Druids are priests of Gaia, the main deity in animist

religion. Gaia is mother Nature, symbol of Earth and

Sky, the benevolent Deity that rules over all animists.

Druids are taught minor magic of all kinds, ranging from

draining on Gaia's power to heal wounds, invoking a minor

spirit for protection, or using small magic to create a

poisoned dart to kill an opponent.

Druids can also learn to tame animals, using both skill

and magics to summon a very special animal infused with

the blessings and power of spirits. They can also learn

expertise on the use of herbs to create magical potions

and balms. Certain druids have been known to be able to

learn to master weather handling and call upon the great

forces of the skies to provide terrible energies.
