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 Maximoff and was consumed by him.

It's kinda difficult to be an "original" design when you're a "man of fire". This archetype has been done many times over (Human Torch anyone)? Even in the fighting game realm, we have Cinder. However, Pyron manages to be unique with his distinctively evil appearance... his notable features being his cool devil horns and that rockin' bod (the dude works out). If you've seen the Darkstalkers anime, you'd likely agree Pyron was awesomely portrayed and fleshed out as a badass bad guy.

Pyron looks badass in the official artworks... but his 2D sprite, on the other hand... while amazingly animated, is peculiarly "small" in the actual games. He's definitely not a tall character the game (and seems like he should be). When Pyron made his "epic" return in Capcom Fighting Evolution, he's practically a midget compared to the size of the other characters. I guess they couldn't stretch his sprite or redraw all of those incredible frames of animation. Understandable. In closing, Pyron's also a very cheap character. His teleports and insane priority moves are super OP. I think Capcom could've done more with this design.  I would be excited to see a next-gen Pyron in Darkstalkers 4. >:}
