Dryads are Fey that are bound, life and soul, to a single tree, usually an oak. She feels everything the tree feels, be it wind or pain or death. If one dies, so does the other. She can't stray very far from the tree without growing sick, but as long as she can touch another tree she can travel through it and back to her own.
Dryads usually resemble young women with skin that matches the current color of the leaves on their tree. Often several dryads live in the same forest, usually one that connects to Faërie.
The powers of the dryads are largely unknown, and can vary wildly from one to the next. Though almost universally female, a male version called a Hamadryad does exist. Due to their rarity (many even doubt their existence), we have even less information about them than we have about their female kin.
