heh, yeah well some pretty interesting ideas would be the heresiarch riding the korax (as a serpent rider, that would make more sense instead of korax being the serpent rider which would be weird)
and eidolon riding some big motherfucking serpent xD
I've always forgiven the "rider" moniker by considering that they use their mounts only for interplanar travel. It says something in the Hexen 2 storyline that they like to travel and conquer worlds, like Parthoris, Kronos or Thyrion(sp?). The absence of serpents under Korax and Eidolon can be explained that they're spectral. They only get summoned when interplanar travel is due. Finally, the serpents look just like the Chinese flying dragon, which makes sense for them to be for traveling into wormholes in space. It's just like you encounter knights and paladins in RPGs, without them riding their steeds. It's impractical for them to ride them indoors.
Do mind that this theory was spawned in my head before
I encountered D'sparil in Heretic. Considering the way that serpent looks like, and that most people actually start the Raven saga by playing Heretic 1, my opinion may be warped. But it still doesn't prevent the possibility of the Chaos Serpent being merely a secondary mount, and D'sparil riding a standard Chinese dragon when going to other worlds.
