Strategies and TacticsEdit

Coutlsaurs are skilled tacticians, attacking in concert with one another and laying traps for enemies. If given time to prepare, a coutlsaur will cast bless on itself and as many allies as possible, while each warrior will cast protection from evil on itself. They typically attack from the air, throwing javelins and other missiles, before closing in for melee combat. If seriously injured, a coutlsaur will attempt to fly out of combat, but only if it feels that fleeing will not jeopardize the safety of its allies.


Environment: Coutlsaurs prefer dense rainforests and warm mountainous terrain, typically residing in hidden jungle cities or secluded volcanic citadels.

Typical Physical Characteristics: Coutlsaurs are physically imposing, averaging about seven feet tall, with a wingspan of about nine feet. Their wings, crest, and tail sport iridescent rainbow feathers, with the rest of their body covered in small scales of indigo, blue, and green. Their eyes are usually a deep amber, violet, or silver color, with no visible pupils.

Alignment: Coutlsaurs tend towards lawful good on either or both alignment axis, much like their couatl ancestors, and thus are usually lawful good, lawful neutral, or neutral good. Some chaotic good individuals exist, but evil coutlsaurs are as rare as they are dangerous.
