Panakes are a Gnomish plant capable of curing anything via their blossoms. It is created when a Gnome sacrifices themselves to create one by turning themselves into a panakes tree. Calla, at the end of Neverseen, slowed herself down to transform herself into a panakes tree to save the Gnomes from the Ogre- made- plague. Her panake tree now stands on a hill at Havenfield.
- The panakes may be based on the alchemical idea of a Panacea, a medicine capable of curing anything.
- It shares this aspect with Alkahest, another aspect of alchemy.
- They have pretty colored blossoms.
