A Branchwraith.

Branchwraiths are the matriarchal Sylvaneth chieftains, spiritual leaders and sacred priestesses who are more able to direct both their own fey nature and that of their dryad kin. They hear the Spirit Song more clearly and can project it to their kin to gather them for war or other greater matters. Branchwraiths can also channel life magic, to destroy their enemies and protect the other forest folk. [1a][5]

They attack with piercing talons and receive blessings of the forest if close enough to a Wyldwood. They are wizards with the power of Ghyran imbued into their bodies. They can call upon the Wyldwoods to rose the dryads from slumber into war. They are druidic wizards and know a spell from the Lore of the Deepwood as well as the Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and their own Roused to Wrath spells.[6]

A few branchwraith carry ancient living treasures or verdant artefacts in to battle such as the Tear of Grace that in times of dire need a branchwraith may bear. [1f]
