Per'sus was the High Councillor of the Tok'ra and was making his first journey to Earth to sign an official treaty that outlined the new alliance between the Tok'ra and Tau'ri in the fight against the Goa'uld. He was the target of Goa'uld-programmed assassins called zatarcs, who were either Tok'ra operatives or humans of Earth. When he entered the conference chamber on Vorash, Maj. Graham of SG-14 attempted to kill him. Graham was a zatarc, as well as the beloved Tok'ra Martouf, who attempted to kill Per'sus once he was on Earth with the President of the United States (actually a stand-in was used as a security precaution). Graham and Martouf both died as a result of their programming, but Per'sus lived to sign the treaty which was primarily the work of Daniel Jackson.
