Description: BAHAMUT CAN CREATE AN ASPECT OF HIMSELF from the willing sacrifice of a powerful metallic dragon worshiper. The dragon dies, but rises anew as an aspect of the Platinum Dragon itself, remembering all of its previous life and now utterly bound to Bahamut. Bahamut prefers for his dragon worshipers to remain dragons rather than sacrificing themselves in this manner, but he sometimes uses aspects as longterm guardians, ambassadors for crucial diplomatic efforts, or extraplanar authorities who bring to justice villains too powerful for anything less than an aspect of the god of justice.
