The concentration of primal powers on planet Nexus has given rise to creatures known as elementals - manifestations of primal energy so strong that they attain a form of intelligence and identity. Despite this limited sentience, most elementals are not brilliant thinkers but destructive forces of nature that guard concentrated sources of primal power.
The elemental creatures called Grove Guardians can be found in forested regions of Nexus, protecting the natural ecosystem from threats. The variety in Everstar Grove serve to guard the mighty Elderoot, the sentient tree who possesses ancient knowledge of the Eldan and the planet Nexus. Their bodies resemble hulking blue humanoids encased in bone, horn, and antlers. They sometimes wield simple weapons such as clubs.
