Prior (Ver Isca)

From The Stargate Omnipedia


A Prior of the Ori, who served on the planet of Ver Isca before joining the first wave of Ori warships to invade the Milky Way Galaxy through the Supergate. His look is distinctive among other Priors in that he has one eye missing, the socket covered over by scar tissue.

Like the other Priors his duty is two-fold. On the one hand he performs religious duties, preaching the word of Origin and leading converted populations in Prostration. On the other he serves the Orici, Adria (whose birth he was present for), as a sort of military general.

As is the case with most Priors nothing is known about the man before he entered into the Ori's service. He is presumably a native of their home galaxy. After he was exposed to the energy of the Ark of Truth he learned the true nature of the Ori he had worshiped for so long.
