All dryads appear as scarcely clothed human females though they are in reality the spirit of the tree they appear to live inside. In effect, it is the tree that shapes the dryad, forming it to into a likeness of the human in order to have contact with the humans who pass by it. Such trees are rare and thus dryads are rarely seen. When such a tree dies or is felled, the dryad will usually wither with it. In rare cases those creatures can survive this occasion and will become endless travellers and drifters, looking for something they will never find. Seldomly they will give their friendship to another being, but once given it is forever and without restraint.
