- "Well, during the Third Dynasty of ancient Egypt, Imhotep was credited as being the first pyramid builder. He was later deified among the ancient Egyptians. But, among the Goa'uld, at least as far as I know, he never achieved power of any kind."
- — Daniel Jackson
Ktano was a minor Goa'uld who never achieved much power. When the Jaffa rebellion started growing in numbers, Imhotep took on the guise of his First Prime Ktano, so as to become a leader among the Jaffa and get as many of them to join the rebellion so Yu could help destroy them all. Imhotep had other plans instead, wanting power for himself, he started attacking the System Lords. Imhotep, believed to be Ktano, was challenged to Joma Secu, a Jaffa challenge of leadership, by Teal'c and was killed. (SG1: "The Warrior")
