Couatls speak Common, Draconic, and Celestial and also have
the power of telepathy.
A couatl seldom attacks without provocation, though it always
attacks evildoers caught red-handed. Since it is highly
intelligent, a couatl usually casts spells from a distance before
closing. If more than one couatl is involved, they discuss their
strategy before a battle.
Spells: A couatl casts spells as a 9th-level sorcerer, except
that it does not need material components. It can also cast
spells from the cleric list and from the Air, Good, and Law
domains as arcane spells.

Poison (Ex): Bite, Fortitude save (DC 16); initial damage 2d4
temporary Strength, secondary damage 4d4 temporary Strength.

any creature within 90 feet that has an Intelligence score of at
least 1. The creature can respond to the couatl if it wishes-no
common language is needed.
