Giant Orchids
Giant Orchid, in-game
Only appearance: Savage Empire

Though they bear some similarities to the hydrae of Britannia, giant orchids are found only in the valley of Eodon. These aggressive and carnivorous plants grow high in the valley, and are capable of eating virtually anything up to the size of a human.

In Savage Empire, Balakai, the chief of the Barrab Tribe, sent the Avatar to retrieve a root from these dangerous flora in an attempt to cure his deathly ill son, Nakai.


Growing in the highest places of the lost valley are high orchid-like plants. However, they are not inert: With even greater speed and aggression than Venus flytraps, they seize upon and digest prey, up to human-sized prey.
