The Dryads are descendants of renegade Elves who withdrew to the western islands in ancient times. Dryads live as one with nature and are masters of nature magic. They’re also well-skilled with ranged weapons such as bows or blowguns.
The Dryad is an adept of ranged combat. She has also mastered the magic of nature, and even practices dark voodoo, which she can use to collect shrunken heads from her enemies!
Dryad Class Quest (Light Path) Introduction: "I'm from the deep woods. My heart beats in tune with nature and my soul draws its power from the mystical force of the trees. But the world's destiny forced me to leave my home and fight to prevent nature's destruction. I spare no pains for this aim."
Dryad Class Quest (Shadow Path) Introduction: "Once, the forests were my home. I believed that under the protection of nature I would live forever, far away from the quarrels of this world. Still, I had to realize this was an illusion! Thus I decided to leave the forests and to take my stand on the stage of this world. Wherever my journeys will take me, I shall not lost track of my ambitions."

Most of them never see life outside their homeland and generally, they are not interested in affairs beyond their borders. Their tight bond with nature bestows abilities deriving from the very strengths of the wilderness upon these fighters of the forest. The most powerful of the Dryad hunters are even knowledgeable of the dark arts of Voodoo.
Despite being cut off from the rest of the world, even the Dryads are being affected by the changes that the Great Machine is causing. Entire areas of their habitat have been destroyed by uncontrolled T-Energy, and creatures that the energy didn’t destroy mutated to powerful monstrosities, which are now haunting their forests.
