Imhotep was a minor Goa'uld from an insignificant planet. During the Third Dynasty of ancient Egypt, Imhotep was credited with being the first pyramid builder, and he was represented by a "V" symbol, signifying a pyramid. He was later deified by the ancient Egyptians, but among the Goa'uld he was never a System Lord and never achieved power of any kind. In an attempt to gain power over the System Lords, he took the persona of K'tano, former First Prime of Imhotep, and raised an army of Rebel Jaffa with the intention of overthrowing the System Lords and gaining power for himself. When his deception was exposed by Lord Yu, he was killed by Teal'c in the rite of joma secu, a ritual challenge for leadership.
