The Clutch of Verthandi
The Heartwood Lady
The spirit of the massive oak tree in which the village of Oakwatch was founded, the dryad Casuarina considers herself the guardian of the gnomes who live in her grove. A druid of considerable power, she oversees most of the gnomes’ activities and guides the Elders in their decisions, always with the good of the community in mind. She has formed alliances with many of the animals and good-aligned fey in the surrounding Feywood, and is a loyal supporter of Alymaneann, the Master of the Forest.
