Sentinel by agapetos Sentinel by agapetos
"I will watch over these woods until the Sun turns into nuclear dust, and your songs of steel are but an ancient memory."

The Leshy or Lesovik is a male woodland spirit in Slavic mythology who protects wild animals and forests. Leshies are perhaps somewhat similar to dryads. A leshy usually appears as a tall man, but he is able to change his size from that of a blade of grass to a very tall tree. He has hair and a beard made from living grass and vines. Leshy is the protector of all animals and birds in the forest. Mass migration of animals supposedly happens at leshy's instruction. He is said to have the ability to shapeshift into any form, animal or plant. If a person befriends a leshy, the latter will teach them the secrets of magic. [more on Wikipedia]

Hahaha, you know how Americans are: they use metric system only in Sci-Fi movies and when weighting weed. :D Just kidding.
