The Dryad is a NPC (Non-playable character) that will move into an empty house once you've killed a boss. The easiest bosses to kill would be the Eye of Cthulhu or the Eater of Worlds. The Dryad reveals in conversation that she is 500 years old. She's one of six female NPCs, the other ones being the Nurse, the Steampunker, the Party Girl, the Stylist, and the Mechanic. The Dryad can tell you the percentage of Corruption/Crimson vs. Hallow in the world. She does not drop any items upon death.

  • She appears to be wearing no clothes, but instead vines.
  • She is the only NPC that the Truffle trusts.
  • No matter if your world has Crimson or Corruption in it, she will always, when asked for the world status, say it is x% corrupt (no longer true due to newer versions).
    • She'll say "You should try harder." even if you have 0% world corrupted and hallowed.
  • In one quote where she calls the Truffle NPC a "fun guy" it is a pun on the word "fungi" since the Truffle is a mushroom, a type of fungi.
  • She doesn't move in if Lepus is killed even though it's a boss.
