DARKLON is a distant cousin of the Destro clan and the last of a long line of privateers, mercenaries and investment bankers. From his cast-iron castle in the Alps, he dispatched his private armies to do battle for the highest bidder until Destro called upon him to lead his legions in his bid to take over Cobra.
"Completely unhindered by ideology or ethics, Darklon is motivated purely by greed. His telephone solicitors have been known to drum up business for his mercenary army by offering 'reasonable hourly rates' and cash rebates!"
No variations of Darklon (v1) are known to exist.
Darklon's body mold is entirely original.
