Name Of Species: Dryads

Sub-Species: None

Rarity: Common. Yet rare to be seen.

Apperence: Binded to a tree, they often have features of the tree itself. Leaves tangled in hair, bark for skin. Look at the picture below for an example.

Basic History: The Dryads of ash trees were called the Meliai.[1] The ash-tree sisters tended the infant Zeus in Rhea's Cretan cave. Rhea gave birth to the Meliai after being made fertile by the blood of castrated Uranus. Nymphs associated with apple trees were Epimeliad, and walnut-trees Caryatids.
Dryads, like all nymphs, were supernaturally long-lived and tied to their homes, but some were a step beyond most nymphs. These were the Hamadryads who were an integral part of their trees, such that if the tree died, the Hamadryad associated with it died as well. For these reasons, Dryads and the Greek gods punished any mortals who harmed trees without first propitiating the tree-nymphs.

Habitat: Mostly in the human lands, but anywhere really.

Quick Facts: Dryads are known to be binded to their tree. If their tree is injured, they do slowly die with it.
