This section lists the flora of Atys as it appears to the laymen homin. Note that many of this 'flora' isn't even really plants, but actually fungi or even immobile animals. But you'd have to dabble in botany a bit before you realise this.
The flora you may run into varies immensely based on the ecosystem of the continent you're in. Only a few plants appear in multiple ecosystems (like the Olansi tree that appears in both desert and lakelands). Thus the flora is classified by ecosystem.
A dense thorny shrub, the irena produces small, elongated, very sour-tasting, red fruit in summer. Much liked by animals, especially bodocs, these berries are consumed by the Matis only in the form of a sweetened marmalade since they are inedible when raw.
Its thorns can be crushed to recover an astringent substance. Its trunk is robust, but its branches are not, breaking at the slightest pressure.
It sports pink flowers, echoing with the same colours as its larger neighbour the salina, and exhales a sweet fragrance throughout the Forest in spring.
An ancient legend claims that Matis created the irena from the dorotea, yet no botanist is able of such a prodigy nowadays. However, the story still impresses visitors to the Majestic Garden!
The Great Tree is immortal, and its ashes, once cooled, regain their vitality. From the ashes come flowers and fruits. The flora spreads towards the sky in the hope of reaching other planets.
All the vegetation was born from the hands of the Matis. These agile artists sculpted each of the elegant leaves of Atys. The Goo, or more rarely the original chaos, is responsible for any malformation.
The Seed has many offshoots that form the vegetation of Atys. Plants are not so cooperative with the capricious Kamis, but the Kamis nevertheless use them to generate and then feed their creatures. But the Flora of Atys needs protection. Otherwise the homin civilizations will perish, leaving nothing but the bestial prosperity of the corrupted Goo…
