refused to yield the match, gaining Ikat'ika's respect, and demonstrating that Jem'Hadar had a form of honour. Ikat'ika himself yielded the match, stating that he could not defeat his opponent but merely kill him, which "no longer [held his] interest". Deyos then ordered the other Jem'Hadar to kill Ikat'ika and Worf. Ikat'ika was shot and vaporised but Worf was beamed away as his fellow prisoners made their escape.
