The Tok'ra symbiote
, and the mate of Jolinar of Malkshur
for over one hundred years. Lantash was very passionate in his ideas, often to the point of anger. He possessed a great love for Samantha Carter
, who had been the last host of Jolinar before she died. Over time, he came to love her as much as he had loved Jolinar.
Lantash and Martouf complimented each other in the way they handled situations. Martouf always carried a cooler head, but Lantash possessed a fire to attain their goals and to get the job done. But unbeknownst to Lantash, Martouf had become a za'tarc, an individual secretly transformed into a Goa'uld assassin, and was killed by Carter when his programming forced him to try and kill the President of the United States. However, Lantash survived. He was removed from the body and placed in a stasis container.
Nearly two years later, he was still very week and recovering on the Tok'ra's primary base on the planet Revanna. When the Goa'uld attacked and bombarded the base, his container was destroyed. To save both himself and the new S.G.C. recruit Lieutenant Elliot, he blended with the young man to keep them both alive. Lantash's knowledge became invaluable as both he (within Elliot) and SG-1 journeyed far from the Tok'ra base using underground tunnels, trying to avoid the invading forces.
Lantash and Elliot gave their lives to save the rest of the team when they realized that Lantash did not have the strength to repair Elliot's injuries and save their lives. Elliot / Lantash were given a vial of symbiote poison, powerful enough to eliminate the entire occupied force, and, presumably, used it on them to allow SG-1 and Jacob Carter to escape.
