The Legend of Zelda: The Broken Chain
Deku Scrubs are a race of semimagical shrubbery. They are tiny wooden beings ‘clothed’ in leaves, especially on their heads; in fact, deku scrub faces are so rarely seen unveiled by the shadow of the leaves that they are the subject of many superstitions. They are wild and by nature rather cluttered, but not unclean.
The Hyrulian deku scrubs can be found almost everywhere, but are still most abundant in the Lost Woods.
They are an industrious, unruly people. They love to laze about and play so they often work vigorously to finish their tasks. As employees, they have spread out into civilization and now are frequently employed in hard, physical labor and subservient positions, such as construction, cleaning or as aides. Rising above such positions in society is very difficult for a deku scrub.
Deku scrubs are viewed with disdain and are subject to much cruel humor at the hands of the ‘master’ races, but are not generally hated like some of the other races.
