In worlds that Chaos conquers the Phase energy becomes corrupted. This corrupted energy will often become these things, commonly called Chaos creatures or Corrupts. When these creatures are 'killed' their energy cycles through the Phase again and becomes uncorrupted. In order to reclaim a world from Chaos all of the creatures must be destroyed.
The creature was humanoid, but it's body seemed to be made of woven wood. It's eyes were two glowing holes, and it's hair was a thick, elegant carpet of moss. It's hands were branches, leaves included, and it's feet were roots that twisted and dragged the thing along as smoothly as if it were walking.
