Rak'nor is a Jaffa warrior from Chulak. His father, Delnor, had once been spared by Teal'c when Apophis had ordered his death. Delnor in turn had followed Bra'tac's rebellion and sought to give his son freedom from false gods by searing the Jaffa tattoo from Rak'nor's forehead. However, when his family was killed by Apophis, Rak'nor saved himself by declaring his loyalty to Apophis as his god.
Years later, Rak'nor betrayed Teal'c on Chulak and turned him over to Heru'ur, to be tortured by Terok, however, after witnessing Teal'c's conviction in the face of torture, Rak'nor had a change of heart. He rescued Teal'c and helped him to escape, eventually espousing Teal'c's belief in false gods, and joining the Jaffa Rebellion.
Rak'nor was a member of K'tano's Rebel army on Cal Mah, and he was among the Jaffa refugees who fled to the Alpha Site to continue the Jaffa Rebellion. When Bra'tac and Rya'c were taken prisoner in a death camp on an unknown Goa'uld world, Rak'nor assisted SG-1 to identify the planet as Erebus, and he accompanied SG-1 on the rescue mission. He and Teal'c were captured, beaten, and tortured, however he survived to help liberate the death camp of Erebus and to continue to fight for the Rebel Jaffa movement.
After the fall of the System Lords, Rak'nor helped to build the new Jaffa Nation. Like Teal'c, he feared Gerak's rise to power, and he cooperated with Teal'c and Bra'tac in establishing a new government of free Jaffa.
