Stargate References

Olokun was one of the seven System Lords meeting to discuss the attacks on them by an unknown rival Goa'uld. Each of the System Lords had suffered various losses, but no one knew the identity of their attacker. Osiris appeared at the meeting and informed the others that the attacks had been a show of power by Anubis, who was seeking admittance to the inner circle of the ruling Goa'uld. By offering to destroy Earth as his payment for joining their ranks, Olokun cast his vote in favor of allowing Anubis to regain his former position among the System Lords. (Summit/Last Stand)
