Introduction by ciannwn

How did Wraith naming for ones who weren't named in Stargate Atlantis start? It seems that it just did back in the All Wraith Thunk Thread on GateWorld and the idea caught on. When the Wraith Defenders Club was formed the custom continued. It has its practical side because it's much easier to refer to "Gawain" than "the Sateda hunter who walked along a corridor and discovered Ronon clinging to the ceiling". naamiaiset, a WDC member, created a web page for all Wraith who'd been named at the time although some Wraith ended up with more than one fan suggested name because a final decision was never made. She also included information on which episodes the Wraith had been in and the actors who played them.

Some of the WDC members started a role playing game and those who adopted a multi named Wraith for role playing chose the name they preferred. After naamiaiset's web page was taken down the role players' game guides were used as a reference instead but this wasn't an ideal arrangement for WDC members who weren't in the game. This is why I decided to create a proper replacement for naamiaiset's page – the Wraith And Actors page. As I'd saved naamiaset's original I was able to copy what she put but there have been one or two additions since then. The Other Wraith page is for Wraith we found in the background or lying on floors etc. We have no idea who played them but we named them anyway. We then picked out a few memorable masked warriors because they tend to be overlooked even though they, too, are Wraith.

Note by Draco-Stellaris: This is the replacement page for both naamiaiset's and the old WDC project site created by ciannwn. Though the links have been tested, I can not guarantee the permanent availability of these contents as they lie within the responsibility of the respective site owner. If you find a link that is no longer working, please contact me by the e-mail address mentioned at the foot of the page.

We have collected a number of links leading to useful information and interviews with the actors. To scroll straight down to the links, please click here.

Main List of Wraith Characters and Actors

Clicking on the names will take you to the links for the respective actor.
Unless otherwise stated, the Wraith were named by members of the Wraith Defenders Club on GateWorld.


Akasha - The Queen (5x08) -
Apollonia Vanova

Archimedes - Reunion (4x03) -
Scott Heindl

Astor - The Hive (2x11) -
James Lafazanos

Aurelian - Outsiders (5x12) -
Has to be Brendan Penny because this male Wraith isn't the Commander Wraith (Dave), Second In Command Wraith (Tubbs) or Bridge Tech Wraith (Crockett).

Aurora - Aurora (2x09) -
James Lafazanos

Betty -
The Lost Boys (2x10)/The Hive (2x11) - Andee Frizzell

Billy (he was never named on the show but the First Contact end credits refer to him as Billy Wraith) - The Queen (5x08 (probably)), First Contact (5x10) -
James Chutter

Note - Whoever wrote this Stargate wiki entry for Billy regards James Chutter's Bridge Officer Wraith and Billy as being the same character. The facial hair and forehead tattoo is the same for both so it's logical that they are supposed to be the same Wraith.


Bob - (name given on the show)
The Gift (1x18), The Siege, part I (1x19) -
James Lafazanos

Boris - Sateda (3x04) -
Dan Payne

Bullseye -
First Contact (5x10)/
The Lost Tribe (5x11)(speculation) -
actor is a bit of a mystery.

GateWorld Episodes and Stargate Wiki conflict on who was in First Contact. Stargate Wiki says James Chutter as "Billy", Brendan Penny as Wraith. But GateWorld doesn't list Brendan Penny amongst the episode guest stars. Meanwhile the IMDb page for Brendan Penny doesn't say he was in First Contact either. James Chutter is a male Wraith in The Lost Tribe and WDC members agreed that this photo is his character.

Here are the human form and the Wraith form of Michael.


Mina - Allies (2x20), No Man's Land (3x01) -
Andee Frizzell

Original image on this site. The image information includes wraithcody in the filename and, as Mortimer bears a strong resemblance to Neo and Fred, we think this might be Cody Laudan.

Christopher Heyerdahl
Except in Be All My Sins Remember'd - voiced by Heyerdahl but played by Brendan Penny and possibly Spoils Of War because there is conflicting information about who played him in this episode.

Tommy - Be All My Sins Remember'd (4x11), Spoils Of War (4x12), Midway (4x17) -
Brendan Penny in Midway but conflicting information about who played him in Be All My Sins Remember'd and Spoils Of War.

WDC members decided that the Wraith in BAMSR and Spoils was the same one as in Midway because of the facial hair and distinctive chin tattoos. We have no idea how he managed to escape being blown up in Spoils, though. Additional information: He is also the Wraith known as Ember in the Legacy book series, according to this blog by Melissa Scott.
