The tomb was created as a resting place for Darill, Setzer's girlfriend, who died after she crashed her airship, the Falcon, while racing it around the world against Setzer and his Blackjack. When Setzer found the wreckage, he rebuilt the Falcon and put it to rest underneath the tomb, although it is uncertain whether Darill herself is actually buried there.
It is possible that Setzer himself built the tomb, as he intended to give Darill a decent burial and hide the Falcon after her untimely demise, at an unspecified timeline prior to the events in Final Fantasy VI. Presumably after having done this, Setzer would go on to live his "happy-go-lucky" lifestyle and the tomb, now left unattended, would eventually become a haven for passing monsters due to its abandoned state. It is unknown why Dullahan would take up residence here - unless, until the party kills him, Dullahan could have been tormenting Darill in the afterlife the whole time Setzer was grieving over the loss of her.
At one point the player has the option of inscribing a series of seemingly nonsensical phrases on four blank tombstones. Inputting the phrases in the correct order, ERAU QSSI DLRO WEHT ("The World is Square" backwards), will reveal a clue about the location of the Growth Egg within the dungeon. In the Japanese version, the fragments read KANI SURA YOYA TOMO in katakana, and the whole phrase looks like "Tomo yo, yasuraka ni" (ともよ やすらかに lit. Rest in peace, my friend).
