Trigon is the father of Raven and a demonic conqueror of dimensions. Through his reputation, he became regarded as one of the fiercest beings in the universe.
Meeting the Teen Titans Edit
Trigon arrived at Titans Tower by travelling through an interdimensional portal. He knocked on the Tower's walls and began to recite his professions and titles until he was interrupted by Raven. Shrinking into a size suitable for the Tower's rooms, he quickly introduced himself by flattering the other Titans. Raven demanded to know the reason for his visit, but quickly bid him farewell before entering her room. Hurt, Trigon followed her through a portal of his own as the other Titans sympathized with the demonic conqueror.
Upon entering Raven's room, Trigon attempted to tidy her books and shed light but Raven quickly undid Trigon's work. Trigon revealed his plans to take the Titans to eat pizza, but Raven refused as she knew that Trigon's reason for visiting the Tower was to get her to become fully demonic. He attempted to persuade her, but Raven rebuffed her birthright by claiming she didn't ask to be his daughter. Saddened by the outburst, Trigon exited the room and sat on the couch with the other Titans. He asked them who wouldn't like a father who can grant power, entrancing them. In order to convince Raven to embrace her destiny, Trigon granted Beast Boy the ability to shift into any object and Starfire the power to speak like an Earth teenager. He also gave Cyborg a dog head for a hand and made Robin extremely muscular while giving Silkie a pair of wings.
Trigon flew a kite on top of the Tower when Raven, having grown frustrated by her friends' acceptance of Trigon, informed him of her decision to oblige to his wishes. Trigon instructed her on the path to become truly demonic until he revealed that this would mean the death of her friends, shocking the Titans who realized that Raven was right about Trigon. Angered by her trick, Trigon transformed into his demonic form and was attacked by Robin, Beast Boy, and Cyborg. However, Raven shrunk Trigon in size and cast him into an interdimensional portal, but suspected that he'll return for Thanksgiving.
Father's Day Edit
After Raven neglected to give him a gift for Father's Day, Trigon returned to Earth with the intention of destroying it to harm her. He transported Robin, Beast Boy, and Cyborg to the center of the Earth and shot fireballs at Jump City until Starfire gave him a hand-drawn drawing of Raven and Trigon. Touched by the gesture, he stopped his attack on Earth and promptly disembarked. Later, he returned to the Tower and gifted Starfire a kitten for being nice to him, but Raven promptly shooed him away. Starfire found him on a rock outside the Tower and invited him for a Silly Dance Party which he promptly agreed to.
Trigon showed Starfire a scrapbook filled with pictures of Raven and explained the story behind each one, but Raven destroyed the scrapbook after telling him that she had changed. Trigon, however, snatched a picture from the air and explained to Starfire that it depicted the first time he and Raven tortured a demon together. Saddened, Starfire explained to Trigon that she didn't have a father figure in her life, and Trigon volunteered to fill the role, causing Raven to become jealous as she clutched a picture of her riding Trigon's shoulders.
Raven eventually attacked Starfire out of spite and claimed that Trigon would simply hurt her. However, the two realized that Trigon had toyed with their emotions in another plot to get Raven to accept to her birthright. The demonic conqueror, who had witnessed the battle appeared before them and complained that they stopped when it was getting good. The two managed to transport Trigon into another portal, but he promised to see them at Thanksgiving as he spiraled away.
Turkey Day mission Edit
Trigon arrived at Titans Tower by activating a portal in the elevator. He wishes the Titans a happy Thanksgiving, but Robin tells him he isn't welcome because he isn't on the seating chart.

An eavesdropping Robin, however, attempted to confront Trigon, but the two were thrown out of the Tower for violating the girl's number one rule: No boys allowed. In turn, Trigon and Robin joined Beast Boy and Cyborg at a bowling alley where Trigon praised Cyborg on another strike before asking if he was cheating through his robotic technology which the Titan nervously denied.
To prove that he was better than Dusty Goober and to impress Starfire, Robin embarked on a mission to show off his strengths and punched Trigon as part of his crusade.
Trigon depicts himself as a caring and thoughtful father, quickly earning sympathy from the Titans after Raven shuns him despite his supposed kindness to her. However, he revealed himself to be manipulative and cunning as he had granted the Titans powers and faked being a father figure to Starfire in order for them to pressure Raven into accepting him and her birthright. When angered, Trigon displayed violent solutions to correct his plans.
