Post news RSS All Goa'uld System Lords

The System Lords are the dozen or so of the ruling class in the Goa'uld hierarchy, who function as the leadership of the Goa'uld Empire. Usually the System Lords assume the persona of a god and rule many worlds by force through their armies of Jaffa warriors, and with a few Goa'uld, notably Ra, human warriors.

List of System Lords

Anubis, an ancient Goa'uld and once a very powerful System Lord, was banished by the other System Lords because of his unspeakable actions. In exile he tricked Oma Desala into helping him to ascend. The Others, however, forced him to a state of half-ascension after they discovered his true nature. Because of his ascended knowledge, Anubis amassed very advanced technologies, gathering strength for his returning to take revenge and to dominate the galaxy. However, when he was just a few steps from accomplishing his goals, Oma Desala attacked him, forcing him to enter a never ending duel.

Apophis was once an extremely powerful Goa'uld System Lord. The brother of the Supreme System Lord Ra, he originally commanded a minor fleet, but he grew in strength to command the power of multiple System Lords that had been killed during his reign, ultimately succeeding Ra as the dominant System Lord after his death. He held one human host in his life. His reign ended however, when the Tau'ri and the Tok'ra together managed to destroy his fleet in the Battle of the Vorash system. Apophis died in the aftermath at the hands of the Replicators.

Amaterasu was once a powerful Goa'uld System Lord. Amaterasu visited Stargate Command after Anubis' defeat to negotiate a new arrangement against Ba'al. The war against Ba'al goes poorly, and she and Yu rally their armies for a last stand. Her motherships are amongst the first to be infested by the Replicators. Amaterasu was not among the System Lords Ba'al sent a peace offering to, and her fate following the collapse of the Goa'uld Empire is unknown.

Ares was a Goa'uld System Lord grasping for power during Anubis' reign of terror. After Ba'al declared war on his fellow System Lords, Ares fled to his former planet, where the Tau'ri Harold Maybourne is King. SG-1 went to Maybourne's planet to warn them that Ares was on his way and to help them evacuate, but they ran into opposition from the villagers. In the meantime, Ares sent a patrol of Jaffa to the planet. SG-1 and the Jaffa clashed and the Jaffa was defeated. The final battle against Ares was fought by Brigadier General. Jack O'Neill using a Time Jumper that had been left on the planet by the Ancients long ago. A strategically-aimed Drone weapon penetrated Ares' Ha'tak's defense shield and destroyed the ship, killing Ares.

Ba'al was once a powerful Goa'uld System Lord and the Supreme Commander of the Goa'uld Empire. After the first fall of Anubis, Ba'al took control of Anubis' Kull warriors, making him the dominant Goa'uld in the galaxy. With his new powerful Kull army, he started a war against the other System Lords, driving them to the brink of defeat. The return of Anubis destroyed his plans, however, and the defeat at Dakara destroyed his fleet and army. After the fall of the Goa'uld, Ba'al was the only known surviving System Lord and became determined to rebuild his power base, infiltrating the Trust to do so. He was however killed by the Tau'ri in 2008.

Bastet was a member of the Goa'uld System Lords, Bastet did not come to power until the Second Goa'uld Dynasty collapsed. Uniting forces with the System Lord Kali, the two made a treaty with the Goa'uld Sobek. Then, at the celebratory feast, they moved against him. Rumor has it that Sobek's head still decorates Bastet's palace in Bubastis. Bastet, admitting to suffering heavy losses against Anubis, voted to allow the powerful Goa'uld back to his former position as a System Lord. Bastet was later killed when Ba'al gained control of the Kull warriors in 2005.

Camulus was a Goa'uld System Lord, who visits Stargate Command to negotiate a new arrangement against Ba'al. After the talks broke down, Camulus unexpectedly asked for asylum on Earth, revealing to Dr. Elizabeth Weir that his armies were one of the first to fall before Ba'al. Camulus later gave Brigadier General Jack O'Neill the location of a Zero Point Module, but SGC scientists found out that Camulus had tampered with it so that it would explode if ever used. Camulus agreed to take the ZPM to Ba'al in an attempt to assassinate him. However, O'Neill wasn't confident that Ba'al wouldn't discover the sabotage and so he secretly gave Camulus an already depleted ZPM instead. His fate after going into Ba'al's custody is unknown (although it is assumed that Ba'al killed him).

Cronus was one of the most influential of the System Lords. He was the one who banished Sokar and he was the mortal enemy of Apophis. Ronac was Cronus's First Prime; Cronus ordered him to fight an unwinnable battle against a more powerful Goa'uld. After his inevitable defeat, Cronus executed him by crushing his symbiote, causing its blood to mix with his in a slow and painful death. Cronus also accompanied Nirrti and Yu to Earth to negotiate Earth's entry into the Protected Planets Treaty.Two years later, Cronus was killed by a Teal'c-like android on the planet Juna.

Egeria was once a high ranking System Lord. She felt it was wrong to take the Tau'ri as hosts and, as she was a Queen, she gave birth to the Tok'ra who rebelled against the Supreme System Lord Ra 2,000 years ago. When Ra heard of her act, he took immediate action. She was imprisoned by Ra on the planet Pangar until the Pangarans, who used her progeny to produce Tretonin. Egeria sabotaged her offspring in the hopes of stopping the Pangarans, which led to a medical crisis after tretonin became widely used. After she was discovered by SG-1, the Tok'ra Kelmaa gave up her life so that her host can blend with Egeria. As her last act, Egeria gave the Pangarans the information needed to cure their people.

Hathor was once a System Lord, the Queen of Ra and mother of Heru'ur. After the Tau'ri rebellion, she was imprisoned in a Sarcophagus. After being freed by archaeologists, she traveled to Stargate Command and tried to take over the base. She was eventually defeated, and escaped through the Stargate. Hathor built a new army by brainwashing Jaffa, and captured all of SG-1 except Teal'c. She tried to extract information from them, but when this failed, she implanted a symbiote into Colonel Jack O'Neill, but he was saved by a Tok'ra. Hathor's base was eventually assaulted by the rebel Jaffa led by Teal'c, Bra'tac, and Major General George S. Hammond. Hathor was killed when O'Neill threw her unprotected into a cryogenic chamber.

Heru'ur was once a powerful System Lord, the son of Ra and Hathor. Heru'ur invaded Cimmeria after Thor's Hammer, an Asgard anti-Goa'uld device, was destroyed. SG-1 and Gairwyn contacted Thor, who arrived in his ship the Biliskner and removed Heru'ur's armies and ships, forcing Heru'ur to retreat through the Stargate. He traveled to Abydos to seize Amaunet, but was defeated there by SG-1 and again forced to escape. Heru'ur eventually planned an alliance with Apophis; the Tok'ra and SG-1 sabotaged their meeting in the Tobin minefield hoping to incite a war, not expecting that Apophis has brought a fleet of cloaked Ha'taks with him. Apophis destroys Heru'ur's ship and absorbed his forces.

Isis was an ancient System Lord. Isis' symbiote was found in a canopic jar that was among the Egyptian treasures from the ill-fated Stewart expedition. The seal on the canopic jar had been broken during transit, rendering the creature inside it dead. An autopsy was performed on the symbiote at Stargate Command, and further examination of the canopic jar revealed that it was designed to function as a stasis chamber, imprisoning the symbiote. presumably by Setesh, according to the Egyptian legend. Having found Isis in the Isis jar, it was presumed her companion, Osiris, was imprisoned similarly, however the Osiris jar listed among the artifacts was missing.

Kali was a System Lord. Kali is one of the System Lords in attendance at the Goa'uld Summit. Disguised as Lord Yu's Lo'tar, Dr. Daniel Jackson speaks of Kali and Bastet's having made a treaty with the fellow System Lord Sobek, only to move against him during the celebratory feast when Sobek let his guard down. Kali is among the majority who voted to allow Anubis back amongst the System Lords, even though he attacked one of her outposts on the planet Cerador.

Morrigan was a Goa'uld System Lord and Queen. Morrigan once had dominion over P3X-289. Historical records on the planet refer to the Stargate as the Gate of Mahg Mar, believed to have been of ritual significance in the worship of Morrigan. As a System Lord, Morrigan had a reputation for manipulation. Her servants were known to draw out strategic information in seemingly idle conversation. As one of the System Lords to attend the summit meeting in the Hassara System, Morrigan voted to allow Anubis's return to the rank of System Lord, however, as the forces of Anubis and of Ba'al sought domination over the System Lords, Morrigan's forces were overwhelmed and eventually capitulated.

Olokun. Not many details are known about the actions of Olokun. He may have had some connection with the Goa'uld Belus and the Ohnes. He was killed when Ba'al gained control of the Kull warriors.

Osiris Once a powerful System Lord among the Goa'uld, Osiris and his Queen Isis were betrayed by his brother Setesh. They were removed from their hosts and placed in stasis jars for thousands of years. Osiris was eventually awoken when Sarah Gardner opened the jar, and he took her as a host. Taking advantage of the "favorable conditions" following the deaths of Apophis and Cronus, Osiris built up quite a powerful army. Despite this, he was not able to return to the rank of System Lord, instead becoming a prominent Underlord of Anubis. He was eventually captured and his host was freed. His fate is unknown but it is unlikely that he was simply let go.

Ra was the the first System Lord to discover the Tau'ri. His mate was Hathor, by whom he had a son, Heru'ur, and his brother was Apophis. Ra was the most powerful of the System Lords. Despite the animosity System Lords feel for each other, Ra was recognized as the Supreme System Lord of the Goa'uld Empire , a title which made him nominal Emperor of the Goa'uld. Ra was finally killed by Colonel Jack O'Neill and Dr. Daniel Jackson who ringed an enhanced Nuclear warhead onboard his ship after the Abydonians rebelled and he was forced from the planet.

Sokar was a powerful System Lord well known for his cruel and sadistic nature. For a time, Sokar was ruler of the Goa'uld, until an alliance consisting of several other System Lords, including Ra, Apophis, and Cronus, banded together to defeat Sokar. He was believed destroyed, but somehow survived. In 1999, he made his presence known again among the System Lords, but he soon met his end when his ship was caught in the explosion of the planet Netu.

Yu-huang Shang Ti, or Yu was one of the oldest Goa'uld System Lords. He was part of the delegation that negotiated Earth's entry into the Asgard's Protected Planets Treaty, along with Cronus and Nirrti. He partially favored the treaty, as his interests no longer resided in that area of the Milky Way. His was the sole vote against allowing Anubis to return to the ranks of the System Lords. In the final years of his life, he began to suffer a loss of memory due to his extreme old age. He was killed by Replicator Carter.
