A forest defender abhors the spoilage of woodlands by urbanization and seeks to demonstrate that nature is far from a toothless victim of civilization. They aspire to guard the natural world without harming city-dwellers in turn but won’t shy away from harsher means of fulfilling that sacred duty when necessary.
