The violetblades grew from violetgrass to become more suited to defend themselves. They grew to new heights and developed razor sharp blades. They are serrated and can cause great damage by tearing the flesh from animals too large to escape the blades. There is a central seed that is buried deep inside the nest of blades. It is bright red and emits its own faint light. This seed is very distasteful to those who try to eat it. When the plant dies down every half year, the plant turns into a puffy spore. When an animal steps on it, some spores get on the creature for transport, and the rest is scattered by the air. If the plant is broken off and carried to another site, an exact replica of the plant is formed. It simply grows using its genetic material that it already contains.
