AMAUNET

Amaunet, Apophis's mate and queen, was the Goa'uld symbiote within the host body of Sha're. When Sha're carried the human child of Apophis, Amaunet remained dormant during the pregnancy to prevent a stillbirth. During that time, Sha're was able to partially access the genetic memories of her symbiote. The child she bore, the offspring of two Goa'uld hosts, is the Harsesis, forbidden among the Goa'uld. After the birth on Abydos, Amaunet once again took control of the host and returned to Apophis, however she later returned to Abydos, protected by an army of Jaffa and Horus Guards, to seek the child. She captured Abydonian slaves to hide her true purpose, and sent the child into hiding on Kheb to protect him from Heru'ur and the System Lords. When SG-1 intervened on P8X-873, Amaunet attempted to kill Daniel using a ribbon device, and Teal'c was forced to kill her in order to save Daniel's life.
