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.
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.
