Mandrakes (マンドレイク) are a species of plants that resemble small humans.


Normally mandrakes if left undisturbed reside in the topsoil. Their leafy rosette only gives any indication of their presence, but can easily be mistaken for carrots. Mandrakes are part of a diverse family of magical plants. There are three known cousin species: Galgenmaennlein, Alruna, and Alraune. They existed in YGGDRASIL and are also found in the Great Forest of Tob. Sous-chef is currently raising a batch of mandrakes in the Green Hole on the 6th Floor.[1]


Mandrakes are shaped like ginsengs, but are distinguished by their arms and legs, and move with clear self-awareness. Around the stem were holes resembling eyes and a mouth.


Mandrakes are semi-self aware, with intelligence enough to mimic words like that of a parrot.


  • It seems that the main stock of mandrake is the least intelligent compared to its cousin species.
  • While not intelligent, mandrakes do possess a limited sense of dignity and compassion towards one another.
