Solely a female race, Dryads populate the forests in greater numbers than most would bother to count. Their skin is often fair, but their hair often consists of living, growing branches and leaves. This is a very noticeable sight to any outsider. Occasionally, if a Dryad is powerful enough, roses will bud from their plant-hair, denoting great nobility in their race. Due to the fact all Dryads are female, the race reproduces asexually, by means of which they do not reveal to outsiders. Also, all Dryad's physical, emotional, and mental health is affected by the tree they are bound to. If the tree is chopped down, the Dryad dies with it. Also, they do not have remotely similar anatomy to Humans, Elves, or any other humanoid race, making sexual relations with those races nonexistent. On top of this, Dryads are living spirits bound to a tree, making them immune to vampirism or lycanthropecy.
Dryad society is far different from the societies of the Elves or Pixies for they have no system of education, unlike the other forest-dwelling races. They are also a very peaceful race and do not actively seek combat, unlike those who have violated their lands and burned their forests. But Dryads are not entirely defenseless. They can cast up shields and barriers using their powerful magic, their only weapon, to ward off invaders.
Also, Dryads have no effective form or system of government, but it has been culturally accepted that the eldest of each Dryad circle to lead them as they have lived the longest. These elder Dryads are often greatly decorated
Dryads are nature worshippers but are not very organized in their worship. Many pray to Lauria the patron of the forest, this is usually done at their own tree or occasionally if they are nearby at one of the sacred trees of Hollow such as the hallowed Trembling Tree, The Xalious Tree and the Holy Tree of the Druid Shrine in Kelay. Dryads tend not to have any specific religious rights but short prayers are usually common to the circle of which the dryad belongs and harkens back to the much longer and elaborate incantations of dryad society past. Dryads worship nature and life and value both dearly.
