Bamu – The Beholder

beholder, sometimes called a sphere of many eyes or an eye tyrant, was a large aberration normally found in the Underdark. These large, orb-shaped beings had ten eyestalks and one central eye, each containing powerful magic. Powerful and intelligent, beholders were among the greatest threats to the world.[1]

Beholders were immediately identifiable, being 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 was its massive, gaping maw. Because of these features, beholders were occasionally known as “spheres of many eyes” or “eye tyrants,”[6] although the latter also referred to a specific type of beholder.[2]
