|Dragon Quest II|
Hargon, mad cultist of Rendarak, is the primary antagonist in Enix's Dragon Quest II. His cult, the aplty named Children of Hargon, seek to usher in an age of misery and destruction by summoning the god of destruction. To accomplish one stage of this mission, Hargon sent his minions to attack Moonbrooke Castle at the beginning of Dragon Quest II, killing the king and destroying the palace.
Although defeating him appears to be the final objective of the descendants of Erdrick from Midenhall, Cannock, and Moonbrooke, Hargon was in fact a corrupt cleric that planned to summon the God of Destruction, Malroth, whom the heroes must ultimately destroy after defeating Hargon.
Hargon also appears in the Dragon Quest Monsters series.
Hargon is a blue skinned humanoid being who wields a crystal-ball-topped staff in his right hand. On his head he wears a finned helmet bearing a circular gem at the forehead, around his neck a necklace with a crystal adornment, and has a shroud draped over his body that prominently shows off a stylized bat. This bat is the emblem of his cult, and can be seen on monsters serving him such as the Sorcerer, Hargonaut, and Wrecktor. He also has sandals.
Hargon is as arrogant and indignant as one becoming a villain. He is also a potent sorcerer, able to cast powerful magic and invoke terrible curses on those that would defy him.
Hargon is established as the big villain at the start of the game, his minions attacking the kingdom of Moonbrooke and leaving only one soldier to struggle to Middenhall to deliver news of the attack before perishing from the hardships he endured. The Princess of Moonbrooke, one of the descendants of Erdrick, manages to survive the assault but is cursed by Hargon into the form of a dog.
While not an obtainable monster in the game nor one that is even seen, Hargon is mentioned in the library entry for Atlas.
