The Klingon who betrayed his people to the Romulans at the Khitomer outpost in 2346. Ja'rod transmitted secret Klingon defense access codes to the Romulans, making him responsible for the Khitomer massacre in which 4,000 Klingons died, including Ja'rod.

Years later, Ja'rod's son, High Council member Duras, attempted to cover up Ja'rod's crimes by falsifying evidence to implicate Mogh, Ja'rod's bitter political enemy, who was also killed at Khitomer. (Sins of the Father [TNG])
