Earthy and wood-wise, Leshy are said to be descended from forest spirits, such as dryads or other plant-related things. Some are raised in civilization, but others escape and find their way into the wilderness. They flourish anywhere they can find trees. Leshy are easily recognizable, as leaves grow from their hair, and some have bark-like skin or other plant-related features. No one quite knows why, but the majority of Leshy born are female.
Leshy must have some kind of leaves attached to their hair or head, OR a makeup pattern of leaves on their face. Leshy may have makeup on their face representing bark-like skin, but this is optional.
