How Bahman joined the Tourney

Bahman didn’t participate in the Battle of Atropatene because he was in charge of defending the eastern border of Pars in Peshawar. A mounted courier arrived and informed him of the battle. Then Bahman found Kishward and told him that the Parsian forces got defeated and the Lusitanians are closing in on the walls of Ecbatana.

Bahman greets Arslan and his Party at Peshawar after they were being rescued by Kishward's troops.

Upon seeing a young dark-skinned girl using what appears to be dragons to fight dragons named Iris, bahman decides to take her to teach her how to use fists to handle dragons.
