During the Hyborian Age, Dagon was seen by some as a benelovent god, the father of fishes, despite his true nature, and his jealousy-driven goal of returning all life to the sea.
He had disciples who "[became] one with the sea", turning into fish-men (or "men of the sea), in the name of Dagon. Those disciples were mentioned in tales, presented as Mermaids and Sirens. They raided villages to capture new members, who were controlled and transformed by Dagon.
Dagon was a jealous god, who wished to have all life return to the sea.
