Naw,they are definitely nice. If anything, that's just it. They're too nice. Like the incel of the mythical creature world. I just genuinely don't get what people see in them that would make them seem anywhere near as interesting as a dragon, or even a gryphon, or even a basilisk. Like they never do anything but wait for some Gary Sue good guy to show up in their magical grove and then lead him to some relevant quest point, never to make an impact on anyone's life in the story ever again. Or maybe some elf rides on one because he needs to seem more magical and mysterious than the next elf. But like what is so magical about them? It's like they're all level one wizards who only know one spell, and all that spell does is make them grow a horn on they head that they will never stab anyone with ever. Why? Because they're too nice.
