Rise of the Twilight Empire
Also known as Eye Tyrants, beholders are living weapons platforms imbued with malign intelligence and an overabundance of ego. Each beholder’s powers are unique, and each believes it is the pinnacle of form, a work of art compared to which all life is inferior. They craft grandiose, overcomplicated plots to compensate for the fact that lurking in the back of every beholder’s mind, they are little more than a gun with an overinflated sense of purpose.
Gauths are a smaller, faster variety of beholder. They may not pack quite the punch of some of their larger brethren, but what they lack in power they make up for in manageability. Those who make pacts with demons often find that a gauth is about as much power as they can safely handle.
