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 Armageddon.

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.

Daigon is yet another example of went wrong with Mortal Kombat in the infamous "PS2 era" of games. Besides looking suspiciously like Ron Perlman... Daegon is a boring mix of several typical Mortal Kombat characters scrambled together sloppily. He almost looks like a poor man's Kratos... but I think that's giving him too much credit. Like many other characters from the PS2 era of Mortal Kombat games, Daigon's fighting style is janky and incredibly generic.
