Panakes are a Gnomish plant capable of aiding the healing of any ailment via their blossoms and petals. Panakes trees are created when a Gnome sacrifices themselves to create one by turning themselves into a panakes tree. Calla, who is a gnome, at the end of Neverseen, slowed herself down to transform herself into a panakes tree to save the Gnomes from the Ogre-created plague. Her panakes tree now stands on a hill at Havenfield.
