Appearance and personality
Kokerlii has bright red and green plumage. He appears to be of a typical size for Aviar, which is "three fists tall" (approximately ten to twelve inches). Kokerlii and Sak are Dusk's primary companions. Dusk is highly attuned to the behavior of his birds and is usually able to ascertain their emotions through their chirps, bites, and body language. Kokerlii chirps often and generally has a happy disposition; Dusk characterizes him as "oblivious". Like other Aviar raised by humans, Kokerlii always stays relatively close to his master and would not "fit in" with wild Aviar.

On Patji by Matthew Johnson
As an Aviar, Kokerlii gained a magical "talent" by visiting Patji's Fingers when he was young. He has the ability to conceal all mental activity in his immediate vicinity. This is extremely useful to Dusk because many predators on Patji (such as deepwalkers, deathants, nightmaws, and tuskrun) can hunt by sensing thoughts. Dusk notes that the power weakens as Kokerlii moves farther away.
Dusk breeds Aviar and it is likely that he raised Kokerlii from birth, although trappers also care for the Aviar of their dead peers. Kokerlii has a nesting box in Dusk's safecamp, where he keeps the rest of his Aviar. Kokerlii's talent is highly desirable to trappers in the Pantheon and Dusk brings Kokerlii everywhere he goes. Kokerlii may have some understanding of his role, as Dusk notes that he gives an "apologetic chirp" after a nightmaw finds and attacks them.
Kokerlii accompanies Dusk and Vathi on a dangerous nighttime trip through the jungle. At one point Dusk believes he will have to sacrifice himself to a nightmaw and tries to give Kokerlii to Vathi, but an alternate plan is devised and Kokerlii remains with Dusk.
It has yet to be reviewed.
