  After Gorkon's assassination, his daughter Azetbur continued to sue for peace with the Federation, leading to her presiding over the successful treaty meeting at Camp Khitomer. (ST6)

  Klingon had no word for peacemaker until the Klingons encountered deaf mediator Riva of Ramatis III, who helped negotiate several treaties between the Klingons and the Federation. Worf didn't view it as a compliment. (TNG "Loud as a Whisper")
