Eye Stealer
These foul creatures have a bluish tint to their skin, their upper torso is muscular and their single eye radiates both intelligence and malice. Wicked, spear-like tongues project from the palms of their hands while their lower half is consumed by a black roiling mist.

Special Abilities
Levitation (Ex) The eye stealer has no lower torso or legs, but it is kept aloft by a swirl of energy that naturally radiates from its skin granting it perfect flight.
Tentacle Tongues (Ex) These tentacles strike from the palms of the eye stealer’s hand. If the eye stealer scores a critical hit or strikes a flat-footed target, the target must make a Will save DC 15 or be blinded. This blindness can be restored with a limited wish, miracle, regenerate or restoration spell. The save DC is Dexterity-based.

Eye stealers lived in the shadow of the Great Corpse, a demiplane forged from the body of a forgotten god. There they served as protectors and wardens who prevented outsiders from using the Great Corpse to steal visions they were not meant to have. It is unclear whether the eye stealers were original worshippers of the dead god or merely its last creation as it fell into eternal slumber. Over time, planar travelers were able to defeat the eye stealers and forcibly bar them from the Great Corpse, shunting them to the Material Plane.

They moved into the dark spaces of the world, listened to the many voices of strange creatures, watched their habits, and mastered their languages. Within the Underdeep they use their talents for stealth and linguistics to act as diplomats, heralds, and royal assassins to whomever can provide them with a suitable bounty of eyeballs on which to feed.

On Porphyra
In the Underdeep, eye stealers are often employed by duergar as translators and go-betweens. The eye stealers find this beneficial as the duergar honor their deal with fresh supplies of slaves to blind. With the infusion of deific energy in the lands of Porphyra, the eye stealers have begun to look for way to return to the Great Corpse and awake their fallen god.
