The Beholder has a spherical body, one large central eye and a huge maw lined with razor-sharp teeth. Several omni-directional eye-stalks atop it make it impossible to surprise the Beholder from any side. This creature floats magically, and its gaze has been known to freeze its victims in terror, stopping all bodily functions and causing instant death. Those who do not die instantly are deeply afflicted with a gripping fear that makes it difficult to think coherently.
Beholders most often inhabit dank ruins in hot climates. The Azracs revere these creatures and refer to them as, Yakamaheli, The Eyes of Yaka, believing that they have been sent to watch over their people. Indeed, Beholders fight alongside the Azracs to preserve this notion, and the respect it generates.
