Any kind of Bahamut is bad. But one of the Lunar variety? And only one character to fight him with? Yeah, that's the making for a very tough fight. His attack sequence is really easy. 3… 2… 1…. Mega Flare. He'll counter every attack you throw at him with a pretty heavy physical strike. His flare takes away pretty much 5000 every time.
Timing is going to be everything in this battle. It'll be important to use Jump just in time to miss the Mega Flare. The problem is Bahamut has incredible speed meaning if you try to jump when he's at 1, you're in trouble as he'll blow the Mega Flare in your face. If you aren't completely dead from the flare, use an Elixir on yourself. Use the Megalixirs if necessary. You may end up using a bunch of them, so don't be shy. This is the fight you save them for. If you consistently stay completely fueled and time Jump just right, you'll have a good game plan. Unfortunately, Lunar Bahamut has no sympathy that it's only Kain battling, so like his other lunar brethren, he has a buttload of HP. If you don't have a nice stockpile of Elixirs and Megalixirs, this may be a very hard bout.
There is one huge helper if you have it, though. If you have a Light Curtain or Lunar Curtain in your inventory, that will be the difference maker. These certain items cast Reflect on the user. If you use this, it'll bounce Mega Flare off of Kain and smack a good portion of HP off of himself. But if you're fresh out of these curtains, then I wish you the best of luck. Remember, time your jumps, and use Elixirs like it's going out of style.
