"Your race has learned nothing... but you have."
―Lya to Daniel Jackson[src]

Lya is a female Nox.


This section requires expansion

Background informationEdit

She is the mother of Nafrayu and the wife of Anteaus. (RPG: "Fantastic Frontiers: Stargate Season One")


She and the other Nox healed SG-1 and Shak'l after SG-1 failed to capture Apophis and were killed. While she was looking after Shak'l, he killed her, but the other Nox revived her. (SG1: "The Nox")


Later, Dr. Daniel Jackson asked her to come help the Tollan refugees to relocate off Earth. She and the rest of the Nox then helped them get to their new homeworld, Tollana. At that moment she became a close friend of SG-1.  (SG1: "Enigma")


When the Tollans held a Triad to determine who had predominance, Skaara or Klorel, she was selected to be the neutral Archon and eventually voted in favor of Skaara. Teal'c suspected that the Goa'uld would try to cheat, so he asked Lya to conceal one of the Tollans' ion cannons. She only cloaked the weapon, but she didn't fire it: she didn't cross the pacifist line. Pacifism doesn't mean ignoring violence in relation to friends and other innocent people. (SG1: "Pretense")


  • Lya is the only Nox who appeared in more than one episode, and so far the only Nox to visit Earth.
