Cordesh claimed to be a Tok'ra, but turned out to be a spy for the Goa'uld System Lords. He gave away the Tok'ra's location in their secret, underground base while SG-1 was making first contact in the episode, 2.11 "The Tok'ra Part 1". Jack revealed Cordesh's identity as a traitor after accidently discovering that Cordesh possessed a Goa'uld long range visual communications device. Cordesh attempted to escape by leaving his male host and finding refuge in a female host, but was discovered quickly because she was found to have the device. Since the Tok'ra were in dire need of new hosts, it is most likely that Cordesh killed the symbiote which was in the female host before taking her. The Tok'ra had a procedure which they used on the female host to separate the symbiote from her and spare her life. Cordesh's former male host committed suicide because he felt he was unworthy of living among the Tok'ra.
