Piney Rootwalker

Pineys rootwalkers are elder pineys who are deeply affected by the magic of the forest. Their twisted forms are barely recognizable as humanoid, and they wander silently through the groves and fields near their villages.

Revered. Though misshapen and dangerous, the rootwalkers are nonetheless revered by other pineys, who believe that sacrifices made to the rootwalkers ensure the safety of their villages.
