|~ Krogan's last words before being executed.|
Krogan is one of the two main antagonists (alongside Johann) in the Netflix computer-animated TV series Dragons: Race to the Edge. He is a minor antagonist of Season 3 & 4, one of the two main antagonists Of Season 5 (along with Viggo Grimborn) and Season 6 (along with Johann). He is the leader of the Dragon Flyers, a servant of Drago Bludvist, the second in command of the Northern Alliance and a leader of the Dragon Hunters.
He was voiced by Hakeem Kae-Kazim who also played his master, Drago Bludvist in the episode "The Wings of War Part 1". He also played Benatu Eshu in Vixen, Waraabe in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Richard Gladwell in Gotham and Georges Rutaganda in Hotel Rwanda.
Krogan is very quiet, and seems to prefer observing from afar. Most of his actions are unpredictable and overly dramatized. Although an antagonist, he has a sense of honor. Krogan has shown to be very ruthless, cunning, and sadistic, much like his boss Drago. Like Drago, Krogan sees Dragons as nothing more than living weapons of mass destruction.
Much like his boss Drago, Krogan wears a cloak made of Dragon skin. Under the cloak, he is a rather thin man, but has a muscular upper body. He has black hair, olive toned skin, and a goatee.
Krogan first appeared in the episode "Last Auction Heroes", where he participates in Viggo's Dragon Auction as a special guest. When Viggo starts selling Hiccup's Night Fury, Toothless, Krogan soon takes an interest and wins the bidding. However, he takes back his money and flees without the Night Fury when Berk's Dragon Riders caused a panic by freeing the auction's dragons.
Krogan reappears in the episode "Midnight Scrum", seeking the bounty placed on Hiccup's head by Viggo Grimborn. He knocks out Throk with a dart after a difficult fight and captures Hiccup. But upon bringing Hiccup to Ryker Grimborn on an island, he is betrayed and ambushed by several Dragon Hunters, whom he manages to defeat. Later, Krogan attacks Hiccup, who had escaped during the ambush, stating that he would take him to Viggo himself to get the bounty.
During their fight, Hiccup removes his mask and recognizes him as the same man who attempted to buy Toothless at Viggo's Dragon Auction, much to Hiccup's anger. Eventually, they both end up hanging at the end of a cliff, Krogan grabs onto Hiccup's prosthetic leg and tells Hiccup to drag him up.
However, much to his shock, Hiccup, still angry at him for attempting to buy Toothless, instead removes his prosthetic leg and sends Krogan falling below to his apparent death. After Stoick the Vast and the Dragon Riders rescue Hiccup, Ryker attempts to kill the latter by throwing a dagger at him, only for Krogan, who is revealed to have survived his fall, to knock him out with Hiccup's removed prosthetic leg. But realizing that he is outnumbered by the Dragon Riders, Krogan jumps from the edge of the cliff and escapes without a trace.
Sometime later, Krogan forms a partnership with Viggo to lead the Dragon Hunters. He soon gathers his best warriors to form a group of Dragon Riders called Dragon Flyers. They ride Dragons known as Singetails. Viggo then returns to the Volcano on Dragon's Edge to find the Dragon Eye. Krogan has his doubts though about the Dragon Eye still being in tact. Viggo soon finds the Dragon Eye and tries to fix it in Hiccup's inn.
In the shadows, Krogan prepares to kill Viggo but was stop when the Dragon Riders came to take back their home. They are soon driven off Dragon's Edge with the Dragon Eye in their hands. Krogan and Viggo soon meet up with Trader Johann (who has been revealed to be a mole for the Dragon Hunters) to check a rare Dragon Eye lens that leads to the "King of Dragons" (the Bewilderbeast).
In the series' last episode "King of Dragon, Part 2", Johann and Krogan attempt to capture the Bewilderbeast living under Beserker Island. They fail, as Johann is frozen by the Bewilderbeast's icy breath. Krogan is taken to Drago Bludvist personally, who demands him to get the Bewilderbeast. Krogan tells Drago that he found the Bewilderbeast, but it got away. Drago, with a sadistic chuckle, makes a fist with his hand and moves it across his neck, which signifies that he is ordering for Krogan's death. As Krogan is taken by his own men to be executed, he tells Drago he will not fail him again, with Drago telling him that no one fails him twice.
Dragons: Race to the Edge
- Combat, Stealth, and Agility: Krogan is a highly skilled and formidable combatant, able to use his axe and fists to fight and keep up with the Defender of the Wing's second-in-command, Throk, and took on multiple Dragon Hunters with little effort. He also used a long chain to capture and restrain Hiccup. When he briefly fought Heather to steal her Dragon Eye lens in "Sins of the Past", Krogan slowly managed to overpower her. Krogan could make high leaps for defensive and offensive purposes and able to escape the Dragon Riders unnoticed.
- Controlling Dragons/Dragon Training & Riding: Like his boss Drago, Krogan can enslave Dragons to his will. He uses this skill to enslave Singetail Dragons to do his bedding. He rides them like other Dragon riders. As the leader of the Dragon Flyers, Krogan was able surpass his subordinates' flying skills with his Singetail.
- The mark on his belt buckle and the shape of his pin identifies him as a member of the Northern Alliance, as it is one of the dragon weapon marks that are seen on some of the sails of Drago's armada. This was revealed to be true in the finale that he really is one of Drago's henchmen.
