“Ents are not particularly brilliant. They aren’t fast. They’re not quick-witted. But if an ent addresses you, you stop and listen.” - Cortel Windwalker, Elvish Book-keeper

Ancient protectors. It is believed that the ents came about from old druidic magic millenia ago. They were brought to life to protect the forests they lived in. Ents are sturdy, and typically watch their portion of the forest in numbers. When the forest and the life within are disturbed, the ents step forward to keep the peace.

Living trees. Ents themselves descend from the trees they protect. They are tall, with thick bark and a myriad branches. Their ancestry lends itself to a passive approach in protecting the forest. Ents are keen to a simple life, taking things slow and steady, and are quite adverse to adventurous motivations. Many outside sources have tried to enlist the help of the ents to little success.
