Anubis was once a powerful System Lord that was later dismissed from his rank by the others System Lords, who considered the nature of his crimes as nefarious even for a Goa'uld. Consequently they tried to kill him but missed, so Anubis posed himself as dead for continuing his research on Ascension without any disturbances. Finally, his research led him to Oma Dessala, an Ancient who did the ascension, so he manipulated her and finally she made him make the Ascension, However, when she discovered Anubis' real personality, it was too late and the others ascended ancient left him in a mid-ascended state to punish her.
When Osiris manages to capture Thor, the supreme commander of Asgard's fleet, Anubis comes himself to extract information about the Asgard's technology thanks to a device that he created thanks to his acknowledgement of the Ancient's technology. However SG1 manages to free Thor, and Anubis is forced to flee because of the new Asgard spaceships, who can now destroy Anubis's one.
To eliminate Terran's threat once and for all, Anubis uses a device to make the Stargate explode, which would destroy the whole planet. Despite this, his plan fails when O'Neill drops the Stargate into space and Bra'tac, Teal'c, and Rya'c destroy the weapon.
Anubis goes to Abydos to take the Eye of Ra, a powerful artifact that, when combined with the other five eyes that Anubis already has tenfold the power of a single eye, can supply energy to his superweapon on his new spaceship. However, Sg1 takes the eyes before him, and the System Lords send spaceship to destroy him. Due to this, an ascended Daniel Jackson convinces Anubis to make a deal, the eye for the safety of Abydos, but after that, Anubis got the eye and he destroyed all the spaceships, breaking his promise to spare Abydos. Due to this, Jackson tries to stop him, but Oma blocks him and makes him disappear to avoid the Ancients' punishment. After this Anubis finally destroys Abydos, but thanks to Oma, all of the inhabitants has been saved.
