Most dryads are fierce protectors of the forest, preferring to spend their days keeping watch over the trees. Lunara, First Daughter of Cenarius, however, has ventured out of the woodlands she once called home, turning her ferocity—and her spears—toward any who would seek to exploit nature’s bounty.
