Pyron is an alien from the planet Hellstorm. He is the original boss of Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors and Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge (where he first became a playable character). After evolving over the course of millions of years, Pyron became a cosmic being comprised solely of energy. His orbital span stretched over 400,000 light years and counting. Over the span of 200 million years, he sets out to rule the entire cosmos, and sought to collect and conquer various planets and celestial objects one by one. He eventually reaches Earth, and lands deep within the Atlantic Ocean to wait for the right time to consume the planet. Originally, he came to Earth 65 million years ago and created the army of Huitzil to destroy life on Earth. Pyron didn't want to consume Earth back then because he wanted the Earth to "ripen" before harvesting it. In the end, he was defeated by Demitri and was consumed by him.

It's pretty difficult to be an "original" design when you're just a "man of fire". The design has been done many times over (Human Torch for example), even in the fighting game realm ( Cinder). However, Pyron manages to be fairly unique with his distinctively evil appearance... his notable features being those cool devil horns and that rockin' mod (the dude works out). If you've seen the Darkstalkers anime, you'd probably agree that Pyron was pretty awesomely portrayed and fleshed out. 

Pyron definitely looks badass in the official artworks... his 2D sprite on the other hand, while amazingly animated, looks strangely "small" in the actual games. He's definitely not a "tall" character in Darkstalkers (and should be)... and when he made his "epic" return in Capcom Fighting Evolution, he's practically a legal midget in that game (not that there's anything wrong with being a midget). Pyron's original sprite and animations are cool and all, but he's also a cheap bastard. (His teleports and insane priority moves are super OP.) In short, I think Capcom could've done more with this design...  I would be particularly excited to see a next-gen Pyron in Darkstalkers 4. >:}
