Shared customary codes and values
To tend the groves and all within (plants and animals), to protect those in need.
They despise fire for the death it can bring.
They see beauty in the color, shape and style of the leaves and bark.
Females mostly stay rooted and are like dryad/wood nymphs. Mating is done like trees (flowers and pollen), with seeds/nuts as the result.
On the first full moon after midsummer, the Ents gather in the females grove. They dance to the grove and their chosen Enta. She sends a signal to the one chosen.
Most twiglings have a short lifespan, 1/2 human years (around 40 years). When they pass their manhood ritual to become a Guardian, their life is extended to Elven years or as long as the forest needs protection. They are commonly pacifist, but will defend their home, family and innocents in need.
