Cihua Couatl are a dualistic Arcadian deity, patron of those who protect others for the cause of good and of midwives taking care of children. They teach that conflict cannot be avoided, and one must be ready to help those who cannot defend themselves, whether by taking arms, encouraging help, or teaching kindness; caring for others makes everyone stronger.[1]

Appearance and emissaries

Cihua Couatl consist of a chicome and a tletli couatl sharing the same body and both are of fluid gender. Each has its own tail and head, but they share the same arms, one carrying a shield and the other carrying a shortspear. Their constant shift between the roles of attacker and defender, as well as gender, signifies that everyone can care for and protect others.[1]

Church of Cihua Couatl

Cihua Couatl are worshipped by couatls, healers, and warriors. They are adept at strategy and tactics and favour quick, decisive action, allowing them to swiftly end conflicts with minimal casualties on both sides.[1]
