The Druids are a clan of humans who live deep within the forests of Britannia.
They are a forest dwelling people who worship the Goddess Clan while despising the Demon Clan, although Meliodas seems to be the exception. They are insular, living away from most other people. They are referred to as the philosophers and sorcerers of the forest. When a person dies, it is customary for them to guard the buried corpses to prevent any possession from evil spirits.
Their appearance does not differ from normal humans, however a common, but not universal trait of theirs, is white or silver hair.
