Athosian Council

"We move our hunting camps around. We try to teach our children not to live in fear, but it is hard."

The Athosians are a race of humans from Athos.


Some Athosians can sense the Wraith and have Wraith DNA in their genetic makeup which can allow them to connect to a Wraith mind. (SGA: "The Gift") The Athosians have some technology such as the fire lighter. They drink a stout tea before each dawn to brace for the coming day. (SGA: "Rising") They have prayers to the ancestors and a ritual prayer performed before death. (SGA: "Hide and Seek", "Thirty-Eight Minutes") When an Athosian dies of natural causes, a rare thing among them, they perform the Ring Ceremony to farewell the dead. (SGA: "Critical Mass") They have a Memorial tea ceremony that is performed for someone on the anniversary of their loved one's death. (SGA: "Tao of Rodney") They are led by the Athosian Council. (SGA: "McKay And Mrs. Miller") Athosians have a day of rest every four nights. (SGA: "Sunday")


The Athosians were created by the Lanteans but when they abandoned Athos, the Athosians were left to themselves. For thousands of years they underwent cullings by the Wraith. (SGA: "Rising") Some people joined the Athosians, introducing Wraith DNA into their genes. (SGA: "The Gift") In 2004 they met the Atlantis expedition and after an attack by the Wraith, the survivors went to Atlantis. (SGA: "Rising") When a landmass was discovered on Lantea, the Athosians volunteered to move there to explore it and plant crops. They also wanted to move their to prove their innocence when they were believed to have a spy among them providing information to the Wraith. (SGA: "Suspicion") The Athosians had to evacuate to Atlantis and then to Manaria when a Hurricane threatened the mainland and Atlantis. They later returned to rebuild. (SGA: "The Storm", "The Eye") They were again told to pack up and be moved to Atlantis and offworld when the Wraith were heading towards Lantea. (SGA: "The Gift")

Some Athosians returned to the city to help defend it from the Wraith. (SGA: "The Siege, Part 2") A Hive ship came to Lantea and the Athosians had to evacuate to Atlantis. (SGA: "Critical Mass") When a Hive ship came to Lantea the Athosians moved back to Atlantis to hide. (SGA: "Allies") When Lanteans returned and took control of Atlantis, the Athosians were moved from the mainland to New Athos. (SGA: "The Return, Part 1") The Athosians were taken from New Athos by Michael Kenmore. (SGA: "Missing", "The Kindred, Part 1") Many of them were experimented on by Michael and some were turned into hybrids. The surviving Athosians were later rescued by Sheppard's team. (SGA: "The Kindred, Part 1") Those Athosians who were converted into hybrids were returned to normal and allowed to rejoin their people. (SGA: "The Seed", "Broken Ties")
