THILANA

Thilana is the leader of the medieval village of P9C-882. She remembered the Goa'uld rule of her planet, and when a Prior visited her world she refused to submit to the Ori. She graciously welcomed SG-1 to her village and sought their help against the Ori, willingly cooperating with their plan to hide the village from the Prior by taking it out of phase. Although the plan initially failed, Thilana continued to trust the visitors, and with courage and dignity she stood up to the Ori warriors, refusing to submit to false gods or to return to slavery. Even when Matar and others of her village insisted that she sacrifice Teal'c to the invaders and embrace Origin for the sake of her people, she convinced them that it is better to die in noble peace and truth of spirit than to sacrifice an innocent life. The Prior ordered the destruction of the village, but Carter and Mitchell succeeded in activating Merlin's device to take the village out of phase, and the town was spared.
