NAME ORIGIN
    Dark is a word used to denote the absence of light or to describe something as "evil". The word comes from the Old English deorc. 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 supports a huge bull named Kujata, who supports 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.
