Medjay - Scales of war
Called the Platinum Dragon, Bahamut is the god of justice, protection, nobility, and honor. Lawful good paladins often revere him, and metallic dragons worship him as the first of their kind. Monarchs are crowned in his name. He commands his followers thusly:
- Uphold the highest ideals of honor and justice.
- Be constantly vigilant against evil and oppose it on all fronts.
- Protect the weak, liberate the oppressed, and defend just order.
Legend has it that long ago during the War of Creation Bahamut and Tiamat were one and the same, a powerful dragon-god called Io.
Io created the dragons, great creatures of base metals, to protect the young races of the world against the primordials. Drawing power from the Elemental Chaos to power his creation, Io simultaneously linked them with the divinity of the Astral Sea to keep them rooted in the pursuit of justice and honor.
During a battle with the vicious primordial Erek-Hus, Io was split down the middle and from the two halves grew the twin dragon gods: Bahamut from the right side and Tiamat from the left. Io’s qualities were split between the two: his desire for justice and the protection of creation went to Bahamut, while his arrogance and greed were embodied in Tiamat.
The Order of the Silver Talon were a group of militant paladins devoted to Bahamut.
