Alianna, the Malefic Dryad, was once an apprentice to Aeron, the Eleusian whittler. After being captured and tortured by Mhaldorian ritualists led by Entaro and Eoka Nithilar, Alianna was rescued by an Eleusian war party and returned home to the village of Eleusis. After regaining her health, she announced that she would be known as the Malefic Dryad and declared her intention to wreak vengeance upon her former captors. Today, she can often be found wandering between the village and the forests in which she stalks her prey.
