Unknown (possibly Lantea)

- "If we interfere, we are no better than the Ori."
- —Morgan Le Fay
She designed a computer program to teach young Lanteans about their history, using the information in the database. She was one of those who went back to Earth when the Ancient Council decided to sink Atlantis and abandon the Pegasus galaxy. On Earth, Ganos secluded herself in meditation, and ascended. When Merlin descended himself and retained his knowledge and powers to create a weapon which could kill the Ori, Morgan was sent by the Others to observe him—and if necessary, stop him. Locating the Sangraal, she destroyed it. However, Morgan later came to believe Merlin was right about the threat the Ori posed. She captured Merlin, placed him in stasis, and placed him on a planet between four others: Camelot, Castiana, Sahal, and Vagonbrei, as well as setting up tests for those who came searching for it. (SG1: "Morpheus", "The Pegasus Project", "The Quest, Part 1", "The Quest, Part 2")
When Dr. Daniel Jackson used her learning program to locate two possible planets that might have the weapon, she revealed their Ancient names and Stargate addresses. Morgan gave herself away when she acted unlike a computer hologram by addressing Daniel directly to take the three addresses and go. Daniel realized that she was now an ascended being who was posing as the hologram she had created thousands of years previously and was attempting to help them. Daniel begged for more help and she was about to tell them, but the Others stopped her as she would have been breaking their highest law: to never interfere with the lower planes. (SG1: "The Pegasus Project")
Morgan was banished by the Others for this, but was able to remain as an ascended being. She sent visions of the Ark of Truth to Dr. Daniel Jackson, and followed the Odyssey through the Supergate to the Alteran Home Galaxy, where she was able to act more freely as the Ancients were not there. She healed Teal'c when he was wounded and traveling to the Ori palace, showed Vala Mal Doran the symbols to activate the Ark, distracted Adria and gave Daniel support when he was being tortured. She explained that she believed that SG-1 deserved the Ancients' help as they saved them by destroying the Ori- although this left the now-Ascended Adria channeling the full power of their worshippers that had previously been divided among the entire race-, but there was only so much she could do on her own. She informed Daniel that he need only use the Ark on one Prior to spread the truth, but disappeared when Teal'c arrived before she could explain more. After the Doci was exposed to the Ark and all the people of the Ori galaxy learned the truth, severely reducing her power, Adria threatened retribution on the team before Morgan entered the room to confront Adria. Adria claimed that Morgan was no match for her but Morgan smugly informed her "I am now" and engaged Adria in an eternal Ascended battle, removing Adria as a threat forever. Daniel was later able to finish the Ori threat by using the Ark on a Prior in the Milky Way, spreading the truth there too. (SG1: "The Ark of Truth")
While trying to find a solution to the Vanir genetic degradation problem, Daniel suggests that the Ascended rules may allow the Ascended Asgard Ran to help somewhat as long as she doesn't act directly without descending, using Morgan as an example. Daniel mentions how she was allowed to tell them the Stargate addresses, but when she went to tell them exactly where to look, she was stopped and they don't know how she was punished. Daniel suggests that this means that as long as an Ascended being doesn't interfere directly as Morgan had tried to do, the Others won't interfere. (ATL: "Stargate Atlantis: The Third Path")
Behind the scenes
- On Joseph Mallozzi's blog, he commented that Morgan Le Fay along with Adria were both locked in perpetual combat similar to one between Oma Desala and Anubis.
- In Stargate Atlantis: The Third Path, while telling the Vanir about how Morgan was allowed to help them somewhat, Daniel incorrectly tells them that it is unknown how she was punished afterwards as she told him that she was banished by the Others for her actions.
