The Treant:[]

“ Treant: *Tree rustling noises* Druid: Oh I think it's angry with yah now.

Physical description:[]

Treant’s look like living trees, they might differ in color, size, texture, and fruit, depending on the region and tree it is based off of. The Treant have holes on the front side of their bark that look like a twisted dark face as their holes seem to be pitch black, their legs are roots, two large branches serve as their arms and they are situated on the sides of the trunk.

History:[]

Treants were born when a large group of druids gathered up and focused their energies to save a species of dying tree that humans were burning down, this gave birth a species of living trees called Treant’s, these Treants pollinated and made more Treants, they even crossbred with normal trees to increase their variety.

Society:[]

Treants usually populate an entire forest, and don't really communicate amongst themselves, and can't really communicate verbally with other races. They can sort of understand and communicate via telepathy to plants, beasts, and druids. They try not to take conflict with those that can communicate with it, but will attack any other creature on sight as they are very territorial.

Treant names:[]

Treants don't really have names, they mostly call each other by their most prominent traits, for example a treant with many branches would be called branches. They are also called by their species name.
