Couatl are large, flying snake creatures which live very quiet and mysterious lives in the elven/eastern jungle. They have taken a keen interest in magic and faith, and have adopted literacy as a method of communication of their ideas to faraway places. They are fond of Hesed, the god of mercy.
Their gift is that of philosophy, and it is something at which they excel. It could be said that the couatl have a deeper understanding of the essential principles of reality, knowledge and existence to a point where they could be considered truly enlightened. This does not mean, of course, that they know everything – far from it, given their cloistered life in the jungles of Manxiga. But rather it means that they can make perfect sense of all things that happen, and their place with all other things. They can see a logic, reason and unified understanding of the world and its workings.
