I had this idea of a new NPC who is made out of grass. He would work similar to the truffle. When you enter hardmode, he can be found inside/near a Living Tree ONLY if its in the Pure Biome. He would sell Grass Furniture and get mad if you get rid of some purity in the world. He would be friends with the Dryad and kinda dispise the Demolistionist because he likes blowing stuff up, including the ground that has Grass. To defend himself, he would grow his hand into a branch and use it as a melee weapon. His living needs would need to be;
- Must be in the Pure Biome
- Cant be made out of crimsion or corruption materials (I.E Crimsion or Corruption wood)
Maybe his possible names could be;
- Green
- Aoki
- Root
What do you think of this idea?
(I made a sprite to show what he could look like)

EDIT 2: Maybe while he is present, one of the NPC'S when you talk to them can say something like "Hey, can i talk to you about the Grass for a second? Is it talking?"

He only sells furniture. Top 3 useless npcs,
You ever consider the devs coding this? They can’t code it to detect living trees, because they are not a biome.
He needs to sell things that have functional use, spawn in a biome, and not get mad purity thing would be Kinda hard to code, again I don’t think they can code it to where it detects whether u removed purity or corruption/crimson did, also also I don’t want him to get mad every single time I remove a grass block for building.

EDIT: Count all other stuff as not existent I want a moss charger pet

I like this idea quite a bit, especially making the NPC more unique through the animations, but the Grass Man may need a little more in his shop than furniture in order for people to be okay with him moving in. Maybe not necessarily weapons, per se, but maybe more building/decorative stuff? Right now, I can't quite come up with anything, but you get my drift.

And now for something completely different:

The way the game detects biomes is by checking how many of a type of block is present nearby. The Grass Man's spawning requirement can easily be done by having the game detect Living Wood and Leaves; whether they need to be naturally-spawned blocks is up for debate (also, yes, the game keeps track of naturally/player-placed blocks). Plus, you know, the Stylist already spawns in a similar manner (in Spider Caves).
You ever consider doin' your research? 'Cuz that info was just sitting in the wiki (and easily found out in game, if you pay attention). '._.

For the destruction detection, an option they could go with is to just detect large alterations to the purity/evil/hallow ratio in a short span of time. Not sure if that'd work best, but an option's there.

Thank you and maybe he could also sell boots that game grass appear on the ground you run on, or a grass hook.
