Former First Prime of the minor System Lord Dagda, Ives'a carried a Goa'uld symbiote known as Nakith. Through deep states of Kelnoreem, Ives'a and Nakith spoke and learned from one another. Repulsed by the Goa'uld way of life, Nakith convinced Ives'a to leave Dagda's service and find the Tok'ra. Once there, with Nakith nearing maturity, Ives'a agreed to become Nakith's new host, as the Goa'uld refused to take any other. Now blended, the pair work with the Tau'ri in an attempt to stop other System Lords.
