Character Biography

The Kull Warriors

With the Jaffa Rebellion going strong, Anubis needed a more faithful servant who knew no mercy and would maintain a one track mind in the fulfilling of his goal. The Kull Warrior's humanoid form was created in a laboratory where Anubis "grew" the body and gave life to its inanimate tissue with a device derived from the technology of the Ancients which he knew about from before his ascension. This Ancient device has been since referred to as the Telchak Device because it was the Goa'uld Telchak who used its technology to create the first sarcophagus. Once the warrior's body was animated, it was implanted with a Goa'uld symbiote which had been brainwashed to be completely loyal (7.11 "Evolution Part 1", 7.12 "Evolution Part 2").

Maj. Carter, Teal'c, Bra'tac, and Jacob Carter/Selmak infiltrated Anubis' base on Tartarus, home of the Kull Warriors, and destroyed the Goa'uld queen which was spawning all of the Kull Warriors' symbiotes, and Drs. Daniel Jackson and Bill Lee retrieved the Telchak Device from Honduras (7.12 "Evolution Part 2"). Jacob/Selmak and Carter devised a weapon based on the Telchak Device which counteracts the life-giving energy of the Kull Warriors and, in effect, kills them (7.16 "Death Knell").

After Anubis was defeated in his attack on Earth by Jack O'Neill's use of the Ancient's weapon from the outpost in Antarctica, Ba'al reprogrammed the Kull Warriors which remained to become loyal to him (7.22 "Lost City Part 2", 8.01 "New Order Part 1"). Anubis was not killed when his fleet was destroyed over Antarctica. He managed to transfer his energy form from one person to another until he made it through the stargate in the SGC. Unknowingly, he permitted his temporary human host and himself to be sent to an icy planet where the host died and entrapped him. (8.03 "Lockdown")

Because the Kull Warriors were a major threat, a group of SGC engineers, led by Dr. Bill Lee, used the Game Keeper's chairs to formulate a simulation training exercise to combat them in case they infiltrated the SGC base. The chair "learned" tactical maneuvers from Teal'c and soon developed a scenario with properties outside the original design. Whether or not the SGC continued to use the Game Keeper's chairs after this is not known. (8.06 "Avatar")

Somehow, Anubis escaped from his icy prison and rose in power once more. He managed to get to one of his bases of operation and coordinated the battle against the Replicators (under the command of Replicator Carter). The System Lord Ba'al acted as his lieutenant and combined his forces with Anubis' to fight the Replicator onslaught, but they were losing the battle rapidly. Because they were soon to be overcome, Ba'al secretly met with Gen. Jack O'Neill to coordinate an effort to destroy the Replicators. Anubis learned of Ba'al's betrayal and promised him that he would see the entire galaxy destroyed before he died. Anubis sent his entire army of Kull Warriors to the planet of Ba'al's betrayal, Dakara, to eliminate the Rebel Jaffa who had taken the temple there. Anubis, however, was locked into an eternal battle with the Ascended Being Oma Desala, and the Kull Warriors left behind without their master's guidance on Dakara were easily defeated. (8.16 "Reckoning Part 1", 8.17 "Reckoning Part 2", 8.18 "Threads")

At this point, there are most likely very few, if any, Kull Warriors which remain. If any of them have survived, then they will most likely die shortly because they were not bred for longevity.

The Kull Warrior's Armor

Because the armor of the Kull Warrior deflects bullets and absorbs energy blasts, the technology is highly prized. The SGC fitted Jacob Carter/Selmak with a dead Kull Warrior's suit to penetrate the force field protecting the stargate on Tartarus. The space pirate Vala used one of the suits to steal the Prometheus when it was on a rescue mission. Daniel Jackson used the outer armor of the same suit as protection against the energy weapon blasts of the buyers who intended to take the Prometheus in exchange for a large case of weapons grade naquadah. The armor's one-piece body suit prevents bullets from penetrating (only a trinium-tipped dart has been known to penetrate this body suit), but does not absorb energy blasts—that function is given to the hard, outer shell of the armor. (7.11 "Evolution Part 1", 7.12 "Evolution Part 2", 8.12 "Prometheus Unbound")

The Kull Warrior's Weapons

The Kull Warrior's energy weapons are attached on the top of their forearms and emit a red energy blast from above the wrist. They are activated from the Warrior's gloves. The energy blast leaves a circular burn wound and is able to penetrate the Goa'uld and Jaffa armor. (9.11 "Evolution Part 1")

The first Kull Warrior encounted by the SGC was met by Teal'c and Bra'tac on a planet where the minor Goa'uld system lords Tilgath and Ramius were meeting to form an alliance. A single Kull Warrior killed all of the Jaffa and Tilgath who had assembled there. Ramius escaped, but he was tracked down by another Kull Warrior and killed on his home planet. Both Tilgath and Ramius suffered multiple wounds to their chests. (7.11 "Evolution Part 1")

Col. Reynolds of SG-3 was the first SGC member to be injured by the Kull Warrior's weapon. He was injured in the left upper arm during the SGC's attempt to capture a Kull Warrior alive for interrogation. The teams were captured and Reynolds only received field medical aid, but he made a full recovery, even after an infection had set into the wound. (7.11 "Evolution Part 1")

Teal'c was also injured by a Warrior's weapon blast during a mission to Tartarus with Carter, Bra'tac, and Jacob Carter/Selmak. During their escape from Anubis' fortress to their cargo ship, a Warrior boarded the ship and shot his weapon at close range. As Teal'c dodged the blast, he was hit in his right side, but the wound was not severe and he made a full recovery. (7.12 "Evolution Part 2")

Daniel Jackson was injured in his left upper arm when Vala used it on him at extremely close range to torture information from him concerning the access codes to the navigational systems of the Prometheus. Vala used a small Goa'uld healing device on his smoldering wound and he made a full recovery. His shirt, however, sported a perfectly round hole as a reminder of his injury. (8.12 "Prometheus Unbound")
