|12:39 pm - Character Profile: Shau'nac|
First appearance: S4 Crossroads Last appearance: S4 Crossroads
Career: Shau’nac was a priestess who originally devoted her life to serving Apophis. Inspired by Teal’c’s rebellion, she attempted to communicate with her symbiote. When it appeared she had achieved some form of communication through deep kel no reem, Shau’nac tried to convince it to leave behind the Goa’uld. She believed she had succeeded and was sent to Earth by Bra’tac.
The Tok’ra were sceptical of her claims but agreed to find a host for her symbiote and a new symbiote for Shau’nac. All appeared well after the symbiote Tanith was in the body of his Tok’ra host but Tanith later revealed that he was still loyal to the Goa’uld and killed Shau’nac for her arrogance in thinking she could turn him (S4 Crossroads).
Female Friendships: Unknown.
Romantic Others: Shau’nac was Teal’c’s first love before he met his wife Drey’auc. They had parted due to Shau’nac entering the priestesshood. With the dissolution of his marriage, Teal’c reconciled with Shau’nac prior to her death, even promising to leave the Tau’ri and return to Chulak with her. He was telling his team of his plan when news arrived of Shau’nac’s death. Teal’c later realised that Tanith had killed her. He acquiesced to the Tok’ra’s demand that they could use Tanith (S4 Crossroads).
When Tanith escaped Teal'c never forgave himself for not avenging Shau’nac when he had the chance. His thirst for vengeance led to his capture and brainwashing by Apophis (S4 Exodus/S5 Enemy Mine). Eventually, Teal’c killed Tanith and his vengeance was complete (S5 48 Hours).
During his dreaming as he fought for survival sharing his symbiote between himself and Bra’tac, Teal’c imagined Shaun’nac as his wife, Shauna.
AU/Other Versions: Shauna (S6 The Changeling)
