Powers and Abilities
- Demonic Physiology: Etrigan is much more powerful than a regular demon. He is mystically enhanced and trained for hundreds of years.
- Superhuman Strength
- Superhuman Durability
- Fire Breath
- Hellfire Projection
- Magic: Etrigan has a high command of magic; through his prowess in magic, he has enhanced his normal demon physiology, giving him added abilities.
Etrigan was originally summoned by the wizard Merlin as part of a last-ditch defense of Camelot against the evil witch, Morgaine le Fay. When it became clear that the kingdom would fall regardless, Merlin sent the demon away and changed him into a human named Jason Blood to wait until he was summoned.
Centuries later, Jason Blood was called to the crypt of Merlin and discovered a poem that could change him into Etrigan. Unfortunately, he was followed by the long-lived Morgaine who lusts for Merlin's secrets. That led to Etrigan's first major battle, and to the solidification of Morgaine as a major enemy. In addition, he later gained another enemy in Klarion the Witch Boy, who creates trouble with his magic.
