The second one is
"Imperial Auditor" asked by "Kat"
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you,

Mr Tiny has another clue: The answer is not a minor character.

I continue with the somewhat cruel (it'll be obvious why this is cruel once you know who this is) sequence of quotes with:
You do what you have to do. You grow or go under. You have to believe he will grow.

This last sentence pointed me to Aral Vorkosigan, addressing the dying emperor.

My computer confirmed it.

In "Star Trek: Voyager" Annika Hansen was assimilated as "Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One", i.o.w. number seven in a group of nine.

Before Miles gave Taura her name, she was just number nine.

Taura used to be Nine of ... how many? And what happened to the others?

Precisely on the nail's head.
Over to you.

P.S. At least Jacksonians appear to have abandoned the habit of duodecimal packaging.

Not a bad try, but this character's personality is rather worse!
