Ents, also called Dryads, are a race of Fey creatures, looking like humanoid trees.



Ents are type of Fey commonly found in the Feywild, but also rarely in the forests of other planes. They've only recently been discovered, but they've been there since the beginning of nature's creation.


It's extremely rare for an Ent to live outside of the woods they came from. Ents protect the wildlife of their forests where they live and commune with other Ents, Fey creatures, plants, and animals that also live in that forest. Mostly, however, a forest only has two or three Ents (if that forest even has Ents).

Ent Names[edit]

Ents often have names of plants, flowers or trees.

Male: Quercus, Sambucus, Viburnum

Female: Phytolacca, Salix, Viola
