Kadon was an ancient necromancer and the founder of the Strygos Empire, a human civilisation that thrived long ago before the time of Sigmar. As a young man, Kadon was a shaman, and also the young leader of the Lodringen tribe. After discovering the Crown of Sorcery (which was made by Nagash, the first necromancer) clutched in the hand of the corpse of King Alcadizaar of Khemri on the banks of the Blind River, he became obsessed by death and the magic of necromancy.

Filled with the corrupting power of the crown, Kadon commanded his people to build a magnificent tomb for Alcadizaar and around that tomb, their settlement evolved into a city that came to be called Mourkain, Kadon expanded the lands around the temple to build the civilization of Strygos. With the covert assistance of Ushoran, first of the Strigoi bloodline of vampires, Kadon saw the city grow over the years into an empire which, at its height, stretched from the Marshes of Madness all the way to the Black Gulf. Kadon developed and refined the art of necromancy to further Nagash's work, and he created several powerful magical artefacts dedicated to the raising and controlling of the Undead, many of which can still be found scattered throughout the world. Some have found their way into the hands of mighty heroes, while some remain hidden in remote lairs, waiting for adventurers to stumble across them.

Ushoran eventually slew Kadon and claimed Mourkain and the Strygos Empire for himself.
