Cycad was a Nomai geology apprentice under Coleus.[1] He helped identify a non-destructive mining site on Timber Hearth for the construction of the Ash Twin Project[2], and is fondly ribbed by his colleagues for his habit of making puns.[3]


  • Cycads are a class of seed plants. Individuals belonging to a species of cycad will be either male or female.


  1. OENO: This sounds promising! Will you and your mentor investigate? If mining site 2b proves safe for this native species, we’ll move our work there.
  2. CYCAD: Site 2b is safe! Coleus says we’ll continue to monitor our activity and its effect on life here.
  3. OENO: I thought you had forbidden your apprentice from making puns, Coleus.
