Treeple appear to be normal humans whose bodies are partially taken over by plant tissue. They possess a tough, brown, bark-like skin and small, oval leaves protruding from various orifices. A small cluster of leaves is visible at the juncture of shoulder and neck. Internally, Treeple appear human, although with some loss of function. None of the individuals examined were able to speak, for example.
|Treeple were first encountered April 26, 2007 in Merrimac, Kentucky. Investigating a "zombie outbreak" M-Force encountered, not zombies, but human-sized creatures with features of both humans and trees. They exhibited sufficient intelligence to both wield firearms (a shotgun specifically) and sabotage the M-Force vehicle with what was later determined to be dynamite. The Treeple were revealed to have been picking off locals and turning them into more Treeple.|
