—Daegon reveals he murdered Argus and Delia to Taven in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.

Daegon is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, serving as the sub-boss of the game's Konquest Mode.

About DaegonEdit

The main antagonist of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Daegon is the brother of Taven, son of the Edenian protector god Argus and the prophet Delia, and half-brother of Rain. 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 and guarded by two dragons. They would be awakened one day to fight Blaze and save the realms from Armageddon.

AppearanceEdit

Daegon is depicted as a tall, well built man with tan skin and completely bald. On the left side of his face is a dragon tattoo to mirror his brother Taven's, and his left eye is blinded while a long scar runs over his right eye, and he has a small goatee on his chin. He wears no shirt, only a black belt with a golden sigil of the Red Dragon clan on it, suspenders connected to his shoulder armor, arm guards with spikes and a long red cape with gold linings and another gold Red Dragon sigil embroided on the back. He wears red pants with gold linings and black boots with studs along their fronts.

Although Daegon looks much older than Taven, he is actually Taven's younger brother. This is explained by the fact that Daegon was awakened centuries ago.

Combat characteristicsEdit

As the son of the Edenian god Argus and the sorceress Delia, Daegon is one of the most powerful kombatants in the Mortal Kombat series. Like his brother Taven, he possesses the ability to control fire, most likely inherited from his mother, and is proficient in duel wielding his Drakeswords.

TriviaEdit
