From The Stargate Omnipedia


Teal'c's former Jaffa master, teacher and friend, and former First Prime of Apophis and of Klorel. When Teal'c was a younger man serving in the Jaffa army of the Goa'uld System Lord Apophis, Bra'tac was his commander and a father figure to him. He was then First Prime of Apophis, a position Teal'c would later assume in his place.

Bra'tac was 133 years old in Season One of Stargate SG-1 (Bloodlines), 135 in Season Three (Into the Fire), and 137 in Season Five (Threshold). In fact, he seemed to be always bragging about his age.

Bra'tac lived on Chulak, the homeworld of Apophis's Jaffa recruits. Like his student Teal'c, he believed that the Goa'uld were false gods, and actively assisted SG-1 on matters related to Apophis and Teal'c's family. He was also a leader of the Jaffa resistance, a movement bent on freeing all Jaffa from Goa'uld enslavement.

Since barely surviving a Goa'uld attack on the Resistance and losing his larval Goa'uld symbiote, Bra'tac relied on regular doses of the symbiote-derived drug tretonin to live.
