Character Biography

The Ori took Chulak and at least two more Jaffa strongholds before the new leader of the Free Jaffa, Se'tak, took desperate action. All around him, his people were dying and their current level of technology was not effective against the Ori's massive warships. His small Council decided to use the weapon on Dakara against a planet known to be where an Ori warship had landed. They evacuated the majority of the Dakara population and used the weapon's energy wave through their Stargate to this planet. They killed thousands of humans in the matter of a few seconds. SG-1 was on the same planet when the wave struck, escaping in the nick of time because the Odyssey beamed them out when the wave was first detected.

Bra'tac was still on the High Council when Se'tak decided to use the weapon. The more he spoke against it, the more he alienated both himself and his cause. Bra'tac went to Stargate Command to ask for help, but by then, the weapon had already been used. General Landry went back to Dakara with Bra'tac in an attempt to talk Se'tak out of continued use of the weapon, but Se'tak's suspicious nature and disdain for the Tau'ri prevented him from making any headway. Se'tak's intelligence reports that SG-1 was on the Ori warship with his own patrols made him even more paranoid. When the Ori warship took off and destroyed three of the Jaffa's ha'tak in the planet's orbit, Se'tak had Landry and Bra'tac placed under guard. When he realized that the Ori warship had arrived at Dakara, Se'tak decided to use the weapon once more against it because he believed that the Tau'ri were there to destroy the weapon. The last wave from the weapon killed his own Jaffa patrols who were onboard the warship, but SG-1 was successfully beamed out by the Odyssey once again after Col. Emerson followed them there on a hunch that they were still onboard the warship when it unexpectedly took flight. (10.07 "Counterstrike")

The Ori warship was actually being flown by Adria, the Orici. She had great mental powers, as well as a personal shield which saved her from the deadly waves. After the wave hit her ship over Dakara, she opened fire on the weapon and the remainder of the planet. Se'tak and his men died inside the weapon's control room in a desperate attempt to fire it once more. Bra'tac and Landry escaped through the unguarded Stargate as Dakara fell. (10.07 "Counterstrike")

Adria destroyed Dakara completely and the Stargate was buried in the rubble. A scout was sent in a cargo ship to survey the damage — there were no suvivors. Bra'tac and Teal'c both mourned the loss of Dakara because its destruction pretty much guaranteed that the Free Jaffa Nation was no more. (10.07 "Counterstrike")
