- —Daniel Jackson
Setesh (also called Set, Seti, Setekh, Sutekh, Sutech, Setech, Typhon, or simply Seth) was the brother of Osiris and Isis and a rebel Goa'uld. Seth was depicted as a strange (and mythological) creature, and the masked guards based on its likeness became the subject of many Jaffa jokes.
Several thousand years ago, while on Earth, he betrayed his brother and sister, removing them from their hosts and placing them in stasis jars. He attempted to kill Ra, but failed and went into hiding due to the fact that Ra had put a price on his head.
In 1999, the Tok'ra collected records of every past and present System Lord, but their intelligence on Seth ended after the burying of the Ancient Egyptian Stargate. Believing that he had been unable to escape Earth, Jacob Carter returned to seek SG-1's aid in locating him.
Dr. Daniel Jackson discovered that Seth had spent most of his time on Earth forming various cults, among them one where he impersonated the god Typhon in ancient Greece and a suicide cult in England near Stonehenge during the eighteenth century where his worshippers had died after slitting their own throats but Seth's body was never found. Daniel then tracked his most recent operation to a small group living just north of Seattle.
Despite being stranded on Earth, Seth retained an impressive cache of Goa'uld technology. He had enough Zat'nik'tels and Goa'uld grenades to supply a small army, a personal Kara kesh, as well as a set of transportation rings. He also had a significant supply of Nish'ta, which he used to brainwash people into serving him. He also worried about the System Lords and the Tok'ra trying to hunt him down, despite having spent 5,000 years isolated from any contact with either group.
SG-1, in league with the ATF, managed to infiltrate Seth's cult and break his influence over his followers. Seth attempted to escape, but Captain Samantha Carter used a Kara kesh to crush his midsection, resulting in Seth's death at long last. (SG1: "Seth")
