Leaflock by Gail McIntosh

Leaflock was one of the oldest of the Ents, called Finglas in Elvish, whose name referred to his leafy 'hair'. According to Treebeard, Leaflock had become tired and tree-like, sometimes sleeping entire seasons through. Finglas, Fladrif, and Fangorn, were the oldest of the Ents of Fangorn Forest.

Etymology

Lock here has the meaning of "hair" since it's translation of his Sindarin name.[1]
