Leshiji (less-idg-ee), like Skogsra and Wood Wights, are wood spirits. They inhabit all the forests of Rassilon, typically tending an area of 100 square miles. They are also known as “fathers of the wood wights,” though in truth the role they perform is more like a supervisor, watching over and aiding a gang of wood wights within their domain. Wood wights call them “forest lords” out of respect for their powers.
As protectors of both forest and animals, their form is a blend of the two. Their usual form is that of a humansized figure with bark-like skin, hair and beard of living grass, but with a tail, hooves, and horns. Farmers, shepherds, and hunters who take only what they need leave offerings to their local leshij to ensure it does not take offense at what they take from the forest. Those who offend a leshij are subjected to a range of attacks, from confusing them to all-out attacks.
