Wretched lesions and bulging pustules mar the bark of this writhing tree. Its limbs are twisted and deformed, ending in vicious thorny claws. A gaping maw emerges from its trunk, oozing a stinking ichor.

The corrupted are the results of magic gone awry. The creation of the corrupted is an inherently chaotic and unstable process, so no two individuals, even of the same species, look anything alike. On the whole, however, most are truly hideous to behold - few could overlook the lesions, deformities, and overgrown tumors that mar their forms - and almost all are quite mad. Faced with magic powerful enough to warp a creature's entire physiology, an organ as delicate as the brain rarely goes unscathed.
