He has a fascination with fire and light, often sharing his gift with the mortal races of the land. To invoke his favor is to feel the warmth of his blessing and ask the sun to once again dance across the sky in the morning, and for the controlled gift of fire.

Koa’tole’s emblem to the lizardfolk is an intricate reptilian eye. The lizardfolk see Koa as a serpent often depicted with spines and wings made of flame, constantly coiled in a similar manner to a ring or circle. The spines along his back and circular shape are said to symbolize the sun.
