Kevin Harmon is a fanfictional character in the Digimon Cinematic Sagas. He is one of the main characters in the DigiDestined Saga.
Kevin was born in 1983 to Robert and Laura Harmon. Despite being from a rich family, but he and his father treat every human equally and are seeking to help them find their potentials. Kevin was only one year old, when his father started the worldwide Project: Digital Life for developing extremely advanced artificial intelligence. When Kevin was 7 years old, his father allowed him to see the project with his own eyes. But during that same day, there happened an accident that destroyed most of the laboratory and made the project being officially quit. Kevin helped his father to continue the project in secret.
During 90s, Kevin met Audrey Clinton, who became his girlfriend and eventually his wife. Kevin has also a younger brother named Martin who felt that the project was childish and would endanger the mankind. In 2000, Martin ran away from home and stole some money from Streamix Corporation's accounts. In 2005, when Kevin and Audrey were married and their son Edmund was only one year old, he and his son were among the four people who were able to see the imperfect temporary Bio-Emergence of Parrotmon into Los Angeles. This led both of hem eventually to be chosen as members of the DigiDestined, Kevin the first adult one. They were soon contacted by the digital human-like entities who claimed the Harmon family to have destiny that would protect both the human world and the world of the "Digimon" from a great threat.
Kevin is first seen in the prologue flashback which explained how he first got involved into his father's project. 25 years later, Kevin is one of the executives of Streamix Corporation in Los Angeles and makes a visit into a middle school where Troy Dawkins, Jake Thacher, Seamus Maitland and Miyuki Koharuno are studying. The four children, as well as Kevin and his family witness the Bio-Emergence Bog reappear, while Kevin, Edmund and the four middle school student get their Digivices.
Kevin and Edmund had found two small Digimon named Mochimon and Tokomon on their home. Later at night, when Kuwagamon Bio-Emerges to the real world, the Harmons wake up and call the other four children to assist them. Their partners Digivolve into their Rookie forms, with Mochimon Digivolving into Tentomon and Tokomon Digivolving into Patamon, and they destroy a Black Gear controlling Kuwagamon who then returns to the Digital World. Kevin then asks the children to arrive into the Streamix building tomorrow. But in the morning, the Black Gears attacked them and disrupted the barrier between the real world and the Digital World. The five children were sent into the Digital World.
FBI is alerted of this and led by Richard Gardner, they arrive to Kevin's office call the parents of the missing children there as well. Kevin introduces the DigiMessenger and DigiLocate applications. He also shows the secret video about the Project: Digital Life. Kevin stays in the office, until he and Tentomon decide to go the Digital World to help the children who are attacked Leomon controlled by several Black Gears. One Digi-Gate opens on its own and sends Kevin and Tentomon through it to help the children. They used the light of the Digivices to free Leomon. Then Leomon, along with Elecmon, told about the origins of the battles between good and evil in the Digital World. They decided to follow the evil tyrant of the File Island, Devimon and his evil forces to Kyoto, Japan.
During the first phase of the battle, Kevin, Seamus and Leomon were trying to destroy Bakemon forces as well as free Andromon and Teddymon from the Black Gears. After they were defeated, Troy's group arrived to join them and faced Devimon who had grown himself into large size. Leomon and the Partner Digimon were not powerful enough to defeat him. But Devimon was later destroyed by Patamon's Champion form Angemon when he sacrificed himself and transformed into a Digi-Egg to wait for a rebirth. After Leomon had taken Angemon's Digi-Egg to Elecmon, Kevin decided to send the traumatized Edmund to his grandfather to heal from his depression and sadness.
After the battle, Kevin and the other executives started to form a special office for the DigiDestined to use as headquarters. One month after the battle, Kevin informed Troy, Jake, Seamus and Miyuki that the headquarters were now complete, so they arrived to take a look and prepare for searching ways to defeat enemies that would be even more powerful than Devimon.
Eight months later, Kevin was not pleased that not all governments had accepted the DigiDestined as the heroes, but was confident that they will come to accept it in time. He managed to restore the connection to a Digital Agent named Benjamin who sent him and the younger DigiDestined the Tags and told them about Crests, artifacts needed for Digivolving the Partner Digimon into Ultimate Level.
When a Shellmon Bio-Emerged into the real world, a mysterious person known as the DigiShadow De-Digivolved some of the other Partner Digimon into their lesser forms. And Yuggoth, a weapon developed by an organization named Webmasters, wounded them severely and destroyed Shellmon. Along with Seamus, Kevin tried to stop Troyfrom making any rash decisions, but they failed and get Digivolved into Ultimate Level by putting himself in danger on purpose. But this had nearly catastrophic consequences: Greymon Dark Digivolved into SkullGreymon and went rampage. The rampage, however, didn't last long and soon SkullGreymon De-Digivolved into Koromon.
After the incident, Troy was ashamed of what he had caused and Kevin tried convince him let go of it. Kevin also showed having received a second partner Digimon named Upamon, along with the second Digivice, referred by Benjamin as "D-3", and an object known as the Digimental of Knowledge. He, along with Troy, Tentomon, Upamon and Koromon, traveled to the Server Continent of the Digital World, while the others were searching for the other missing D-3 Digivices and Digimentals. Koromon Digivolved back into Agumon and Upamon Digivolved into Armadimon. Soon after that, they were captured by the Gazimon who were servants of Etemon, the evil Digimon who had used Dark Network to over parts of the Server Continent. When they tried to escape, Armadimon Armor Digivoled with the Digimental of Knowledge into Digmon. Kevin tried to convine Troy to let Agumon Digivolve, but Troy was not able to do it. In the real world, they joined the other DigiDestined in Oklahoma City where Troy's cousin Daniel "Dan" Linwood was revealed to be a new DigiDestined with a partner named Veemon.
Kevin told the others about his troubled past with brother Martin Harmon who considered the Digimon being a threat to mankind and finally ran away from home with money stolen from the Streamix Corporation. Kevin had seen nightmares about it in few last nights, and thought Martin being a member of the Webmasters. It was confirmed to be true, when Martin internationally revealed himself as the Director of the Webmasters and activated a new weapon named Shaggai. But Etemon's forces took over and attacked Oklahoma City. Kevin, Troy and Dan to the System Pyramids where a Digimon named Nanomon was forced to maintain the Dark Network. Then he and Dan located the secret facility of the Webmasters and tried to talk some sense to his brother, but no avail.
When Nanomon sacrificed himself in attempt to destroy Etemon and the Dark Network, Kevin and the other DigiDestined found out that Etemon survived and used the data stolen from the Webmasters to create Composition Digimon named Chimairamon. They were joined in the battle by Wei Xueqi who was released from a brainwashing that turned him into the DigiShadow. Kevin witnessed how Veemon Armor Digivolved into Magnamon with the Golden Digimental of Miracles to destroy Chimairamon, and how MetalGreymon and WereGarurumon destroyed Etemon once and for all. After the battle, Kevin also managed make Martin understand the error of his ways.
After the other Webmasters around the world were arrested, Benjamin took back the Digimental of Knowledge from Kevin. Kevin also revealed that he had received his own Crest: the Crest of Knowledge. He had managed to find balance between his desire for knowledge and his social life. Kevin and the others were also happy that Edmund and Patamon had rejoined the DigiDestined.
Two years later, Kevin and the other DigiDestined were fighting against Mammon and successfully defeated him, which was partly thanks him using the Crest of Knowledge he had learned to use to make Tentomon Digivolve into AtlasKabuterimon. The next day, she sees the Dark Spires having appeared into the real world and is invited to the house in the Digital World where Benjamin and his colleague Gennai are hiding. He was also informed about a disappearance of a girl named Gia Avilés in New Mexico.
After the attack of Vamdemon's forces, Kevin and the others decided to use the gate in Vamdemon's castle to travel to both the human world and the Dark Ocean. They meet a tortured Digimon named Tailmon who initially attacks the DigiDestined. Tailmon calms down and explains that she was just mad due to suffering she endured.
Kevin joins the group that goes into the Dark Ocean. He, along with Miyuki and Edmund, meets Dagomon, ruler of that world, who keeps a DigiDestined called Gia Avilés (whose Partner Digimon Tailmon is revealed to be) as well as Martin as their slaves. Dagomon refused to free them and Kevin's group starts to fight against Dagomon. After Aquilamon and Tailmon learned to DNA Digivolve into Silphymon, they were able to keep Dagomon occupied until they manage to escape to Paris, to confront Vamdemon.
During the final battle, Kevin and his son manage to find a connection between their D-3 Digivices to allow Ankylomon and Angemon to DNA Digivolve into Shakoukimon and help the other Partner Digimon to defeat Vamdemon. But Vamdemon drains the power of Dark Spires to be reborn as BelialVamdemon. Kevin witnesses how an orb full of energy given by the Digimon Sovereigns gives Agumon, Gabumon, Veemon and Wormmon to Digivolve into WarGreymon, MetalGarurumon and Imperialdramon. During the final battle against BelialVamdemon, Kevin was temporarily trapped into an illusion where he saw his father, wife and son killed by Martin. But he and the others were brought back to their senses by Dan who was not affected by the illusions. After BelialVamdemon's body was destroyed, Martin committed a suicide while destroying his spirit. This made Kevin deeply saddened. At the end of the summer, before the international speech given by his father, he and the other DigiDestined attended Martin's funeral.
A year after the battle against Vamdemon, Kevin and his father were fired from their positions on the Streamix Corporation. Soon they met Chuumon, a small Digimon who informed about the existence of the Chaotic Masters and the cataclysmic events they had started in the Digital World. The DigiDestined were subsequently attacked and captured by them. Agent Gardner's sacrifice and Chuumon's help allowed them to escape.
After the evacuation, Kevin witnessed how there began tensions between Troy and Seamus. In order to make them stop the argument, Kevin started to make some research of the abilities of the Partner Digimon in order to develop a strategy to defeat the Masters. But the argument between Troy and Seamus ended up into fight against each other, along with WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon. Kevin knew that only a Digimon of Mega Level would succeed in doing so, and Imperialdramon was unable to do it because of SkullSatamon's interference. The fight was finally interrupted by the Digimon Sovereigns who temporarily took the minds of the DigiDestined into the Digital World to hear full story about why they were chosen.
While the DigiDestined were separated in three groups, Kevin's group fought in Cape Town, South Africa, against MetalSeadramon's forces who invaded the city. While Troy and WarGreymon faced MetalSeadramon, Kevin and AtlasKabuterimon helped Kevin and Garudamon to defeat Scorpiomon while Edmund and Shakoukimon faced AmmoGesomon. After Scorpiomon's defeat, Kevin and AtlasKabuterimon kept fighting against Scubamon soldiers, until Troy and WarGreymon defeated MetalSeadramon. They were also informed about Pinocchimon's defeat. Kevin's group then prepared to strike against Machinedramon.
Kevin was in the evacuation point of the citizen of Los Angeles and Oklahoma City with several military personnel, creating virus to sabotage the security system of Machinedramon's bunker base. After Kevin and Edmund had used the virus, they went to Oklahoma City to assist a team led by Miyuki and Gia to stop Megadramon and Gigadramon from destroying the entire city. The battle was won after WarGreymon and Imperialdramon defeated Machinedramon.
All the major DigiDestined then met in the evacuation point of the citizens of Los Angeles where Kevin and Edmund were reunited with Audrey. When the three legions of Menacemon sent by Piemon, the last Chaotic Master, emerged into the real world, Kevin and Edmund took leadership of the team of DigiDestined who would face the legion led by WickedTeddymon in Moscow. Before leaving, he was eager to realize that his son had fell in love with Gia.
WickedTeddy wasn't very powerful opponent, but with the black energy whip given by Piemon, he was able to give much of a challenge to AtlasKabuterimon and Shakoukimon. After the commanders of the legions were defeated, the battle continued solely in Los Angeles. Kevin and most of the DigiDestined were made powerless by Piemon's new techniques. Kevin and the other were healed by HolyAngemon (Patamon's true Ultimate form) after which the DigiDestined fought against Piemon with full power. But after Piemon was defeated, every one of the Holy Stones which protected the worlds from distortions were destroyed. This allowed Piemon's master, Apocalymon leave the space closed the Wall of Fire and threaten to corrupt the worlds forever.
Apocalymon was incredibly powerful and he was able to De-Digivolve every Partner Digimon and destroy every Digivice and Crest. Kevin and the others were also about to be deleted by Apocalymon until the Digivices and Crests were restored. Kevin also witnessed how the power from every Digivice in the world allowed WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon to Digivolve into Omegamon and Imperialdramon to change into Paladin Mode. The two powerful Digimon weakened Apocalymon's powers. And the battle ended when Kevin and the others sacrificed their Crests to recreate the seal around the Digi-Eggs of the Seven Great Demon Lords (the original source of darkness which had created Apocalymon) and used their Digivices to kill Apocalymon once and for all. But after Apocalymon's defeat, Kevin was forced to see his father sacrifice himself to restore the balance between the worlds. He was also forced to be separated from Tentomon and Armadimon because the natural laws of the worlds didn't allow the Digimon to say in the real world or humans to stay in the Digital World.
In 2021, Kevin had moved with his family into Washington and assumed the position of a chairman of the leading council of the Worldwide Network of the DigiDestined (W.N.D.D.), an organization formed by all DigiDestined in the entire world with help of Benjamin and his colleagues. He summoned every DigiDestined around the world to witness the first test of the balanced Digi-Gate which allow traveling between the worlds without causing distortions. It is assumed that Kevin was reunited with Tentomon and Armadimon after the gate was officially put in use as a travel method.
This was Kevin's only appearance in the Legendary Tamers Saga. After the Deva had taken Calumon into the Digital World and when the disbanded W.N.D.D. was decided to be replaced by a new organization, Kevin, who visited the White House along with the Tamers, gave Harold Thompson the plans of the original Digi-Arches so that the Tamers could build new ones.
Seamus was not seen personally in the film, but he was mentioned to have sent reinforcements to assist the Tamers in the final battle against D-Reaper. Image of him was seen in the epilogue, mentioning how he had won several science prizes, thanks to his discoveries.
In the Arc 1, Kevin Harmon was seen as a child. In the first two episodes, he was only 3 years old child who was just learning to speak. In the two-parted episode "The Confrontation", he was 7 years old and was allowed to visit father's workplace for the first time. His role was just like in the opening of Digimon: First Adventure.
In the Arc 2, Kevin was a teenager. In 1995, his mother died in terminal illness which led to his hard relationship with his brother Martin. It was also revealed that he and Audrey had known each other from ever since they started school. But after their friendship was endangered by Kevin's activities helping his father with the research of the Digimon, he revealed Audrey everything and their friendship soon turned into a romantic relationship. Another one of Kevin's worst days in his youth was in January 2000 when Martin became aware of the existence of the Digimon and ran away from home.
In the Arc 3, Kevin had moved into his own apartment and working at the Streamix Corporation while studying in college. Despite being only 20 years old, he was certain that Audrey was the true love of his life. They married in late 2003 and Audrey was revealed to be pregnant. Their son Edmund was born in 2004 and they moved into Los Angeles. In 2007, he had become one of the executives in Streamix Corporation's Los Angeles office. He also became part of the plan of the company and the government to prepare for possible future threats from the Digital World.
- Kevin was created to be a mentor to the initial members of the DigiDestined. This was an idea that was CAJH used on his fan fictions at least once before this project. Kevin was chosen to have Tentomon as his partner, while his knowledge of information technology and software programming was combined with a thirst for more knowledge to make the character have aspects of Koushiro "Izzy" Izumi whose partner was also Tentomon. The main differences of the two characters are their age, Kevin being raised fully by his biological parents, and Kevin being more social.
- Kevin's son Edmund is the youngest member of the initial DigiDestined team and is based Takeru "T.K." Takaishi. In Digimon Adventure, T.K. was younger brother of Yamato "Matt" Ishida and they were never related to Izzy.
- Kevin was first considered as a teacher at Troy Dawkins' middle school, but this was changed during production.
- Kevin was decided to have two partners for two reasons: to make Armadimon appear as the other Digimon capable for Armor Digivolution along with Veemon, and to make yellow D-3 Digivice appear along with the five other original D-3 Digivices.
