Long did the Great Old Ones of the Courts of Life debate what response to make to humanity. Only a few felt action was needed-- those who had communed most closely with the childlike apes, and the champion they germinated was scarcely more powerful than a single mighty tree. Then the Hamidon was created, the Courts of Life fell into chaos-- even madness. Oak Tree stumbled into this life without guidance, with no sense of the weight of responsibility he carried.
Like the animated trunk of a massive oak, in humanoid form. A face of sorts. Huge wings formed of arching branches and layered leaves. A reinforced right arm used for smashing foes.
Among Oak Tree's many gifts is an ability to read human emotion; but without speech or any native intelligence to speak of, Oak Tree spent much of its time quiescent, responding only to heinous desecrations of nature and, eventually, the kinds of greedy, violent, fearful, and desperate emotions that seemed to be associated with humans in such situations. Eventually, an enterprising vigilante sorcerer with power over green and living things, by the name of Anthony Robinson, tried to merge with and take control of Oak Tree's enormous power. Their struggle lasted months, until they were cornered by Crey, and the wizard sacrificed himself to ensure that Oak Tree survived (did not fall into Crey's hands). Oak Tree absorbed what was left of the dead wizard, along with fragments of his personality. And destroyed the Crey facility.
With the durability and sheer mass of green oakwood, coupled with a lack of specialized organs and incredible regenerative powers, Oak Tree is virtually invincible. Given the power of movement directly from the earth itself, his strength is like that of an earthquake; were his body any weaker it would be too much. The birds and sky in turn gave him the power of flight. (Bio Armor, Super Strength, Flight.)
Coming into his own in many ways, Oak Tree has taken on the full mantle of life in its cyclical aspect, and unselfconsciously classes himself among the gods. (Alpha Assault T3, etc.)
