The most powerful and dangerous Goa’uld in history. Once a powerful System Lord, he was banished and destroyed by Ra and the others because his actions were deemed unspeakable, even among the Goa’uld. However, he managed to escape death by tricking Oma Desala into helping him to ascend. The Ancients after learning of his trickery forced him into a state between mortal existence and ascension. Using the knowledge of the Ancients, Anubis amassed unimaginable advanced technologies.
