History: Agathon was a demon in the court of Satan. While Satan was posing as Miles Gorney, he sent Agathon to abduct Satana's ally, a man named Michael Heron. Satana had given Heron a ring known as the Azshiran, which was supposed to defend him against demons. However, Agathon sliced off Heron's entire hand to separate him from the ring, and then captured him. Agathon then confronted and incapacitated Satana, as well, bringing her before Gorney.

Gorney attempted to tempt Satana, but she rebelled and attacked him. When Agathon attempted to assist him, Satana kicked him back into a spiked sculpture, impaling him.

Comments: Created by Chris Claremont and George Evans.
