The '''Sleep parasite''', also known as '''Morgan Le Fay's curse''' was a microscopic parasite that infected the people of [[Vagonbrei]]. The parasites have wiped out the whole population on the planet. All animals and birds have also become contaminated by the parasite, however at least one [[lizard]] had an immunity to the parasite. It was shown to be activated from a dormant state when it came into contact with live tissue.  It then produces Melatonin which causes a strong urge to sleep.  Once the infected person falls asleep the parasite gorges itself on the Melatonin produced growing to many times its size.  The infected person then dies from a brain anuerism.{{Cite|SG1|Morpheus}}
