The Giant Cove Tree is a unique species of Flora. The only specimen known to exist can be found within the Tree Cove of the Lost River. All of the brine around the tree is blue in color, rather than the green brine found elsewhere in the Lost River; whether or not the Giant Cove Tree is the cause for this alteration in coloration is unknown.
The Giant Cove Tree consists of a large main trunk, brown in color that splits off into many smaller, bioluminescent fuchsia tipped branches. Most of these branches surround a Ghost Leviathan egg, along with two similar, yet smaller eggs found lower down on the Giant Cove Tree.
The lower portion of the Giant Cove Tree consists of many large roots, dropping down into the surrounding brine pool.
The Ghost Leviathan eggs consists of a transparent, blue tinged membrane and a glowing blue embryo within. The embryos are most likely in the same state of stasis as the Emperor leviathan eggs, waiting for perfect hatching conditions. The transparent membrane supports a fluid within, that has all the nutrients needed for the eggs to be kept alive, and to support a healthy newborn. It is possible that the tree itself has evolved to deliver nutrients to the eggs. Also, the multiple orbs inside of the large membrane support the theory of one egg supporting multiple newborns.
Data Bank Entry
A vast tree encountered in a deep cove, and the only one of its kind encountered on the planet. The tree is surrounded by rays grazing on its pink outer leaves.
This tree appears to be an ancient nesting ground. The eggs were laid when the tree was young, and now the branches protect and grow with them as they await the right conditions to hatch.
- The exclusive blue brine found in the Tree Cove does not harm the player, unlike the green brine found elsewhere in the Lost River.
