Asexual (male personality)
2000 (killed by Apophis)
|Out of universe information|
- "He is a very powerful System Lord. Much feared, even among Goa'uld. He is a conqueror. He eliminates all who dare tread in his shadow. Including other Goa'uld."
- "Nice pedigree."
- —Jack O'Neill after learning that Heru'ur's parents were Ra and Hathor
Unlike the other System Lords, Heru'ur personally led his troops into battle, fighting on the front lines alongside them.
After his father's death, he took control of most of his empire, and became one of the dominant System Lords. The Tau'ri first encountered him when he tried to conquer Cimmeria. SG-1 was able to contact Thor, who defeated his forces; however, Heru'ur himself was able to escape through the Stargate. (SG1: "Thor's Chariot")
For a long time, Heru'ur was a rival of Apophis. When he learned Apophis and Amaunet had sired a Harcesis child, Heru'ur attempted to take the child. However, Teal'c and Dr. Daniel Jackson were able to trick him into thinking Apophis had the child, while manipulating Apophis and Amaunet into thinking Heru'ur had stolen the child. Heru'ur nearly killed Daniel Jackson, but was forced to retreat when Colonel Jack O'Neill damaged his hand device by throwing a knife through it (and Heru'ur's hand). (SG1: "Secrets")
For generations, Heru'ur controlled the planet Juna. At some point before his death in 2000, SG-1 arrived and informed the people they no longer had to worship Heru'ur. After winning a rebellion against Heru'ur's Jaffa, they instructed them to bury the Stargate. (SG1: "Double Jeopardy")
Eventually, Heru'ur sought out Apophis to make an alliance to control the Goa'uld Empire. As a sign of friendship, Heru'ur offered Apophis Teal'c, who had been captured by Heru'ur's Jaffa. SG-1 and Jacob Carter sabotaged the alliance between them, hoping it would result in a war that would decimate both System Lords forces. However, Apophis had brought a cloaked fleet to destroy Heru'ur's Ha'tak. Apophis easily absorbed Heru'ur's forces into his own. (SG1: "The Serpent's Venom")
Behind the scenesEdit
- Gerak mentioned that one Karrok was First Prime of Horus. It is possible that Heru'ur and Horus are one and the same (Heru'ur means "Horus the Elder"). Also, the Tagrean Tarek Solamon referred to Heru'ur as Horus after he abandoned Tagrea. Interestingly, he is one of only two Goa'uld who wore golden Jaffa armor and actively entered combat alongside his troops, the other being his nemesis (and paternal uncle) Apophis. (SG1: "Memento", "Origin")
- Douglas H. Arthurs previously played Kah'l in the Stargate SG-1 episode "The Serpent's Lair".
