|Out of universe information|
As leader of the Kelownan people, he approved the development and testing of the Kelownan Naquadria bomb, a weapon of mass destruction, which was eventually used by the Kelownan military in a preemptive strike against Kelowna's rival nations, which the government believed were planning to attack.
When the Kelownans learned of the military alliance between the Tirania Confederacy and the Andari Federation, Valis sent Dr. Kieran, Ambassador Dreylock and Commander Hale to Earth in the hopes of obtaining the Tau'ri's more advanced military technology to aid in their conflict with Kelowna's two rival nations. When SG-1 was sent to Langara, Valis welcomed Jonas Quinn home, although Quinn was considered a traitor after he defected to Earth and took Naquadria samples with him.
However, Valis merely needed Quinn to help his people secure Earth's technology, and offered to allow Jonas to return home permanently, where he would be reinstated to his position and have his betrayal forgiven. He also asked Quinn to keep an eye on his former mentor, Dr. Kieran, who had developed schizophrenia due to his exposure to Naquadria. (SG1: "Shadow Play")
When Anubis discovered Langara and its supply of Naquadria after probing Jonas Quinn's mind, First Minister Valis was executed by the occupying Jaffa. He was succeeded by Dreylock. (SG1: "Homecoming")
