Some of the more powerful and ancient of Athel Loren's spirits are able to entwine their essence with that of a living tree, moulding it to their will. It is not a decision taken lightly for, when a spirit forms a bond with a living tree, they become irrevocably merged and cannot choose to leave – only death can sever the connection. From that moment on, the will of the spirit shapes and drives the tree, using knotted bark and gnarled branches to serve where an insubstantial spirit form cannot. Terrifying to behold, these behemoths smash apart all who stand against them, and are almost impervious to harm. Foes are swallowed whole by gaping mouths that open in the trunks of these mighty beings, the corpses providing the host tree with nourishment for many years.
These mighty Treemen are revered by Elf and forest-creature alike, and are often infested with lesser forest spirits living amongst their branches, roots and hollows. These incredibly ancient beings have seen entire races rise and fall like the ascent and descent of the sun, and understand the passing of time in a completely different way to mortal creatures. Even the long-lived Elves seem to pass into dust at an alarming rate to these Treemen, the oldest of whom can remember times before the footsteps of the Elves left a mark upon the world and can expect to remain when the Elves walk no more.
