Feathered Serpents live near Colima in the lands of the Azcans, having been driven out of most of their original home by Atzanteotl’s winged vipers. They are smart enough to be trained by humans; the humans of Colima use them as watchdogs. There is an herb (DC 20 Nature to identify), Serpent Mint, which gives them Resist Poison 5, and +1 to hit, damage, and all defences for one encounter, along with 8 temp HP. It is rare and hard to find, but wise Feathered Serpent trainers keep a small stock if possible.
