The Ori were Ascended Beings who manifested themselves in a wall of fire in the City of the Gods on the Plains of Celestis in a far galaxy, the original home of the Ancients (who were called the Altera when they left that galaxy and made a new home in the Milky Way). The Ori claimed to be gods and the creators of all humanity and were served by those who follow their religion, called "Origin", which was put forth in The Book of Origin. The Ori called the Alterans "evil" because they have kept the human life of the Milky Way a secret and withheld the "truth of the universe" from them. The Ori found out about humanity's existence in the Milky Way and sent their representatives, advanced humans to whom the Ori had given great powers, to show the Path to Enlightenment. If humans of the Milky Way rejected Origin, they were destroyed. Two years after meeting the Ori, SG-1 defeated them by using Alteran and Ancient technology. The Ori were introduced in the episodes, 9.02 "Avalon Part 2" and 9.03 "Origin Part 3", and were defeated in 10.14 "The Shroud" and Stargate: The Ark of Truth.
