Tagan was the wife of Torren and mother of Teyla Emmagan.


Background informationEdit

When Teyla was an infant, Tagan left through the Stargate and never returned. Teyla always resented being compared to Tagan as a result of this. (SGA: "Legacy")

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Teyla named her new born son Torren John Emmagan, apparently partly named after both her father and John Sheppard, which caused some confusion among fans over her comment about being the "Daughter of Tagan", as they assumed this was a patronymic. Joseph Mallozzi has attempted to explain this discrepancy by suggesting that Teyla could have been referring to her mother.[1]
  • In the Stargate Atlantis: Legacy series, her name is spelled Tegan.
