The village of Ver Ager

General info

They live in the Ancient (Alteran) home galaxy. (Avalon part 2)

Their civilization appears to be roughly medieval - buildings and furniture, etc., are largely stone and wood, and metalworking appears to be fairly basic (smithy work for tools). (Avalon part 2)

They're followers of the Path of Origin, as guided by Priors of the Ori. (Avalon part 2)

Everyone has a copy of the Book of Origins (on the front cover, it says 'The Book of Origins. Blessed are the Ori.') (Avalon part 2)

All religious iconography - paintings, embroidery, stonework, ara/altar - consisted of images of a Prior's staff, whether direct representation or somewhat stylized. (Avalon part 2)

As part of the worship, everyone met for Prostration -- six hours on their knees with lowered heads, with at least part of it being a call-and-response format led by one man, the Administrator (the response always seemed to be 'All hallow the Ori'). (Avalon part 2)

According to the Book of Origin, the people were created by the Ori. (Avalon part 2)

Part of their faith included an 'ara', a sacrificial altar in the village square. It was almost a low circular maze - a heretic would be placed in the middle near a large stone and chained to it, and blazing oil would flow down the channels of the maze until the heretic was consumed and burned alive. (Avalon part 2)

Heretics were said to have been 'overcome' - presumably meaning 'possessed', probably by evil forces, but definitely with heretical overtones. (Avalon part 2)

Not everyone follows Origin. There was a resistance building, including Harrid and Sallis. (Avalon part 2)

The resistance was very small, and very secret. They met in secret to share knowledge, and hid any artifacts they found (in different places) so that if one of them were discovered, the rest would be safe. (Avalon part 2)

Those who investigate their own history are called 'curators' - and are heretics. No one is permitted to study anything that contradicts the Book of Origin. (Avalon part 2)

Harrid and Farris were both curators. (Avalon part 2)

Known villagers

the Administrator

Name unknown.

He led the Prostration services on the steps of what appeared to be the temple (it's not clear why the services weren't held inside, but possibly they only went in for special occasions). (Avalon part 2)

When Vala - whom he and his wife thought was Sallis - said things while 'sharing leaves' with the Administrator's wife that seemed heretical, he had her brought to the 'ara', a sacrificial altar designed to burn heretics alive. (Avalon part 2)

He seemed absolutely sincere in his belief, telling Vala not to fear - that if her heart was pure and her faith unwavering, her death would bring her to the Ori. (Avalon part 2)

After she died in the flames and was brought back to healthy uncharred life by a Prior, the Administrator's only comment was a sincere, 'Hallowed are the Ori.' (Avalon part 2)

He became a Prior after 'cleansing' his village of the unbelievers Harrid and Sallis -- burning them alive (with a Prior's help) for having been 'overcome'. (Origin)

Fannis X

A friend of Harrid and Sallis's - and one of their co-conspirators. (Avalon part 2)

Like Harrid, he was a curator - an investigator of the past. He and Harrid discovered the communication stones in an ancestral burial ground. (Avalon part 2)

He was worried when Harrid and Sallis began behaving oddly, and relieved to find out that it was because they were effectively 'possessed' by Daniel and Vala - he believed Daniel's explanation immediately. He freely told Daniel about the resistance movement and what they hoped to accomplish. (Avalon part 2)

After Daniel and Vala (still appearing to be Harrid and Sallis) returned to the village from their trip to the City of Gods, Fannis went to see them to offer what help he could. He knew that the Priors/Ori were hoping to use Daniel and Vala to find more unbelievers, and knew he was risking his life by being seen with them, never mind actively helping them, but he was resigned, even cheerful, about his possible fate. He hoped that by helping them to spread the word back to their people about the truth of the Ori, they might someday spread the word back again to his own, to show his people what they were really worshipping. (Origin)

He brought them directly to a communications-device base unit identical to the one found on Earth, and they put their stones in. Almost immediately, Harrid and Sallis were back in their own bodies. Fannis seemed to sense the difference - he lit up with a smile. But a Prior was coming down the stairs, his staff glowing with power, and Fannis began to asphyxiate. He died on the floor. (Origin)

Harrid Cicera X

Married to Sallis. (Avalon part 2)

He was a curator - an investigator of the past. He and Farris discovered Ancient (Alteran) communication stones in an ancestral burial ground, and Harrid brought them home and hid them. He'd only assumed they were for communication, but it wasn't confirmed until he and Sallis swapped consciousnesses with Daniel and Vala. (Avalon part 2)

Harrid wound up back on Earth in Daniel's unconscious body. (Avalon part 2)

After a fair bit of time -- several hours, at least -- Daniel and Vala put the communication stones on the other end into a matching base device, triggering the return of everyone to their own bodies, awake and aware. Harrid and Sallis came to themselves standing in a small room with their friend Fannis -- but with a Prior coming down the stairs behind them.

After a fair bit of time -- several hours, at least -- Daniel and Vala put the communication stones on the other end into a matching base device, triggering the return of everyone to their own bodies, awake and aware.   Harrid and Sallis came to themselves standing in a small room with their friend Fannis -- but with a Prior coming down the stairs behind them. Fannis began to asphyixiate. Harrid and Sallis were only there for a moment before the device turned off, switching Daniel and Vala back into their bodies. (Origin)

Daniel and Vala were taken to be burned, but at the last moment before they died, Harrid and Sallis were switched back into their own bodies when Teal'c and Mitchell destroyed the communicator connecting them. They almost certainly died horribly. (Origin)

Sallis Cicera X

Married to Harrid. (Avalon part 2)

It's not clear if she was also a curator, an investigator of the past, but she certainly knew about Harrid's actions in any event, and shared his belief that the Ori were not the creators of their people. (Avalon part 2)

Sallis wound up back on Earth in Vala's unconscious body when the communication stones she and Harrid had in their home apparently triggered a link with the communication stones Daniel and Vala places in the base unit of the long-distance communicator. (Avalon part 2)

When Vala, in Sallis's body, died engulfed in flames as a heretic, Sallis, in Vala's body, died of heart failure in the SGC's lab. Sallis recovered when the Prior revived and healed Vala on Sallis's homeworld. (Avalon part 2)

After a fair bit of time -- several hours, at least -- Daniel and Vala put the communication stones on the other end into a matching base device, triggering the return of everyone to their own bodies, awake and aware.   Harrid and Sallis came to themselves standing in a small room with their friend Fannis -- but with a Prior coming down the stairs behind them.
