Leaf is a dryad and a wild creature of the woods. Dryads are also known as tree nymphs.
Leaf is one of the last living dryads, due to the decline of the large woodland areas their natural habitat vanished and their numbers were reduced.
They were shy createres once, but Leaf had to learn how to survive. She can look sweet and harmless, but she’s a fierce fighter, an excellent archer and can climb like a wild cat. Leaf lives on a huge willow and is spiritually connected to trees, this one especially. Her life energy is fueled by that of the trees and vice versa.
She has found a friend in Nimue and they sometimes meet at a forest glade near Nimue’s stream, where bluebells and wild herbs grow. They like to listen to the song of the water and enjoy the sun.
That’s where she met Enoch a long time ago, and she wounded him with an arrow. After she realised he was no danger to her she nursed his wound, and since those days he came back every now and then.
Leaf spends her days roaming the woods. She looks after the wild animals and trees and searches for berries and herbs. She doesn’t need much food. Dryads originally lived in a warmer climate, and Leaf spends the cold months hibernating in a tree hole padded with moss and fur.
