Ironwood Guardian

This Iron fortress of a tree resembles a great live oak tree with slimmer low branches. Its root system is equally as massive as its crown. Its bark is a rough and hard as iron. The gnarled and twisted bark is the color of rusty iron, but is in now way losing its strength. Still, it is somehow still quite reflective in patches throughout the tree causing the tree to appear to glow. Its dark metallic leaves are long and pointed with sharp edges. There are iron-like vines wrapped around its trunk.

Guardian The Ironwood Guardian Tree usually grows in the center of an ironwood grove. The guardian is there to protect the grove from other creatures that wish to harvest the ironwood for its strength and resilience. The ironwood species grows extremely slow and in very specific environments. They will only grow in a warm humid climate near a volcano with Iron deposits. A single tree can reproduce, but the seeds are difficult to germinate. The guardian ensures the survival of its species. Should a guardian fall, the next strongest tree will awaken to become the guardian. Over the course of a millennia, the grove will slowly migrate as the guardianship changes from tree to tree and the iron deposits are depleted. The guardian will always be at the center.

The Hunger. The Ironwood species as a whole has a deep hunger for iron. The Ironwood Guardian Tree is known to slowly devour passing creatures and would be harvesters for the iron found in the blood. If the creature caries iron on their persons, the chances are much higher of being devoured.
