Description
Lesser Dryads are fickle, pixie-like creatures that form soul-binding connections with the many trees that populate anoma, as well as making them their homes. Native to the spring court, Lesser Dryads can be found in any plane, as long as there is a tree for them to make their home in. A rare nuisance for those who seek to gather wood from forests, standing at at most a foot in height with tiny, insect-like wings. Lesser Dryads will defend their trees with a surprising amount of ferocity, hurling insults as well as unleashing their plethora of mischievous truths at anyone who would try to hurt their home. Lesser Dryads can turn tools or weapons not made of platinum or silver into harmless objects at the snap of their hands, a transformation that will last for 2 ooc hours. Lesser Dryads also possess a moderate hypnosis ability, that, if those who fall victim to it do not actively and powerfully resist, will cause them to fall into a deep stupor. They generally use this before revealing themselves to those they use it on. Furthermore, they are skilled illusionists, and are capable of creating medium-sized illusions near their tree. If these tricks fail them, the Lesser Dryad will use manipulation and deceit to try to urge those who enter into the range of their tree to abandon their endeavors.

Lesser Dryads, however, may be removed from their trees through threats, coaxing, or brutal force, any of these methods allowing the tree to be harvested without worry. If they are to be moved peacefully, they must first be convinced, and then a young sapling must be presented to the tree in which the Dryad lives, resulting in them abandoning their old tree and moving into the newer, younger one. Trees inhabited by Lesser Dryad’s possess twice the amount of wood comparatively to trees not inhabited by them.
