This mad creation contains only a curious bundle of nerves in its hollow skull, but boasts great intelligence and a powerful sense of vision. Its many eyes soak in heat, sunlight and ambient radiation to nourish the bacterial symbionts who sustain it. It usually maintains between six and sixteen eyeballs at any given time, but their number multiplies steadily with energy intake.
When threatened, the Eyedra can release stored energy in concentrated beams with a variety of destructive and/or medical applications, its eyes variously adapted to emit burning, slicing or even crystallizing energy blasts.
An Eyedra cannot speak, but produces sounds oddly similar to those of chickens.
