D&D - War of the Planes
Bahamut is the God of good dragons. He lives on another plain and is one half of another god that was split in two. The other half, Tiamat, is his arch rival. They have been battling for as long as anyone can remember.
Bahamut is known to visit the mortal realm from time to time in the form of an old man surrounded by canaries.
He has spoken to the group once directly at the lighthouse on the forbidden island. At that time he has told the group that the War of the planes has begun. He does not know how this will turn out, but he is concerned for the mortal realm. He has faith in the group, as they are the only ones who can complete their task. He advised them that their path will be laid in front of them, but only they can make the choice to follow it.
He then disappeared.
