  • Tree Mimicry/Physiology
  • Wood Physiology


User is made up of or can transform their body completely into wood.

Alternately the user can transform into homogeneous matter, without any part of their form being more important than the other.

  • Can dehydrate far quicker than a human body.
  • May require constant connection with earth or water.
  • May be restricted to single variation.
  • May catch fire easily.
