Dryads are wood nymphs and tree spirits who live in trees. Their names come from the Greek word Drys, meaning oak.
Dryads are known for fiercely guarding trees and you’lloften find them chatting to the trees they protect. These types of fae believe it’s their duty to punish anyone who commits crimes against Nature and their wrath is not something you want to encounter.
It’s often said if the tree a Dryad is protecting dies, so would the Dryad.
