Tessryn is a dryad, a fey forest spirit, that lives in the southeastern section of the Gleaming Forest. Dryads are the embodiment of tree spirits, able to move effortlessly from tree to tree and their lives are always tied to one special tree. For a time, much of the forest was being overrun by large numbers of brutish ogres and savage fey beasts from the feywild, led by a powerful cyclops and a cunning ettin. These ogres managed to capture Tessryn’s home tree, essentially holding the tree fey captive. Helpless to resist, Tessryn was forced by the ogres to lure travelers into an attack.
Tessryn sadly did the ogres’ bidding for several weeks, until the ogres were killed by the party. Overjoyed to be free of the ogres’ enslavement, Tessryn has returned the favor and has repeatedly helped the party in their adventures within the Gleaming Forest.
