The Waterdhavian Dryad was told of the cure for the Wailing Death by Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun. Ever benevolent, she willingly agreed to travel to Neverwinter to provide a Lock of Dryad Hair for the cure. Khelben told her that any tree would be able to transport her back to her oak once she was ready to return.
When the Neverwinter Academy was attacked, she fled into the city. She became disoriented until she found her way into the Blacklake District where the mage Meldanen found her. To protect herself, she charmed him. Unfortunately, the charm caused the wizard to fall madly and possessively in love with her. He imprisoned her and became hostile to all others, in order to protect his newfound love. Away from nature, the Dryad grew ever weaker. Eventually, the Hero of Neverwinter freed her. She gave him a lock of her hair, and then escaped home via the nearest tree.
- "Dryads are exquisitely beautiful tree sprites found deep in secluded woodlands. This one looks absolutely terrified." ("Examine" Description, Prologue)
- "Despite being caged for a number of days, this Waterdhavian creature is still eerily beautiful. She looks sad, however, and more than a little weak." ("Examine" Description, Ch. 1)
The Waterdhavian Dryad appears in the original campaign of Neverwinter Nights.
