A child born from two Goa'uld hosts. This is considered forbidden by the Goa'uld System Lords because the Goa'uld genetic memory is passed down to the offspring, making the child a threat. (Goa'uld reproduce their own kind asexually.) The Harcesis possesses all the knowledge of the Goa'uld who fathered it.

SG-1 once sought the child of Apophis and Sha're on the legendary planet of Kheb, but the infant, Shifu, was found to be under the protection of the powerful ascended Ancient Oma Desala.

Some time later the child, artificially aged, appeared on Abydos. He was taken by SG-1 to Earth to be interrogated in an effort to find out what he knew about the Goa'uld and their technology. However, the child took the opportunity to show Daniel Jackson what could happen if the information the S.G.C. sought was given to them.
