Party of Many Things
Looks like cactus, talks like people
Keerla is a female dune dryad bonded to a saguaro cactus in the central courtyard of Redwater Keep. The creature in the keep’s basement had apparently grown a massive amount of porcupine cacti in the courtyard in order to trap Keerla and prevent her from interfering with its plans. She was freed when Altes fired an arrow into the growth, setting off a chain reaction that detonated all of the cacti at once while causing minimal damage to Keerla’s saguaro.
She appears to have been raising the fern lizards that attacked the party outside of the keep; when she learned that they had been defeated, she rushed outside and was later found feeding berries to the injured creatures.
