Background Information

Etrigan was originally summoned by the wizard Merlin as part of a last-ditch defense of Camelot against the evil witch, Morgaine le Fay. When it became clear that the kingdom would fall regardless, Merlin sent the demon away and changed him into a human named Jason Blood to wait until he was summoned.

Centuries later, Jason Blood was called to the crypt of Merlin and discovered a poem that could change him into Etrigan. Unfortunately, he was followed by the long-lived Morgaine who lusts for Merlin's secrets. That led to Etrigan's first major battle, and to the solidification of Morgaine as a major enemy. In addition, he later gained another enemy in Klarion the Witch Boy, who creates trouble with his magic.[1]

Appearances in Other Media

Etrigan Jason DCAU Etrigan Jason Blood is a world famous occultist. Centuries ago, Jason Blood was magically bonded with the demon Etrigan. Jason Blood was one of King Arthur's knights during the age of Camelot. Seduced by the Witch Morgaine Le Faye, he opened the gates of Camelot to her invading armies, betraying Arthur and his people, so that Morgaine could claim Camelot and they would rule together. Jason was only a pawn, however, in Morgaines plot to allow her son, Mordred, to rule as king. As Jason lay dying from Morgaine's poison kiss, Merlin appeared to the dying Knight. As punishment for his betrayal, Merlin bonded Blood with the demon Etrigan, "one of the vilest demons in Perdition." He was forced to hunt down Morgaine for all time, but he never succeeded, as she wore an amulet that enabled her to detect his presence. Centuries later, Jason had become a recognized Occultist, and used his bond with Etrigan to fight off beings of evil magic. Batman would seek out Jason Blood's help in cases that involved the supernatural.

This version of Etrigan is based on the Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1999), the Justice League (2001-2004) and the Justice League Unlimited (2004-2006) produced for the Cartoon Network.
