OREADS

Greek Mountain Spirits

Also known as Oreades, Oreiades, Oreiads

Mountain Pine Spirits

These ladies are the Dryads of coniferous trees.

Living in the mountains, they are somewhat tougher and tetchier than their woodland cousins. As their habitat tends to be a little sparse, they also perform double duty as Nymphs of Mountain Slopes and Rocky Regions.
