Character Bio

Rya'c photo
Rya'c of Chulak is a Jaffa and the son of Teal'c and his late wife Drey'auc.

After Teal'c defected to Earth, Rya'c and his mother were forced to live as pariahs. At 12, Drey'auc begged the priests to give her son a symbiote, but Teal'c interrupted the ceremony since he didn't want his son to have a symbiote. Without a Goa'uld to provide an immune system, Rya'c became ill, until finally Teal'c gave him his own symbiote to save him. (SG1: "Bloodlines")

Afterwards, Drey'auc married Fro'tak to give her son a better life. Apophis captured Rya'c and by the time Teal'c returned, Apophis had brainwashed him into publicly denouncing his father. Because of something he said, Teal'c believed his son was only playing along. SG-1 rescued him and brought him and Drey'auc back to Earth. Once there, however, they discovered Rya'c really was brainwashed and conditioned to kill himself and everyone on Earth with special bioweapons stored in false teeth to be released once he was outside Cheyenne Mountain. The false teeth were removed, and the boy's body was examined for other weapons. Rya'c was imprisoned in an attempt to undo the brainwashing. Unfortunately, Teal'c had to resort to electro-convulsive therapy by shooting Rya'c with a zat to break the conditioning. Rya'c went to live with his mother in the Land of Light after that. (SG1: "Family")

Rya'c grew up under the tutelage of Bra'tac, who taught him the ways of the Jaffa. He was very angry at his father after Drey'auc died, and Teal'c allowed him to go on a mission to save Earth from Anubis. After Teal'c and Bra'tac were captured, he stole a glider and saved them. (SG1: "Redemption")

He was captured when he went with Bra'tac to Erebus, a Jaffa penal colony, to recruit more allies for the Jaffa rebellion. They were forced into hard labor. While ascended, Daniel Jackson saw them and the memory came back to him after he descended. SG-1 went to rescue them, but the rescue attempt was unsuccessful. Teal'c was captured and hurt, and Rya'c had to face the fact his father was vulnerable. Rya'c helped spread the word among the prisoners to revolt and the second rescue attempt was successful. (SG1: "Orpheus")

On a trip to Hak'tyl with Teal'c and Bra'tac to try to convince the female Jaffa to join the Rebellion, he fell in love with Kar'yn. Even though Teal'c was against the union at first, thinking they were both too young, Rya'c went along with his plans and the wedding finally took place with Teal'c's blessing. (SG1: "Sacrifices")
