A couatl is a legendary celestial. These feathered serpents are seen as divine creatures that seek to aid mortals or protect them from great evils. Although they are not gods themselves, couatls possess a great number of magical and mental powers, leading them to be worshiped as divine beings by mortals found in the jungles realms that they inhabit.

Couatls are known for their beauty, magic, and virtue. Their intelligence and devotion to goodness often leads them to ally with like-minded heroes.

A couatl appears to be a large serpent with feathered wings. These wings are multi-colored, taking on any color of the rainbow, although color patterns vary by individual couatl. They are around 12 feet in length and weigh about 1,800 pounds (180 bulk).
