Dragoon is a super-villain within the Guild of Calamitous Intent and is secretly Councilman 8 of the The Council of 13, the leaders of the Guild. He is also one of the two oldest villains within the Guild alongside fellow councilman Red Mantle.
When he is defeated and kidnapped by Revenge, his head is sewn onto the body of Red Mantle.
When he told the tale of his induction into The Guild of Calamitous Intent, he implied that he was once The Big Bopper and did not die in a tragic plane crash in 1659, er, 1959.
He was present when the Council held a trial for Intangible Fancy due to illegally smuggling contraband. However he and Red Mantle were soon kidnapped by Phantom Limb, who then accidentally gave Dragoon a heart attack and was forced to call on Billy Quizboy to remove Dragoon's head and sew it onto Red Mantle's body once they got back to his headquarters. He then interrogated the Red Mantle/Dragoon Hybrid about the origin of the Guild and the ORB, and then forced them to help him in his insane scheme to acquire it. He also made them do exercises so they could get accustomed to their new two-headed state. They are forced to follow the deranged villain's plan due to his threats. They are later freed by The Sovereign who has Phantom Limb captured.
In "Every Which Way But Zeus", Dragoon and Red Mantle are kidnapped by the O.S.I along with several others. While there, the two expressed their disdain for the fellow prisoner Phantom Limb who was responsible for stitching them together.
In "Bot Seeks Bot", he and Red mantle attend the funeral of their fellow council member Boggles the Clue Clown. While Red Mantle mourns the loss of his old friend, Dragoon appears uninterested admitting he never cared for the latter which led to him being scolded by Red Mantle. He later goes with his fellow council members to Don Hell to celebrate the induction of new member Dr. Phineas Phage.
In "All This and Gargantua-2", Red Mantle, Dragoon, and Dr. Z fled from the Guild, most likely after hearing of the other council members suddenly being murdered. They fled to OSI headquarters for a deal in exchange for full immunity, they would tell them of the Sovereign's location.
In Hostile Makeover, Dragoon, Red Mantle and Dr. Z have joined the newly reformed council of 13. He and his fellow council soon learn that Dr. Henry Killinger will not be their new sovereign and has left them instructions on how to properly lead the guild. The new council soon set off to find new members and later find a potential candidate in New York named Wide Wale.
In "Faking Miracles", the group along with their new member Wide Wale reached the decision of re-instating Dr. Phineas Phage into the council which is readily accepted
- A "Dragoon" is a type of mounted infantryman that was common in the late 17th century (probably one reason for the "1659" mistake). Dragoons wore uniforms (including a spiked helmet) similar to the one Dragoon wears.
- It has been shown he has an extreme hatred of magic believing it to be the work of the Devil, which causes problems with Red Mantle who is a magic user.
