These abominations are beholder hive shock troops. Directors primarily function as cavalry fighters, as they possess a mindlink with specialized riding animals. The director itself is extremely large (around 9’ in diameter). Its central eye, however, is proportionately smaller than that of a true beholder. Directors possess only six eyestalks atop their bodies and three clawed tentacles located on their undersides; the creatures use these tentacles to ride their mounts.
