For the Tok'ra who briefly possessed Jack O'Neill, see Kanan


Athosian man, one of the few of his race who possess the gift of Wraith DNA. Kanaan is the partner of Teyla Emmagan and is the father of Torren Emmagan.

Kanaan and Teyla were childhood friends, and as adults the two began to develop a romance. They soon fell in love and conceived a child, but before Teyla could tell him Kanaan and the rest of the Athosians were abducted from their new settlement on New Athos by Michael.

Shortly after fathering Torren, Michael imprisoned the Athosian people in a secret base. He discovered Kanaan's gift, transformed him into a hybrid, and made him one of Michael's highest lieutenants.

Despite his transformation, Kanaan was still responsive to Teyla, and eventually helped her escape along with his newborn son. With the help of Jennifer Keller, Kanaan eventually reverted back to his former self. After this the family resided together in Atlantis.
