A Symbiote is a parasitic being.


Symbiotes are birthed by a Goa'uld queen, who can procure DNA from the intended hosts for the symbiote in order to ensure compatibility. (SG1: "Hathor") When born symbiotes live in water as they mature enough to be able to be implanted into a Jaffa in order to reach maturity before they can take a host. (SG1: "Bloodlines") A symbiote will wrap itself around the spine and attach itself to the ganglion. The symbiotes are born with the genetic memory of all symbiotes before them. (SG1: "The Enemy Within") A symbiote does not have a gender. (SG1: "The Tok'ra, Part 1") Symbiotes are capable of chemically balancing the mind of hosts and Jaffa. (SG1: "The Light") Symbiotes have a skeletal structure that has at least 34 precloacal vertebraes. (SG1: "Allegiance")
