Origin

Dagon was a loathsome horror upon Earth even before the coming of Men, the Fall of Lemuria and Atlantis.[1] It was possibly one of the Old Ones,[2][3] or degenerated god.[3]

Hyborian Age

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.

Conan, who tried to foil the transformation of villagers and charged the fish-men, was one of many to be turned by Dagon into one of his mindless slaves.[1]

Dagon was a jealous god, who wished to have all life return to the sea.[1]
