    Bahamut was the King of the Dragons living in the Dragon Caves beneath the Cardian Islands. From his throne room in the largest cave, he would grant true honors to those who would prove their courage and strength by successfully bringing back proof of completing the Citadel of Trials. The Warriors of Light encountered Bahamut during their quest to restore the Crystals. Taking his challenge, the Warriors of Light braved their way through the Citadel and retrieved the Rat's Tail, which Bahamut accepted as their proof of courage. Bahamut conferred upon the Warriors of Light new ranks and titles, giving them the true honor that is due to the Crystal bearers.

NAME ORIGIN
    Bahamut is the name of a giant, omnipotent being in Arabian mythology. It is said to be so huge that human eyes cannot look upon it. It resides in a vast sea called the Adwad. Bahamut rides on a giant whale creature called the Liwash, and carries a huge bull named Kujata, who holds a ruby, atop which stands an angel who supports the seven heavens. The depiction of Bahamut as a dragon stems from the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game where Bahamut is a "good" dragon, in opposition to Tiamat, the "evil" dragon.
