Monster memory[]

Appearing much as a burning tree, but with a more malleable form, this is a creature made of the essence of fire. Most find its very presence uncomfortable, as it releases great heat and ignites most things it contacts. It seems to enjoy sharing its essence with matter and bringing that matter into its state of being, if only for the short time while the material burns. Reports indicate that they change colors gleefully when igniting a living creature that dances around in imitation of their life force while briefly sharing their state of being.
