Tletli coatls are vengeful, destructive coatls who wreak havoc on evildoers they deem unredeemable.1


A tletli coatl is a massive serpent whose iridescent scales seem to reflect light like an opal. Its feathered wings are shrouded in flames, ranging from orange at the base to blue at the tips. The flames can even burn creatures made of flame and are especially effective against undead, evil outsiders, and dragons. A typical tletli coatl is 35 feet long with a wingspan of 25 feet, and weighs almost 6,000 pounds.1


Tletli coatls do not hunt down individuals but target whole groups that they consider to be beyond redemption, and channel their righteous fury to destroy them, offering no salvation.1

Tletli coatls occasionally offer their feathers to mortals, who can use a tletli coatl's feather to summon the specific tletli coatl without the need for payment, if the tletli coatl approves of the service that the mortal asks it to do.1


Tletli coatls' rarity is legendary: they only appear in areas full of individuals whose crimes do not permit redemption. Such targets include towns filled with undead, forests plagued with evil fey, or portals that bring forth fiends.1


Tletli coatls serve as executioners, exacting punishment on irredeemable regions. Before doing so, they typically enlist mortals to extend a final chance for redemption for their quarries. If there are innocents in the company of the tletli coatl's targets, it might forewarn them by sending a charmed emissary, but does not hesitate to burn the entire group to ashes, as its prerogative is punishment, not mercy. Because of this, their masters usually send other celestials to accompany tletli coatls to evacuate or protect innocents during the tletli coatl's razing.1


Many tletli coatls serve good deities like Sarenrae or Torag, or empyreal lords such as Ragathiel, Dammerich, or Olheon.1


According to legends, tletli coatls were prominent on Golarion during the Age of Darkness, as they worked to fight the evils that rose at that time.1
