Branchtender Cypress at your service. Welcome to our little home.

Branchtender Cypress is a member of the Treeminders and guards the gate at Oasis.


Cypress was born in 2252. Although the Treeminders would love to renounce violence and weaponry, they aren't naive: Cypress is one of the main armed guardians of Oasis. He is generally found patrolling the entrance to the Oasis Caverns. Cypress is 25 years old and used to be a wasteland adventurer. He is extremely loyal to Tree Father Birch, believing Oasis to be a holy place and Harold a god.[1]

Daily schedule

He can be normally found hanging out around the gate to the caves.
