The actor who played Garak in DS9 was Andrew Robinson. When he got the acting role, he wrote 200 pages of Garak's backstory. His use of this as a guide for his acting is probably a big reason why Garak's character has so much depth.
Most of that backstory was officially canonised by the head Trek writers. Robinson used it to write a novel, A Stitch in Time, in which Garak writes an autobiographical letter to Julian Bashir.

Right now, my home state of Kerala in southern India is a disaster zone: once-in-a-century rains have caused floods and mudslides everywhere; 13 out of 14 districts are in high alert. About a million people have been evacuated. About 350 people are estimated to be dead.
When this is all over, we will have a lot to rebuild. We have donated to Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund.

Hot Take: queer and/or trans creators being concerned with Building Brands on social media because it's how they make their living isn't actually a bad thing given the alternative is to go through a major corporation which will gatekeep them, ignore them, and try to control their Brand anyway. We get queer and trans-made art of all genres because social media and patreon and shit lets them get their work out there and earn a living off of it independently; which requires Maintaining A Brand
