Chronicles of Khaldun: Bread and Circuses
The Old Man with the Canaries
Avatar of Bahamut
According to the tales, Bahamut, the Platinum Dragon, sometimes walks the world in the form of an old man accompanied by seven yellow canaries. If threatened, these canaries will transform into seven gold dragons to defend him.
He is often kindly and helps travelers he meets on the road — a humanoid face to speak with the cosmic power of the deities.
