Tenets of Faith
The Ptarian Code is a draconic code of honor, created by the gold dragon Ptaris in the ancient past. It is similar to the codes of chivalry adopted by knightly orders of humanity. It includes paying homage to Bahamut (and sometimes the draconic deities Lendys and Tamara). Justice and Good above all. Honor and Fealty to the King. Honor and Respect to Righteous Innocence. Honor and Duty to the Justicemaker (Bahamut). Honor and Protection to the Lesser Races. Honor and Correction to the Enemies of Justice and Good. Honor and Forbearance for oneself.
Embertide, holy day of Bahamut. A day of remembrance, solemnity, and respect to those who have fallen in the defense of others. This day falls on 5 Girot every year. Clerics, worshippers, and paladins take the day to spend it in a temple and pray, and learn the names of people who fell in defense of others as well as their stories.
Divine Goals & Aspirations
Bahamut's dogma is based on justice, nobility, protection, and honor. He teaches his followers to always uphold the highest ideals of honor and justice; to be constantly vigilant against evil and to oppose it from all fronts; and to protect the weak, liberate the oppressed, and defend just order. Bahamut advocates a "greater justice" that included fighting against evil and toppling oppressive regimes. He also likes to reward strength of purpose and character in his followers.
Bahamut is stern and very disapproving of evil. He accepts no excuses for evil acts, and doesn't tolerate even minor offenses by evil creatures. In spite of his stance, he is also considered one of the most compassionate beings in the multiverse. He has limitless empathy for the downtrodden, the dispossessed, and the helpless. He usually prefers to polymorph those who have offended him instead of killing them.
Virtues & Personality perks
By draconic standards, Bahamut is neither vain or desirous of treasure. He values wisdom, knowledge, prophecies, and songs instead. However, he also pursues viciously (usually sending his champions and followers) those who try to steal the hoard from his palace as, after all, he is also the god of justice.
Vices & Personality flaws
Bahamut likes to prove the strength and worthiness of his followers by battling against them in his dragon form, halting the combat when his followers are injured or when they overcome him. However, he is prone to get carried away by his zeal, and has powerful healers on hand in case he gravely injured one of his followers in those battles.
Brother to Tiamat
They are brother and sister, though it is uncertain if they are literal counterparts to each other as the two halves of Io, or if they are born of Io and are literal siblings.

"Bahamut's Palace" is actually located on the plane of Celestia . This castle, built entirely from Bahamut's enormous treasure hoard, with walls made of mithral that reflected the eternal light of Celestia like a beacon on the horizon, and with windows composed of huge gemstones inlaid in silver and gold, was protected by Bahamut's seven gold great wyrms.
