The Lair of the Father on the World Map.

Lair of the Father (幻獣神の洞窟, Genjūshin no Dōkutsu?, lit. Cave of the Phantom Beast God), also known as Cave Bahamut, Cave of Bahamut or Cave of the Phantom God, is a dungeon in Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It is the lair of Bahamut, Hallowed Father of the Eidolons.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Final Fantasy IVEdit

The party can visit the cave as soon as they acquire the Lunar Whale and fly to the Red Moon. At three points the path is blocked by a Behemoth in an inescapable set encounter. Once Bahamut is beaten at the end of the dungeon, Rydia can summon him in battle.

The After YearsEdit

After Fusoya and Golbez investigate the Impact Crater and fight the Mysterious Girl and Asura, Fusoya grows concerned for Bahamut's fate with the girl's power to control Eidolons. The two enter the Lair of the Father to check on him, and find him petrified. Instead of Behemoths, Count Malboro block the path at points.
