Engineer Tryan, second rank, was among the crew of the Stromos, a cryogenic ship built to carry the survivors of Talthus to Ardena. When the Stromos crashed on P2A-347, Tryan's body was one of several that died as the cryogenic compartments began to fail. Desperate to preserve as many of his people as he could, Officer Pharrin downloaded the consciousness of at least a dozen passengers, including Tryan, into Daniel Jackson. Each time his personality emerged within Daniel's body, Tryan offered his cooperation to help Dr. Fraiser find a solution to the situation. He had a steady, efficient, and practical approach as well as an intimate understanding of the ship's systems, and he accepted Pharrin's decision that it was necessary to sacrifice the souls Daniel carried in order to preserve the last of their race. Instead, however, Pharrin agreed to restore Daniel and absorb the personalities Daniel carried, including Tryan, within himself.
