Snakes are familiars often adopted by alchemists and healers. Their venoms help make potent potions, and their association with the aurn goddess Sare makes them powerful aids for healing magic.
Snake familiars are often set to guard newborn babies and young children. Their natural instinct to protect their own eggs becomes an instinct to care for the children of their bonded, and as they are able to curl comfortably beside the children under the covers or hide in the rafters above, snakes make attentive caretakers. Oftentimes, expecting mothers will bond with venomous snakes specifically so their child will have a night guard.
Snakes are associated with life, good health, and kindness.
