Dryads

A people once indigenous to the forest. They eventually folded into the populations in areas that were deforested. Often they make up parts of the slums in the cities that are frequently called “wildlands” due to the fact that Dryads often allow plants to grow uncontested in their neighborhoods. The concept of “weeds” is lost on them, and any plant is seen as having value.   While typically docile, they are very protective of what they consider their lands and are involved in many turf wars with local gangs.   The people themselves are very human like with some notable differences. First they have no hair, but instead have plant like growth that appears in a similar fashion to hair. Some have grasses that grow on their head, other have leaves, and still others grow vines. They also develop bark on their skin, often around joints or hands and feet. Their gradient of orange-brown skin makes it look as if something was planted in fertile ground, though some have a greenish tinge as well. Their ears are pointed and their eyes are fully blackened. Instead of belly buttons they have knots.   The female Dryads are known are nymphs and have become a common fetish amongst city dwellers. In fact any population that had Dryads will have a disproportionate number of nymph sex workers.
