Eye of Flame, Beholderkin

The Eye of Flame

A beholder, sometimes called a sphere of many eyes or eye tyrant is a large aberration normally found in the Underdark. These large, orb-shaped beings have ten eyestalks and one central eye, each containing powerful magic. Powerful and intelligent, beholders are among the greatest threats to the world. Beholders are immediately identifiable, essentially a floating head with one single, cyclops-like eye surrounded by ten smaller eye stalks. Other than this, the main feature of a beholder’s anatomy is its massive, gaping maw. Because of these features, beholders are occasionally known as “spheres of many eyes” or “eye tyrants, although the latter also refers to a specific type of beholder.

The Eye of Flame beholderkin is from the Elemental Plane of Fire, its spells are all connected to flame, they are large in size, more of slit like eye and red in color. An unusually docile form of beholder whose members, while still malevolent, are willing to serve beneath more powerful beholders.

Xenophobic yet vicious creatures, beholders are quick to attack enemies, including anyone they deem not “like themselves.” Beholders, as a rule, are violent and greedy, hungering for both wealth and power over others. This is made all the more complicated since more than one variety of beholder exists, each believing itself to be the pinnacle of bodily perfection and they view other beholders who differ from this image in even the most minute details as loathsome enemies and inferiors.
