|Location||Acheron, Mechanus, and the Outlands.|
The observer is a larger-than-average beholder-kin (6’ diameter) with a hard, chitinous skin mottled in shades of pink and purple. It possesses six eye-stalks, three central eyes (evenly spaced around their equators), and three small mouths (one below each central eye). The observer’s mouths are not what they appear to be; each one is actually a sucker attached to the end of a 5’ tentacle. The creature normally withdraws these tentacles so that the sucker rests flush against the body. These sucker-mouths can extend to attack nearby targets, and, like the Death Kiss, they drain blood.
The observer, unlike many beholder-kin, is not malicious; however, the highly intelligent creature lacks any sort of empathy. Observers engage in an almost obsessive pursuit of knowledge; they will remorselessly eliminate anyone or anything that stands in the way of their research. Many observers will use their powerful psionic abilities to alter the minds of dangerous creatures; these creatures act as slavishly loyal guards that protect the observers’ privacy.
