His natural form was that of a platinum dragonsaid by many to be the only one of his kind. In his natural form, Bahamut was a massive dragon approximately feet 55 meters long, with a tail the same length as his body,  with platinum scales tougher than any shield  said by some to be virtually indestructible that glowed with a faint blue sheen,  and blue eyes, the exact color of which was hard to specify and may have depended on Bahamut's mood.
When he wished to wander the mortal worldhe usually took the appearance of an old human or demihuman dressed in peasant robes accompanied by seven canaries. They also believed that while Bahamut was fond of his old man guise, he had other guises as well.
Other recorded guises included that of a prince with a carriage drawn by seven horses, an urchin accompanied by seven friends, and a beggar followed by seven dogs. Bahamut's favored food was the early morning frost on blades of grass, honey, and daisy petals.
He was able to eat anything, however, and he needed no sustenance while in his palace. Myths claimed that the great fortified castle that Bahamut called home was somewhere "behind the east wind" and many scholars believed Bahamut's castle was located on the Elemental Plane of Air. Bahamut was stern and very disapproving of evil, always arguing with Asgorath about his crusade against it.
He accepted no excuses for evil acts, and didn't tolerate even minor offenses by evil creatures. In spite of his stance, he was also considered one of the most compassionate beings in the multiverse. He had limitless empathy for the downtrodden, the dispossessed, and the helpless. By draconic standards, Bahamut was neither vain nor desirous of treasure. He valued wisdom, knowledge, prophecies, and songs instead.
Bahamut also liked to prove the strength and worthiness of his followers by battling against them in his dragon form, halting the combat when his followers were injured or when they overcame him.
However, he was prone to get carried away by his zeal, and had powerful healers on hand in case he had gravely injured one of his followers in those battles.
While his court comprised only gold dragons, Bahamut enjoyed the company of all good dragons, delighting in their differences and varied personalities. Bahamut spent half of his time traveling the Material plane 's many worlds including Toril in the guise of an old man. He always tried to assess the worthiness—viewed through a lens of justice, nobility, and honor—of everyone he met while traveling.

Good-aligned clerics and paladins usually took pilgrimages to his castle, seeking to receive the blessings of the Platinum Dragon. Bahamut was ever watchful against the machinations of Tiamat,  and never interfered in the affairs of mortal creatures unless his actions could also stop her evil schemes. Bahamut was unable to turn his back on any good creatures that were in need, however, even if Tiamat wasn't involved. But he preferred to help them in indirect ways, such as giving them useful information, needed advice that bordered on prophecy, a safe refuge, or healing and bolstering them with his powerful magic.
Bahamut disdained combat, and he preferred to talk with his opponents and convince them to surrender using his legendary diplomatic skills. Despite his aversion to battle, he was easily capable of defending himself. A third special attack was his roar, which was so powerful that it could disintegrate creatures or objects within feet 30 meters. If facing off against more powerful creatures, this roar would still permanently deafen those who weren't turned to dust.
Also, Bahamut had the ability to see invisible beings and objects, and to breathe underwater indefinitely. Likewise, he could freely use his breath weapons or cast spells while underwater.
Bahamut was able to create aspects of himself from the willing sacrifice of a powerful metallic dragon worshiper. While the dragon died during the ritual, the newly created aspect remembered all of its previous life and was utterly bound to Bahamut's will forever after. They were not as powerful as Bahamut's normal avatars, however.
Occasionally, aspects of Bahamut arose spontaneously on Celestia or a closely related plane.As powerful as this is, this isn't the only draconic god in the pantheon.

Son of Io, he was hatched from an egg, and did not spontaneously generate from pure belief as some other gods. Furthermore, his divine power is not derived from worship at all- he is self existant and self powerful, needing no one to even remember his name to retain his full potential.
Instead, his divine energies were syphoned from the universe itself over the course of his many eons of life.
His scales are more than perfect mirrors, reflecting every nuance of those who gaze into them, right down to their very souls. He glows even in the dimmest light, seeming to amplify any thing that is good. His cat-like eyes are stark blue, varying in hue from the icy-cold indigo of a glacier, to the deep azure or cerulean glow of the sky.

He forgives easily, yet has no tolerance for evil in any form. Little is known about Bahamut's personal history except from the account's of others. Tiamat blames him personally for the exile of her first husband, though the truth of this is debatable.
It is known that he has personally befriended seven golden dragons of great wyrm status, who come to his call and do his bidding.
