Anubis is a villain from the Stargate SG1 Television series not to be confused with the Anubis Guard from the Stargate film.
Anubis was one of the most powerful — and dangerous — Goa'uld in history. Once a powerful System Lord, Anubis was banished by Ra and the others because his actions were deemed unspeakable, even among the Goa'uld. He was believed destroyed, but managed to escape and trick Oma Desala into helping him to ascend. The Ancients did not want the Goa'uld to join them on the higher planes of existence, and forced him into a state between mortal existence and ascension. Because of his knowledge of the Ancients, Anubis amassed unimaginable advanced technologies, gathering strength for hundreds of years before returning to take his revenge upon the System Lords and dominate the galaxy.
