Dark trees drink the blood of humans and other intelligent creatures that wander into their native jungles.
Dark trees resemble cypress trees, but their bark is darker, and little moss grows on them. They have two deep black eyes that are almost impossible to find unless one knows precisely here to look. They superficially resemble treants, but anyone who sees a dark tree can hardly ignore the palpable hatred and evil emanating from it.
