Legion Log
Rookie Science Police officer Roon Drvon (serial number SPXX342) came to the attention of the Legion of Super-Heroes soon after their archenemy Universo escaped from prison. A few days after Universo had escaped Earth, Dvron appeared at their headquarters unannounced. Dvron was quickly noticed by their intruder alarms and apprehended by would-be SP officer himself, Colossal Boy. Dvron then strongly requested that he be allowed to accompany the Legion on their hunt for Universo, telling them that Universo had been responsible for the death of his partner. He was allowed to accompany them.

Once on the mission, however, Dvron actually stopped the Legion from capturing Universo when they had the opportunity. He then told them the truth: that Universo had not killed his partner, but had actually saved Dvron's life. Feeling that he had now paid off this obligation to Universo, Dvron then helped the Legion actually capture him.

A year later, Dvron again tried to sneak into the Legion headquarters when he thought no one would be there (during Chemical King's funeral) but was again apprehended by their security devices. This time Dvron's tampering with the security devices was responsible for capturing Reserve Member Bouncing Boy as well. However, because this accidental imprisonment eventually caused Bouncing Boy to regain his lost bouncing abilities, he did not hold this incident against him.

As an Earth SP officer with connections to the Legion, Dvron was assigned to investigate the murder attempt of Legion Academy student Laurel Kent. Although he spent several long hours in trying to track down the Kryptonite bullet and any would be motive or suspect, Dvron was never able to "crack the case." He did succeed in becoming life-long friends with various Academy students, such as Magnetic Kid.

Dvron showed no particular aptitude for leadership or for detective work. Although he remained stationed on Earth, he did not seem to move up the ranks.

Dvron was the lead officer sent to investigate the first occurrence of sorcery appearing on Earth; this placed him in the epicenter of what became the Magic War. As science faltered, Dvron was ready to help control the frightened mobs during the worst of the chaos. After the menace was disposed of and scientific law was re-established, Dvron was ready and willing to help rebuild Earth.

By the 5-Years-Later era, Dvron has been promoted to captain.

Dvron appears in neither the Reboot, nor Threeboot.

After Infinite Crisis, Dvron's original history has presumably been more or less restored. His current rank is that of lieutenant.
