Origin

Gladiator Bahamdia is based on the Bahamut or Bahamoot, a legendary creature from Arabian mythology. Known as the Arabian version of the Behemoth, the Bahamut is a ginormous fish that is said to "support the Earth"; so gigantic that humans are unable to see it, at all. While it is primarily a vast fish, a bull called Kujuta sits atop of it, with a ruby mountain on Kujuta and an angel on the ruby mountain that holds and supports the "seven Earths". While there are different interpretations of what lays over the Bahamut, it is also said to have layers of suffocating winds, a veil of darkness and mist beneath it.

Name origin

Gladiator refers to the Roman warriors of ancient Rome that dueled one-another or animals in the Colosseum as "entertainment" by the rulers and citizens of the ancient civilization. Along with donning armour and wielding weapons for battle, the fights were quite gruesome as the objective was a "fight to the death", as each gladiator attempted to kill the other to claim victory.

Interestingly, gladiator comes from "gladius" which is the Latin word for "sword". So in essence; gladiator literally means "swordsman".
