Pinison is a female dryad with green wooden-like skin and leaves that act as hair.
Pinison is a quiet and peaceful dryad and became panicked when Zy'tl Q'ae awakened. She seemed very confident of those who had assisted her in the far past. Her faith in the seven heroes never faltered despite not seeing a trace of their appearance for many decades (though this could be due to a lack of understanding of the conception of time of her race. Thus she probably didn't realize they might no longer exist).
Her view of the world seems quite shallow due to her isolation, as she could not initially accept some of the feats that the Floor Guardians were capable of, even when witnessing it with her own eyes. However, after seeing the Guardians defeating Zy'tl Q'ae with ease, she now holds the belief that creatures capable of destroying the world are common.
Pinison was born in the far northern part of the Great Forest of Tob since long ago. One day, Zy'tl Q'ae appeared out of the sky and took refuge in the forest, where it fell into a deep slumber. She then met a group of seven adventurers, who were there to challenge it and told Pinison they promise to defeat it and restore peace to the forest. Even though they succeeded, she was aware that they only defeated a piece of its body, not the main body itself. The adventurers made a promise to return should Zy'tl Q'ae reawaken.
Decades later, Zy'tl Q'ae began to fully awaken and caused the forest to slowly die as it was sucking the life force out of the forest surrounding it. Despite the passing years, Pinison firmly believed that the only ones capable of defeating Zy'tl Q'ae were either the Dragon Lord or the seven heroes, and still believed they would return.

Pinison met Momon, Aura, and Hamsuke when they made a campsite during their quest to find the miracle herb. After making a contract for protection with Ainz Ooal Gown, she assists them in finding the herb and directed them to its location near the evil treant. However, upon treading into the lair of the Zy'tl Q'ae, the ancient treant finally awakened and began to wreak havoc in the area. Despite Pinison's urgent warnings to flee, Ainz and Aura continued to calmly analyze the creature and make preparations for battle.
When she began to insult the two for their stupidity, Aura silenced her by calling her kindling. Hamsuke later guided Pinison to a safe distance away from the two as to not disrupt their plans. The two bore witness to the appearance of the Floor Guardians, their formidable abilities, and their overwhelming victory against Zy'tl Q'ae. After the battle, her tree (main body) was later moved to the 6th Floor of Nazarick.

Since her stay on the 6th Floor of Nazarick, the dryad was given the self-appointed role of chieftain of the Field of Flowers by all the other plant-type monsters. Though there were plant-type creatures far stronger than her, she was the first to come to Nazarick and was the one who helped form connections between the other plant-type monsters becoming someone they could admire.
Abilities and Powers
As a dryad, Pinison has a deep connection with nature. For defense, she is able to conceal herself by becoming incorporeal and hiding in her tree, allowing her to observe the area around her in safety. This concealment is effective even against Aura's sensory ability who commented it to be a high-class skill. However, Pinison mentions that she can't be away from her main tree body for too long.
In the Web Novel, Pinison could to some extent use a few spells that allow her to control nature. However, there is a great disparity when comparing the spells she used to those employed by the druids.

Ainz is Pinison's benefactor, as he was the one who recruited her to become a subordinate of Nazarick. However, Ainz blackmailed her to join under the threat of death from the awakening of Zy'tl Q'ae. She accepted out of survival and placed her services in his hands. She originally thought Ainz to be a fool, but upon seeing him in his true form and the terrifying power he wields, her whole reality was shattered.
