Grimlea is part of a small pack of creatures known as Leapods who have evolved to inhabit the trees on the edge of the Valley of Despair. This tree line is the entryway to dark and deadly region known as the Forest of the Dead. There is little to no life within this forest. It is only truly inhabited by the Bezduszny, a zombie-like creature that preys on any living creature that enters the forest. The Leapods eyes have a hypnotic quality that disorients the Bezduszny to the point they do not want to eat. This has allowed these tree-dwelling mammals to find a sanctuary in an otherwise in hospitable forest.
