Yggdrasil Tree

Its name may be reference to the Celtic "Horned god", Cernunnos. Its form may be a reference to Norse mythology guardians of the Yggdrasil Tree: a bird-like creature that protects the top of the tree, this may be Yveltal, a deer-like creature that protects the soil and trunk of the tree, this may be Xerneas, and a snake-like creature that protects the underworld below the tree.
