DC Universe Online Wiki

Etrigan is a rhyming demon from Hell who, despite his violent tendencies, usually finds himself allied to the forces of good, mainly because of the alliance between the heroic characters of the DC Universe and Jason Blood, a human occultist to whom Etrigan is bound.

They have walked the Earth (and the depths of Hell) together as both comrades and enemies for over a millennium. The Demon has fought on the side of good more than once, but his allegiance is never guaranteed.


Etrigan was born in the pits of Hell as the son of the demon Belial.

During the age of Camelot, Etrigan was summoned to the Earthly plane by his younger half-brother, Merlin, and, in order to remain on Earth, was bound to the body and soul of the druid Jason (Jason Blood). Merlin then employed the demon in the defense of Camelot against his nemesis Morgaine le Fey, her army of demons, and her son Mordred. While Etrigan was able to defeat Morgaine le Fey and her demon army, and Arthur slew Mordred, Camelot still fell due to Merlin being imprisoned by his lover and apprentice, Nimue Inwudu (Madame Xanadu). After the Fall of Camelot, Jason and Nimue became lovers and traveled England for an unspecified time. Eventually they assembled a team of heroes and villains to fight the Lord of Chaos, Mordru, and the Questing Queen. Some time later, Jason is called to the crypt of Merlin and discovers a poem that, once recited, physically changes him into Etrigan if Etrigan is not already on Earth and sends Iason into an unknown realm. Unfortunately, the poem also unleashed the entombed Morgaine le Fey. Eventually parting ways, Jason resurfaces in Gotham City as a prominent demonologist, now calling himself "Jason Blood".
While Jason adventured on Earth as Jason Blood, Etrigan was promoted into a Rhyming Demon in Hell and led the forces of Hell against the Shadowlands. When Jason Blood had a daughter, for her safety he decided to destroy Etrigan and hired metahuman hit-man Tommy Monaghan to help him. The resulting conflict resulted in Jason stealing Etrigan's heart; binding the demon to his will so that he could control him, but he also decided that his daughter would be safer with her mother; advising the woman not to tell the child of her father. Etrigan would later have his heart returned to him in exchange for the anti-demon rifle; Ace of Winchesters.
