Mythography | Dryads and Hamadryads in Myth and Art (428 words)
Dryads and hamadryads are two types of wood nymphs in Greek mythology.
And indeed, the hamadryads were even more vulnerable, for it was believed that their lives depended on the health and well-being of the trees they inhabited.
It was the voice of the hamadryad who lived in the oak.
Dryads and Hamadryads (870 words)
Unlike a dryad, a hamadryad is able to change her size, from that of a small faery to that of a small human.
Though many hamadryads remain quiet and reserved, becoming paranoid when parted from their trees for any period of time, some choose adventure over safety, and will test the limits of separation from their tree as far as they can push it.
