Black Wood was born in the Kingdom of Ithengee. He dutifully served his people for many centuries. In 1222, he helped the Arch-Mages of Merioss in recovering two powerful artifacts named Blizzard and Firestorm.

In 1250, he became a Nature Protectorate for western Cinazan and parts of the Tribe Steppes.

When it was learned that he was conspiring with agents of the Orchish Empire, he became an Ithengee exile. Afterwards, he descended further down the path of evil, taking a perverse view of nature.

When it was found that he was studying under the Decay Conclave, he was branded an eco-terrorist, losing his position as Nature Protectorate.

Becoming ever more twisted and depraved with each decade, he went about perverting nature, corrupt the land with dark nature energy. Enemy of those following The Balance, Black Wood has escaped many attempts on his life.

On 4 Bloom 1791, Black Wood planted the Seed of Tarfilerquar in the Maegorion Forest. When this was done, fell energy spreading its tendrils from this heart of a dead god, Black Wood was Transcended, becoming a perversion of a Treant.

Black Wood sometimes rides a black unicorn named Rosecrusher.
