The Horned Serpent is a legendary species of, well, horned serpent. Their horn is said to carry powerful magical properties and is the most valuable part of the beast. Despite being most known for its connection with the Indigenous Americans, its existence is also recorded in other cultures, such as Celtic, Greek, or Ancient Mesopotamian.

The Horned Serpent appears in the mythologies of many Native Americans. Horned Serpents were major components of the Southeastern Ceremonial Complex of North American prehistory. They are essentially the Feathered Serpent of the native americans, however the Horned Serpent seems like more of a motive than a deity with multiple names.
