Villain Overview

The Gem was born of Evil's fire. The Gem shall be his portal. He comes to claim. He comes to sire. The end of all things mortal.

The skies will burn. Flesh will become stone. The sun will set on your world, never to rise again.
~ Slade foretelling Trigon's arrival.
Go forth and conquer. One by one, worlds shall fall until every being in this entire dimension bows down, to worship Trigon the Terrible!
~ Trigon the Terrible
Safety is an illusion. Freedom a mirage.
~ Trigon

Trigon is one of the main antagonists in the DC universe. He is the abusive father and archenemy of his daughter Raven, and the main antagonist of the Teen Titans series, being the team's most powerful enemy and their most dangerous by far, sharing this role with Deathstroke.

To date, he was the main antagonist of the first New Teen Titans story arc, as he was the reason Raven re-assembled the Teen Titans to begin with. He would later return as the main antagonist of the Terror of Trigon story arc and later becomes the main villain of several story arcs after that.

In terms of power and scope, he is generally the most powerful and dangerous villain the Titans have ever faced. He is also worshiped by the Church of Blood. As of the New 52, Trigon is now one of the lords of Hell, ruling the 8th layer and the grandfather of Etrigan.

Biography

Origin

A manipulative, heartless, sadistic, and powerful demon of inter-dimensional origin and a supreme master of a very strange underworld, Trigon is a result of the mating between a female member of a mystic sect and the god they worshiped. A side effect of this pairing is that their child was filled with the cast-off evil energies of the inhabitants of Azarath, forming him into their personification. At birth, Trigon killed everyone around him (including his own mother). At the age of 6, he destroyed an entire planet. And by the age of 30, he held dominion over millions of worlds in his dimension.

Arella, Raven's mother, was a depressed woman who decided to join a Satanic cult known as the Church of Blood that was trying to kill Trigon. When the ritual was performed, Trigon, disguised as a handsome male, emerged and married Arella, who, soon impregnated by Trigon, discovered Trigon's true nature. Trigon leaves Arella, who on the brink of suicide is found by an extra-dimensional cult and brought to Azarath, where she gives birth to a daughter, Raven. Raven is brought up to "control her emotions" in order to suppress and control the demonic powers she inherited from Trigon.

Raven learned of Trigon's intentions to conquer the Earth and vowed to stop him; she initially approached the Justice League, but they refused her on the advice of Zatanna who sensed her demonic parentage. In desperation, she reformed the Teen Titans with several new members in order to fight her father. The team was eventually able to defeat Trigon and seal him in an inter-dimensional prison. However, Raven still had to fight her father's influence as he was not completely destroyed.

Trigon eventually escaped and came to Earth, taking control of Raven and destroying Azarath in the process. The Titans came together and tried to fight Trigon, but were contaminated by his demonic influence and killed Raven; this allowed the souls of Azarath to possess her and use her as a channel to kill Trigon, the demonic possession had been part of a plan to defeat Trigon, as the Titans would never have killed Raven on their own, blasting him out of existence with a beam of purifying light. Although Trigon is gone, his followers (led by Brother Blood) have tried to revive him several times.

Sons of Trigon

In Titans vol. 2, #1, Raven states that Trigon has returned and is responsible for the recent attacks on past and present members of the Teen Titans. The cause of his resurrection from the dead has not been revealed. It is revealed in issue #3 that attacks by rival demons have spread Trigon's forces too thinly and left him desperately weak, which forces him to renew his attack on our dimension in hopes of creating a new power base. Jacob, Jared and Jesse, three of Trigon's sons, turn up in Titans #4. They have the key part in his return to life. Issue #3 also reveals that these new children have the ability to induce the seven deadly sins in any living being; the children in #3 induce wrath (Jared), envy (Jacob) and lust (Jesse).

In Titans #4, they attempt to open the portal to Trigon's realm, but betray their father and steal what little power Trigon had left (an action that Trigon is actually proud of). The trio leave, thinking they have gained great power, and Trigon is left trapped in his realm. The three return a short time later, in Titans #5, corrupting their half-sister and turning her to their side. However, they are defeated by Raven and the Titans.

Returns

Trigon would later continue to return as a major villain and even fought the justice league.He was later used as one of the lords of hell and ruler of the 8th circle of Hell.He is also revealed to be the father of Belial who in turn is the father of Etrigan,Merlin,and Scapegoat. This makes Trigon Etrigan's grandfather and was also responsible for the giving Psimon his powers.

DC Universe Online

Trigon as seen in DC Universe Online.

Trigon is featured in DC Universe Online. He and his forces find their way to Earth and end up attacking Metropolis' Tomorrow District. He even takes control of Raven in a plot to destroy the city and captures the other Titan members Cyborg, Starfire, Nightwing, and Donna Troy while corrupting them. When the players free the possessed Titans, Trigon's hold on Raven gets stronger, causing the players and the Titans to split up to find Raven.

With help from Zatanna, the players end up heading into the portal to Raven's soul self where Trigon uses Raven's possessed spirit to attack the players. After helping Raven fight the last Possessed Raven Spirit, Trigon's evil escapes to Earth. While being brought into Earth by Brother Blood, Trigon then sends his demon minions to corrupt the citizens based on some of the Seven Deadly Sins. Brother Blood's plans to bring Trigon to Earth were thwarted by the players and the Sentinels of Magic.

He is served by Demons, Embodiments of Sin, Soul Reavers, Soul Screams, Soul Shadows, Soul Strikers, Possessed Students, and Volatile Succubi. It can be the opposite if you chose a villain, not a hero as your moral. You get to fight the Titan members and Raven's souls before they became possessed. You get missions from Brother Blood, and completing them help Circe with the goal of bringing back Trigon.

Injustice: Gods Among Us

Trigon also appeared as part of Raven's super move, Deadly Sin, in Injustice: Gods Among Us. Raven sends her opponent to a dark realm. The opponent is attacked by demons and then blasted down by Trigon's eye vision. In the Story Mode, it is said that the Regime version of Raven eventually gave in to Trigon's influence and transformed her into a dark worshiper of Trigon with a more sadistic streak, also using Superman's Regime as a stepping stone to eventually release himself.

However, Trigon's plan did not come to fruition once the Regime fell, although there was still a possibility as Raven went missing. Trigon also appears in Raven's Classic Battle end where Raven's (unknown whether it's the Regime Raven, or the prime Raven) battle against Superman forced her to tap into Trigon's power too much that after Superman's defeat, Trigon was released and went to scorch the Earth with his demonic legions, thanking his daughter for release.

Lastly, Trigon also appears a bonus, 'dummy' character in Raven's final STARS Lab mission, where Raven (prime) must defeat him. He is also shown in Scorpion's arcade ending whom he summoned into the DC Universe to lead his army whom Scorpion deserted and from having the honor of defeating Superman. Scorpion and Trigon then had an epic battle with the former emerging the victor and soon had control of the latter's army.

Miscellaneous

Teen Titans Go! Comics

Raven's mental image of Trigon also made an appearance in Teen Titans Go! #5.

    • Energy Projection: He can project demonic energy as attacks, even from his four eyes.
    • Shape-Shifting: He can alter his physical size at all.
    • Superhuman Strength: Due to his enormous size, he has vast superhuman strength.
    • Near-Invulnerability: He is almost immune too physical harm, due to his size.

    • Matiokinesis: He was able to reshape the entire planet Earth on a whim.
    • Demon Creation: He could create hordes of demons under his command.
    • Power Bestowal: He granted powerful psionic powers to Psimon.

Raven also possesses this power, and is capable of inducing pride; however, doing so will leave her sick and nauseated for several days.
