Dagon prefers to use his trident in battle but can attack with his powerful fists if he so chooses. One of his favorite tactics is to grab an air-breathing opponent and dive as deep as he can in the waters where he holds the victim until it drowns.

Unique Item: Embrace of the Uncaring Sea
On a successful critical hit, the target must make a DC 39 Fortitude save or begin to drown. This affects even creatures that can ordinarily breathe underwater or are under the effects of a water breathing spell.
The target is allowed a new saving throw each round. The drowning continues until either the target is dead, a successful save is made, or the effect is successfully dispelled (CL 30th). Even if the effect is successfully removed, another critical hit starts it once again. The save DC is Constitution-based and includes a +10 racial bonus when used by Dagon.
Servants of Dagon
Followers of Dagon are mermen, locathah, sahuagin, lizardfolk, skum, and evil humanoids that revere the seas and oceans. Devout followers of Dagon are called Scaled Ones and must sign a pact of evil with Dagon.
Scaled Ones can receive spells from Dagon and are granted access to two of the following domains:
Dagon is the demon prince of sea creatures. He is worshiped as a deity by legions of sahuagin, locathah, skum, lizardfolk, tritons (those that have accepted the ways of evil), and some merfolk. His Abyssal lair is not unlike the Elemental Planes of Water in that it is composed entirely of water. Pockets of air, though, are rumored to be trapped in invisible “bubbles” throughout his lair (so as to allow the non-water breathing demons to exist comfortably). Dagon makes his home in a great underwater iron citadel called Thos located in the deepest recesses of his home plane.
Dagon appears as a 10-foot tall merman and weighs about 2,000 pounds. He can move on land using his fists to drag or pull his body, but prefers to remain in water whenever possible.
