Ancient treant living within the Shadowmist Forest
Most of the time, the Great Oakfather remains in one place, rooted deep within the ground and content to dream his ancient dreams. On casual appearance, he looks much like a tall and enormous oak tree of tremendous age. When awakened or aroused to anger, he moves with surprising swiftness and power. Although difficult to provoke, the Great Oakfather possesses a frightening temper when it is finally unleashed.
Only a handful of individuals know where this ancient and wise treant lives; indeed, his very existence is known only through folktales and legends to most people. This treant is well over nine centuries old, having sprouted before the fall of the Nerathan Empire. In his time, he has presided over a small and secretive forest grove. Creatures may come to his grove in search of sanctuary and the protection of Oakfather. In sheer magical power, he is the match of an adult dragon. In wisdom, he rivals any living creature, including many of the great elder dragons. For the most part, Oakfather stays neutral in the affairs of mortals, and he rarely communicates with outsiders. He maintains communications with the Wardens and the Council of Druids, and often provides them with information and guidance.
