The Mother Bloodoak was the term given to any bloodoak tree by the termagant trogs, who considered it to be holy. During Blooding ceremonies, it bled for the termagant girls that came of a certain age and would cause them to swell to thrice their size, losing their hair, good looks and pleasant nature, and gaining aggression, physical strength and vast quantities of testosterone.[1][2]
