Plantmen were four-armed monsters with a large, vertical maw. They emerged on the island of Ruathym during the Time of Troubles in 1358 DR.[1]


Plantmen had a muscular, roughly humanoid shape, with four tentacle-like arms, three-taloned feet, and a vertical yellow-rimmed maw that resembled that of a venus flytrap instead of a head. Situated beneath their jaws were a pair of glowing yellow eyes.[note 1] Plantmen were green-skinned.[1]


Plantmen were aggressive, seemingly attacking non-plantmen on sight.[1]


Plantmen attacked primarily by striking and constricting opponents with their tentacles, as well as by biting down on their restrained prey's head.[1]


Some time after Labelas Enoreth and Clangeddin Silverbeard fought on Ruathym, plantmen started appearing on the island, attacking inhabitants and the crew of the Realms Master. Although the crew managed to escape thanks to the intervention of Labelas, many of the island's inhabitants died to the creatures' onslaught.[1]



  1. 1.0 1.1 The eyes are colored white on panel 1 of page 16 of Divine Rights, but yellow everywhere else in the comic, so this is assumed to be a coloring error.
