These winged serpents are greater cousins of the common couatl, servants of gods of goodness who direct the actions of their lesser kin and serve on more urgent or dangerous tasks. They watch from the shadows and influence them toward good deeds, spreading wisdom, peace, and cooperation with others. They also stand ready to intervene when the forces of evil gather their forces in great strength that overwhelms mortals and their allies alike. They are carnivorous, feeding on birds, mammals, and the occasional evil humanoid, monster, or fiend. Auwaz Couatl. The blue and green scales and feathers of these serpents resemble ocean waters. The smallest of couatls, they are 8 feet long with a 12-foot wingspan. They help those lost at sea find their way to safety, though when they find evil creatures adrift they work to ensure they remain lost and taken by the deep.
