The Dryad


Dryads are mythological beings; they are the protectors of the woods. Each Dryad is linked to their own tree, a tree that they have to keep safe, if the tree dies, they die. Anyone who tries to harm their tree will be punished. Dryads are able to use the forces of nature to their advantage; to heal themselves and to harm others.
