- "A goddess bearing the water of life."
Coatlicue is the only summon that cures rather than damages. When used, a rather small amount of HP is restored to all current battling Adepts; the healing has a Mercury power of 60. Then, at the end of each of the next five turns onward, the Adepts affected will automatically restore their HP equivalent of their maximum HP values by 60% the first turn, 50% the second turn, 40% the third, 30% the fourth, and 20% the fifth. Coatlicue, however, is not automatically summonable once one collects the required Djinn. Coatlicue can only be summoned once the Summon Tablet containing the sequence has been found in Atteka Cavern at the bottommost tip of Atteka. The cavern can only be reached with the Wings of Anemos attached to the Lemurian Ship, and the Parch Psynergy is required inside as well.
Coatlicue is obviously very different from all other summons. It may actually be the most useful summon of all because of this. Thanks to the very potent effect of this spell, which is much like the classic Regen spells of Final Fantasy games, Coatlicue makes the party almost unkillable for five turns in a row because of how much their HP values regenerate. This can be useful in all boss fights that take place after the Reunion of Adepts; perhaps the best place to summon Coatlicue is in the later stages of the Doom Dragon final battle, whose titanically powerful Cruel Ruin attack brings most Adepts to a very low point in their remaining HP meters; a well-timed Coatlicue summon can automatically restore the Adepts without having to resort to Psynergy such as Pure Wish and Cool Aura in place of attacking.
The Golden Sun portrayal of Coatlicue is radically different in appearance from the original conception. Coatlicue was the Aztec goddess who gave birth to the stars, moon and Huitzilopochtli (the sun and war god). She was also known as the patron of women who died in childbirth, keeping the hands, hearts and skulls of the unborn children close to her own heart to purify them. Despite this matronly aspect and her epithet as "Mother Goddess of the Earth who gives birth to all celestial things", Coatlicue is depicted with claws and wearing a skirt of writhing snakes and a necklace made of human hearts, hands and skulls.
