Kira: (about Kai Winn) In a way, I feel sorry for her. She spends her whole life in service to the Prophets, and then one day, after years of self-sacrifice and commitment, she gets her reward - she's elected Kai. It should've been the greatest moment of her life.
Sisko: But my being the Emissary spoiled it for her.
Kira: The Kai has always been the spiritual leader of Bajor, but Winn has to share that position with you. And to make matters worse, you're an outsider - that's something she can never forgive you for.
