Setesh was a formidable Goa'uld System Lord, renowned as the god of deception and manipulation. He is known for his cunning strategies, masterful intrigues, and the ability to control and deceive both allies and enemies alike. His influence extended throughout the Goa'uld Empire, where he worked through a complex web of lies, half-truths, and psychological warfare.

Mythology and Origin

In Goa'uld mythology, Setesh rose to power by exploiting the weaknesses and ambitions of other System Lords, using his unparalleled skills in manipulation to outmaneuver and subdue his rivals. His rise to prominence is a tale of guile and strategic brilliance, cementing his reputation as a master manipulator.

Physical Appearance

Setesh was often depicted as a figure of imposing presence, clad in dark, intricate robes. His eyes, often glowing with an eerie, unsettling light beyond the normal orange glow characteristic of the Goa'uld, could captivate and intimidate those who meet his gaze.

Powers and Abilities

As a Goa'uld System Lord, Setesh possessed a range of extraordinary abilities:

  • Mind Control: Setesh excelled in psychic domination, able to manipulate the thoughts and actions of others with ease.
  • Illusion Creation: He could create convincing illusions to deceive his enemies and manipulate his surroundings to his advantage.
  • Shapeshifting: Setesh could alter his appearance to assume the guise of others, allowing him to infiltrate and deceive without detection.

Domain and Followers

The true extent of Setesh's domain was rarely known due to his tendency to work in the shadows. His followers, including spies, assassins, and devoted cultists, served him with unwavering loyalty, often unaware of the full extent of his deceit. Temples and shrines dedicated to Setesh can be found throughout the Goa'uld Empire, where rituals and ceremonies reinforced his image as a god of chaos and manipulation.

War of the System Lords

[The following information took place in another timeline before the Heroes of Phandalin went back in time.]

One one fateful adventure the Heroes of Phandalin, searching for weapond and technology in their fight against the Goa'uld, travelled through the chaapa'ai to one of the planets in Setesh's domain. Infiltrating Setesh's palace, several members of the group were initially overwhelmed by an incense used by Setesh to control his followers. In a masterstroke, Kiersey Mirrorwind was able to overpower Setesh's domination, moving her blade in one quick stroke and decapitating the System Lord, leading to his death.

The Dark War

Seeking to quickly and fiercely defeat the remaining System Lords and consolidate their allies in preparation for the final battle against the Dark Lady, Fenris Windstrider and Braethr Delmirev, accompanied by now-ally Alcetryx Thorne, summoned Setesh to a remote planet using the Cubic Gate. With Fenris commanding Alcetryx to prove his loyalty to the Chosen of Del, the vampire lord toyed with the System Lord before swiftly killing him.
