Eurydice's Clique: Tree Huggers

These kids are all definitely eco-friendly. You'll usually find them outside the school, up to their arms in dirt as they plant some young sapling. Eurydice is a dryad, the spirit of a tree, so it's no wonder she's one of the most dedicated members of this clique.

Artemis (Diana)

Artemis is the Greek goddess of the wilderness, and she's all about trees. One of her favorite things to do is round up all the dryads, like Eurydice, and run with them through the trees while hunting down a wild boar or deer. Get in with this group, and maybe you can join in next time.

Duc-Ba

These ladies, worshipped by the Amman of Indonesia, are a whole lot like Eurydice and her other dryad friends: they, too, are thought of as the spirits of trees.

Coniraya

Vegetation of all types sprouted up everywhere this Incan got touched. Imagine that! Too bad Eurydice is happily married, because despite his instant fertility, this guy is totally single.

Alka

This Lithuanian deity is the goddess of wild groves and trees. We're pretty sure that she and Eurydice would've gotten along quite well.
