Ya-Te-Veo is a cryptid plant- more commonly known as the man-eating-tree or carnivorous tree. It is a mass of vines which ensnares all that approach, flaying and constricting its victims into a bloody mess until it is nothing but a bloody smear at its roots. A carnivorous plant, it uses its roots to drink the blood and the decaying carcass of its victims to fertilize the ground around it and help it grow. Though rather morbid and violent, it is an extremely effective process- allowing Ya-Te-Veo to grow to enormous sizes. Though it might be possible to obtain a Ya-Te-Veo for one's self, that would require taking down an adult plant for its seed. Ya-Te-Veo is not a creature: it's a plant. It doesnt think- it has sheer instinctive reflex. As such, its fighting style is far more vicious and brutal than any animal. It simply sends hordes of massive thorned vines flying at its target to beat them to a bloody pulp.
These vines just keep coming, never stopping, until the prey or plant is finally dead. If one could obtain a seed and figure out how to cultivate and care for a plant, they would have a form of natural protection that would be extremely difficult to match. Furthermore, with the ground so rich with nutrients around a Ya-Te-Veo, it could help grow various resources as well. That is...if you could tame one...
Ya-Te-Veo has no color regions, so they all look like the individual above.
