  The first Bakru are said to have been given life by Meloär and Timbal, who heard the wind moving through the trees and the trees whispering back their secrets. Wanting to know more, they took their seeds and shaped them into the Bakru. It is why every family name is the name of a tree or shrub.   Not very long ago, Dryads looked to keep Bakru as their personal servants to do their bidding and protect the trees they lived in and were connected to from being torn down by other species. Bakru were better at finding loopholes and making verbal contracts than even Fae (though the Fae's penchant for it is more widely spread.) So, while the Drayds managed to capture some Bakru, the Bakru managed to make sure the Dryads knew the work was not free.
 This lead to several forests being off-limits to anyone and everyone (even fellow Dryads) until demands were seen to. The unrest lasted two Bakru generations when treaties were made. To this day Dryads are very, very cautious when working with Bakru or anyone in connection with them.
