A leaf leshy cannot use its fly speed to hover. When flying, a leaf leshy must end its movement at least 5 feet lower in elevation than it started.
Leaf leshys sprout explosive acorns, pine cones, or other seedpods, and can hurl these as ranged attacks. A seedpod has a range increment of 10 feet and detonates on contact to deal 1 point of bludgeoning damage (this damage is not modified by Strength). Anyone struck by a seedpod must succeed at a DC 11 Fortitude save or be deafened for 1 round. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Brightberry was created by an elderly human druid names Ericles. Ericles made it his life's mission to protect the forest in which he lived. He sought to do so by giving the forest itself life, and thus choice. Ericles created many different plant creatures, including myself, and communicated with all types of plants and animals. This was vital to his work, because not only did he face threats of the many different "monsters" of the forest, but the most vicious monster of all. Humans. Many different logging camps were constantly trying to invade his territory, which was just outside of the known maps. So much of his time was taken keeping these wood cutters at bay, that his original mission slowed to a halt. That is when he created me, and others like me, to continue his work. It seemed like we were finally pushing him back. I had several other leshies under my command, as did the others he originally created, and we seemed at peace for a time. This peace is what sealed our fate. We became complacent. The loggers had retreated in order to gather in number and power. They raided Ericles home and burned it to the ground. I escaped with only one other leshy, a leaf leshy that I created named Red Leaf. I know not how many others may have survived. Red Leaf and I left (to the Stolen Lands) and did not look back. Brightberry is now looking to continue Ericles' work somewhere safer. Build a plant community. Perhaps to wreak vengeance on the loggers. Perhaps not.
