A young African boy became Ra's host in 8,000 BC. He has been killed along with Ra in 1995.


In 8,000 BC, in North Africa a spacecraft landed near a village of primitives, with lights and thunder. Everybody but a young man ran away. This man approched the ship, and a bright blue light took him. Ra, a dying species known later as Goa'uld, took him as host (Stargate).

Character's evolution

Stargate (1995)

Along with Ra, his host is killed by a nuclear explosion aboard Ra's mothership in the Abydos orbit.

"Children of the Gods" (1997)

After his return on Earth after Apophis' incursion in the Stargate Command embarkation room, Daniel Jackson states that Ra took a young Egyptian boy as a host. According to him, it is possible that others aliens of Ra's race have done the same, and may be at this very moment.


  • Ra's host is credited as "Young Ra". This is obviously a mistake as he wasn't Ra yet before being taken as host. Unlike the movie, Semantic Stargate Wiki refers to him as "Ra's host".
  • There is inconsistency about the character; Daniel Jackson states that Ra's host was an Egyptian boy (SG1: "Children of the Gods"). Yet we can see that he was more like a young adult (Stargate). And Jackson stated that the Egyptian culture didn't exist 10,000 years ago, yet he refers to him a an Egyptian boy (Stargate, SG1: "Children of the Gods").
