Our protagonist Dale goes to the cursed forest to learn more about the origins of a disease that affected a neighbouring village. In his search Dale meets a squirrel-girl Rika, who warns him of the dangers. She advises him to leave the forest before the dark - otherwise the protagonist may end up like dark dryads. However her warning came too late…

Olly is a dryad who met Dale when darkness fell.

Like other dryads, Olly is caring for her part of the forest.

She is easily influenced by corruption.

She acts foolish and absent minded at times. Sometimes she loses her memories about some things. Partly it happens because of corruption.

Rika is a squirrel-girl who lives in the forest.

She is good at disguising herself thanks to the color of leaves in the forest. The color of the foliage is similar to the color of fur on her tail.

You have to sweat to persuade her as she hardly takes other person's point of view. She is quite stubborn.

One of her ancestors was a human.
