Monkey D. Dragon is the son of the Marine Admiral Monkey D. Garp. He was born in the Goa Kingdom. This is the only known information we know about Dragon's early childhood.
Dragon was present during Roger's execution, and soon after that, he had formed the Revolutionary Army with the aim of opposing the World Government. Over time, his ideas spread throughout the world and one by one he started getting support from people of different countries. Soon, he earned the name 'World's Worst Criminal'.
When Dragon went back to his home i.e. the Goa Kingdom, he saw the Gray Terminal burning. Sabo begged him to save them and expressed his shame of belonging to the noble blood. Dragon immediately went to save the people and embarrass the government in the process, by allowing the people from Trash Mountain to join him too.
When Sabo was just beginning to start on his pirate journey, his ship was obliterated by a World Noble and Dragon saved him in time and brought him to his ship. After Sabo regained consciousness, he temporarily suffered from memory loss. Even though Dragon told him about his noble bloodline, Sabo insisted on staying with the revolutionaries and did not want to return. Thus, his life as a part of the Revolutionary Army began. Dragon trained him directly everyday.
As the Supreme Commander of the Revolutionary Army, Dragon had great authority over a lot of active paramilitary forces, which became a threat to the world government in a span of only a few years. Due to Dragon's actions, he was named the world's worst criminal. He has managed to escape even though he is being chased by the powerful marine admirals. He is greatly feared and respected by a lot of people in the world.
Very little is known about his combat abilities, but he is known to be able to combat and train extremely powerful army officials who we see in battle from time to time.
