The main villain
introduced in Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Daegon is the evil brother of Taven,
and the second son of the Edenian protector god Argus (also the father
of Rain) and the prophet Delia.
Contrary to his appearance, he is actually the younger brother of Taven.
When Delia foretold the future of the realms as Armageddon, Argus had his
sons put into incubation guarded by two dragons. They would be awakened
one day to fight Blaze and save the realms from
Daegon awoke prematurely due to an error by his guardian dragon Caro, who lost mental contact with Blaze and mistakenly believed that to
be the signal to release Daegon. Daegon became unbalanced by the early
awakening, and confronted his parents about the true nature of the quest.
Once he found out what he needed, he killed his parents and formed the
Red Dragon Clan, in later years using the DNA of Caro, whom he had imprisoned,
to create human-dragon hybrids, and using the dragon's ability to create
portals to transport his clan anywhere they needed to go. The quest required
that both brothers take a weapon that was given to them by their father
(the Drakeswords) and a gift from their mother (their armor). When Daegon
made it to the temple of where the swords were, he took them both.
