Lords of Creation: Ancients of the Void
The Wood Walkers were the first race created by Aetherys. They were originally created to guard the Great Forest in which Aetherys dwelled, but due to his actions he created a new continent for himself in which his new creatures reside as well as now his faithful Wood Walkers, which patrol the borders watching for anyone who would seek harm to the beings upon the land.
Wood Walkers reproduce asexually and are planted into the ground by the parent in which they receive nourishment from the soil until they are ten years of age in which they break free of the earth and begin to walk on their own, ready to protect and serve Aetherys. They then receive nutrients from water and sunlight, which is all they require upon maturing.
