Telekinetic abilities

"They're still human. Now, highly evolved humans can have some pretty amazing abilities."
- Daniel Jackson - Avalon, Part 2

A Prior is an evolved human that serve the Ori.

Overview

The Priors have advanced abilities, including a form of Telekinesis. (SG1: "Avalon, Part 2", "Origin", "The Powers That Be") They have a staff that they can use to bring people back from the dead and throw people backwards. (SG1: "Avalon, Part 2", "Origin") They preach the word of the Ori, quoting from the Book of Origin, but are unaware of the true purpose of the religion or that the Ori do not ascend their followers. (SG1: "Avalon, Part 2", "Origin", "The Fourth Horseman, Part 2") They are capable of igniting themselves to destroy their bodies but also are genetically programmed to immolate should they turn against the Ori. (SG1: "Origin", "The Fourth Horseman, Part 2")

History

The Priors were created by the Ori. When they learned that the Milky Way had humans in it they sent Priors to begin converting the people. The Doci brought the Administrator to the City of the Gods and the Ori turned him into a Prior. A Prior that was brought to Earth burned himself to dust when prevented from leaving.(SG1: "Origin") Gerak was turned into a Prior as part of the plan to convert the Jaffa to Origin. When he used his abilities to cure people on Earth of the PRIOR2 virus, his body burned to death. (SG1: "The Fourth Horseman, Part 2") With a cure for the virus, the Priors created the R75 bug to decimate the crops of planets so the Priors could provide help; the bugs could adapt to eat people if the people did not respond. (SG1: "The Scourge") The Priors began preaching to people that the doomsday for the unbelievers was close to happening. (SG1: "Arthur's Mantle") Adria converted Daniel Jackson into a Prior, able to use her amulet to focus the power of the Ori. (SG1: "The Shroud")
