Teal'c is a Jaffa warrior who betrayed his Goa'uld masters because he saw something in Colonel O'Neill that gave him the courage to fight to be free. He was First Prime of Goa'uld System Lord Apophis and is the son and father of Jaffa warriors. After proving his loyalty to Earth, he was allowed to join SG-1 and has since devoted his life to the cause of the Tau'ri. He is one of the leaders of the Jaffa rebellion and dreams of one day seeing all Jaffa free of the enslavement of false gods, with all Goa'uld destroyed. He carried an immature symbiote for many years, dependent on one as all Jaffa are, and enjoyed exceptional strength, health, and longevity as a result. He now uses a replacement drug instead, which makes him physically more vulnerable than before.

Teal'c has been greatly influenced by his time among humans, becoming more like them with each passing year. He now smiles easily, speaks frequently, and understands Earth culture very well, even if he doesn't always smoothly blend into it. Teal'c is a strong and loyal friend of deceptive depth and gentleness, a fierce warrior who has saved his friends many times and who would give his life for them without hesitation. At the same time, he is a hero to all Jaffa, having led them against all odds to near-complete victories over the Goa'uld who had enslaved them. While he endeavors to help the Free Jaffa Nation survive for the long term, his loyalty to Earth keeps him on SG-1, battling the Ori and other threats alongside his comrades.
