Character's evolution

"Emancipation" (1997)

Three Shavadai are sent by Moughal to retrieve Abu who has been lost. When they eventually find him, they see the SG-1 with and discover that there is a woman (Samantha Carter) with them. Daniel Jackson notices that they probably are Mongols, and says that they are living. Yet the rider threaten the team with his sword, but Abu tells him to calm down. All the three horsemen put their weapons down when Moughal, who joined them, finally declares that the "woman" can live for she has saved another life.

They come back to the Shavadai village with SG-1.


  • When Abu is holding the three horsemen, he is yelling "Raga" twice to them. Yet by the intonation of Abu's voice, one doesn't know if it is one of the riders' name or a word in the Shavadai language used to calm down the riders. For this reason, this character's name remains unknown.
