History[]

When Dagon was only fourteen-years-old, he was abducted by a military commander named Stalg and taken to Castle Dracula in the mountains of Transylvania. Stalg recovered the remains of the original vampire lord Dracula and used his DNA to give Dagon vampire-like superhuman abilities. It was his intention to use Dagon as a template for the creation of an army of the undead in service to his master Lord Chaos.

Unfortunately, for Commander Stalg, it was the night of the Walpurgis Eclipse - a time when all evil was fated to be purged from the land. Mystical forces combined with the souls of Transylvanian villagers to create a grotesque creature that razed Castle Dracula. The creature attacked Stalg's troops, ultimately killing Stalg himself.

Dagon, now calling himself the Nightrider, recognized that one of Stalg's younger officers, Corporal Charles Watkins, had shown him compassion while he was imprisoned and felt he was not deserving of the same fate as Commander Stalg. He convinced the Walpurgis entity to spare Watkins life. Dagon and Watkins soon became members of the superhuman resistance team known as the Team Titans.
