    Beholders are an extremely powerful aberration from the Dungeons & Dragons universe. They are often employed to guard dungeons from intruders. Their bodies are covered with functional eyes, and they float above the ground. Their numerous eyestalks give them enhanced vision in all directions. Each of the eyes can be used to cast magic spells at an opponent, most of which are intended to immobilize, damage, or instantly kill an intruder. The large eye in front of a Beholder's body emits an antimagic cone, which prevents mages within the cone from casting spells, and also negates ongoing magic effects. If that weren't enough, a Beholder's knife-like fangs are perfect for tearing flesh and bone to shreds.
