Groot's Advancement

History

Gavin ex Miscellanea was raised in Fairie as the son of a faerie lord who's own son was being raised by Gavin's human parents. When the faerie lord heard of Gavin's gauntlet (some time after it happened, due to the nature of time in Faerie), he sent Groot as a gift to his 'son' to help him with the path of magic that he'd started down.

Description

Groot is a magical creature of wood in the shape of a small man. He also has the ability to change his shape, so he is often seen going around in the form of a brown and white cat or a thrush or a barn owl.
