The townsfolk had thought him an angel from heaven and built a stone fence around the tree with an iron plaque that read, "De solidum sed inane et sopitos Angelus plagam Eden." Or in English, The Slumbering Angel Of Hollow Eden. The young man's skin was a transparent pale with green and yellow veins visible, the slow rise and fall of his chest barely noticeable.
His body positioned as if resting in a casket, his hair a dark shade with a hint of brown. The lids of his eyes were dark purple, and if you looked closely, you could see a slight movement underneath them.
Scientists and Doctors from all over came to study the young man, but when any of them got too close, they'd start to bleed slowly from their eyes and ears before passing out in a puddle of their own sick.
