Dryad - 01

The Dryad by Evelyn De Morgan.

A dryad is a tree nymph, or tree spirit, in Greek mythology. In Greek drys signifies "oak"; thus, dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general.

They were normally considered to be very shy creatures, except around the goddess Artemis, who was known to be a friend to most nymphs.


Dryads are evil tree nymphs, or female tree spirits. The first dryads in the Castlevania series protruded suddenly from the trunk of a tree like a human-shaped branch. The Dryad tree in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon emitted seeds that slowly moved toward the player. The dryad formed the shape of a woman from the upper trunk of the tree in Aria of Sorrow.
