Readers all know the main characters, the main staples of our Stargate
SG-1 universes - Jack, Daniel, Sam, Teal'c, General Hammond, Janet,
Cassandra and other recurring characters such as Sgt. Siler, Major Paul
Davis and Harry Maybourne.
Most of my fics are extremely Jack and Daniel centric. Some, especially in S1 through S10, don't even have other characters. The most 'vocal' series regular in my universe is Sam, followed by Janet, Cassandra, Lou Ferretti, General Hammond, and Jack's ex-wife, Sara. Teal'c is probably my weakest 'voice' to be included in the universe.
Minor/recurring characters are present in my universe. Sergeant Siler, Paul Davis, Walter Davis (and he *is* Davis and not Harriman!), Thor, Colonel Reynolds, the Nox, and others pop up from time to time, as do our favorite villains, Senator Robert Kinsey and Colonel Frank Simmons.
Below, in alphabetical order by surname (or given name, if that is all that is known), by category, are characters, some original, some created by other authors and used with their permission, and a few from the series that I've included just as a reminder of who they are. All of these characters are mentioned more than once in my fan fics.
**Reminder**: These descriptions are up-to-date as of 2013 in the storyline, so if you aren't 'current', major spoilers could be present.
