Close relatives of naiads and alseids, draiads are green-haired humanoids with wood-like skin. They are native to large forests.
Driope, member of Garuda.
As with naiads and alseids, I found the nature nymph varieties interesting and decided to add them to my imago races, adding males to the all-female mythology.
In Greek mythology they are call “dryads,” but I altered the spelling to show their close relation to naiads.
Draiads speak Panglossa and Akhai.
All draiads have Greek names.
Like alseids, draiads make their living by farming, but unlike their green cousins they are ferocious in battle and have strong command of Animus-based abilities. They live in small villages far from civilization and the encroachment of human development.
