Dryads are wood nymphs, beautiful women who live in the forest and dress in flowing autumnal robes. They are described as nimble, very tall (7 feet and up) and can run swiftly through the trees with greater speed and agility than any satyr.
Closely related to Hamadryads, the only difference is that, while Hamadryads are linked to individual trees, Dryads are linked to a forest as a whole.
They, including Lizette and Rhea, helped in the battle between Light and Dark creatures when many dryads had been darkened. More than one Dryad can be bonded to the same forest just as more than one Naiad can be bonded to the same pond or other body of water. Hamadryad's trees, however, can only contain one hamadryad.
