Shagon (also known as Shagon the Hate) is a minor villain in Arc 2: Nerissa's Revenge and a recurring character in Season 2 who is a member of Nerissa's evil band of followers called the Four Knights of Revenge, which later, are known in the TV series as the Knights of Destruction.
Most powerful and dangerous of the Four Knights of Revenge, Shagon is a tall, strong demon with black angelic wings and a lizard's tail, wearing a golden mask and a blue metal vest that (like those of his fellow Knights) has Nerissa's seal on it. His long black hair resembles a nest of snakes, giving him a Medusa-like appearance.
As a human he worked as a geologist doing research near the mysterious Mount Thanos. While searching for his dog, Miska, he eventually came across Nerissa who wanted a human as "material" for her right-hand man. Shagon represents Nerissa's hatred for Kandrakar and feeds on expressions of hate. His life essence was nearly absorbed by Nerissa in the final battle but he wounded her and reverted to his original form. Despite the hatred he expresses he did not forget his feelings as a human about the transformed dog Miska.
Shagon was one of Nerissa's Knights of Destruction. Matt Olsen was transformed into Shagon by Nerissa's power over quintessence. Nerissa gained control over his mind, by using the hatred he felt for her hurting Mr. Huggles as a weapon. Shagon's Power was fueled by the hatred his enemies felt, which he used to mock Will by implying that he had hurt Matt. Cornelia repeatedly urged Will to not allow Shagon to get to her.
Shagon attacked the Guardians' families in order to increase their hatred, which he did successfully. He took particular joy in taunting Will, as he claimed her hatred is pure and that he was enjoying himself too much.
He also claimed that he was so bad, he hates himself. Will tried to appeal to his better judgment, which caused him to flee. This is possibly due to Matt trying to regain control of his body and make Will aware of the situation. Shagon assumed Matt's identity (AKA poses as Matt) in order to spy on the Guardians and cause Will to hate him even more. It is implied that the reason why Shagon is so merciful towards Will is because he still harbors Matt's strong romantic feelings for her.
Shagon was in trouble of revealing that he was not really Matt when he struggled to perform to Matt's usual standard. Inside Shagon's head, Matt argued with Shagon that if he did not allow him to help, he would blow his cover. Shagon allowed Matt enough control of their brain and body so he could rehearse with his band and relieve himself of suspicion. Matt almost managed to regain control several times in order to warn Will, but Shagon realised Will threatened his control over Matt so he decided to get rid of her.
He convinced Will he needed her help and lead her into an ambush. Taranee and Cornelia showed up in time to help her. The Knights gained the upper hand and nearly defeated the Guardians. Matt, seeing Will in trouble, got through by singing the song he wrote for Will, The Will to Love. Will, realised that Matt was inside Shagon, called out to him, thus giving him the strength to fully break free of Shagon and destroying his soul.
Matt then used Shagon's power to turn the tables on the Knights of Destruction. Meanwhile, Nerissa (who was watching the battle through a Fold) drained the Knights of their power to fuel the C.H.Y.K.N. Guardians, reverting Matt and Mr Huggles back to their original forms.
Matt regains his Shagon form from Lilian Hale, the Heart of Earth, but at free will and no longer feeding off hate. He becomes one of the three Regents of Earth, who help protect the planet and assist the Guardians in their fights against evil.
- In L is for Loser, he was referred to by Cornelia as 'Dark Angel'. This could be because of his wings, which resemble angel wings.
