    Treants:

    Appearance and Physical Traits:

    Treants look very much like trees with legs, arms, and a face. When they stand still, it can be very easy to mistake them for a tree. Exactly what kind of tree they look like varies wildly. It can range from any mundane tree, normal trees with strange traits, or completely abnormal trees.

    Skills and Abilities:

    Generally treants have no real special abilities, save for being very strong. If they have any abilities at all, they are bound to be subtle.

    Birth, Life, and Death:

    A treant is born much like any other tree. It grows from a seed. Upon reaching maturity, they uproot and begin moving around. Rarely will they grow any more after this point.

    Treants live very long lives, centuries at least. Some may move around from place to place, some may act very much like the trees around them, in any case they're lives are generally slow paced.

    Before a treant ever dies, they will find a comfortable place and root into the ground. Their body stops and their mind ceases most activity. Essentially they spend the rest of their lives as a tree.

    Treants:
    Treants grow just like normal trees. Treants will shed seeds, almost all of them will grow as regular trees, but the odd one will grow to become a treant.

    Dryads:
    Very rarely, a dryad will be born from a flowering treant. As with normal trees, if a treant is pollinated by a dryad, a young dryad might result.

    Miscellaneous:

    Treants are often great trees found in old forests. When a treant roots itself before death, it actually starts growing again and can live for many many more years. Forests can even start around where a treant roots.

    As I flesh this out and come up with more information, it will be updated.
