Wood Nymph

Wood nymphs have hair colors matching that of the forest, with eyes that are blue in sunlight and purple in the shade. Their costumes are always oak-leaf green, and they wear sandals on their feet. Nymphs are tasked with keeping weeds from growing beneath trees and sapping the earth food required by their trees. They are the sworn enemies of gadgols, who take evil delight in flying against tree trunks and wounding them with their poison. In dry seasons, nymphs carry water from the brooks and pools to moisten the roots of their trees. Each full moon the nymphs dance in the Royal Circle of the Queen. There is also the Feast of Nuts, the Jubilee of Autumn Tintings, the solemn ceremony of Leaf Shedding and the revelry of Budding Day. The wood nymphs are led by Queen Zurline, who makes her home beneath the shade of a wide spreading oak.
