Sometimes informally called "dryad" by the ignorant. Meliai are a powerful, solitary Fey, who oversee some of the ancient pre-Sundering forests and groves or those with strong ties to nature magic. They live as long as the forests they tend survive. No one has ever seen a meliai outside of her forest. Meliai are very few in number because of the Sundering, but they are strong enough in magic that there are very few mortal creatures capable of killing one.
Little else is known about them as they are very secretive. Even their names are rarely given out and it is a great honor for them to give it to someone because it shows great trust in that person.
