Prismatic Eye Gaze (Su)
The raven uses the titan’s eye in its mouth to activate a gaze similar to prismatic spray. Each turn roll 1d8 to determine which color of beam is shed by the titan’s eye. This beam affects all targets within the raven’s gaze. 60 foot range, DC 22 to resist. The save DC is Charisma-based.
Titan’s Eye (Su)
The raven’s gaze attack, spell-like abilities, and true seeing all derive their power from the stolen eyeball held in the Titan’s mouth. The titan’s eye can be removed with a successful disarm check. Unless the eye is later returned to the raven’s mouth, the raven is unable to use its gaze attack, spell-like abilities and true seeing.
Eye Thief (Ex)
The titan eye raven can perform a special dirty trick maneuver to blind. Unlike a normal dirty trick maneuver, this results in permanent blindness. This only works on creatures with specific visual sensory organs that are vulnerable to critical hits.
Environment L3 Lagrange Point
Treasure standard, Eye of Cronus
When Crossus was blinded by the usurper fey of the Lagrange Court, they needed to be sure that his eyes would never be returned to him and would never regrow on their own. The new lord trusted the eyes to a pair of void ravens, tasked with keeping the eyes constantly out of Cronus’s grasp… and out of his head.
The stolen eyes empowered the ravens with some fraction of the fallen Titan’s power, giving them the ability to shed the light of creation and destruction across their surroundings, though they lacked the finesse and control that the titan once had. Largely focused on their mission to keep the eyes safe and separated from the titan, the crows are also given tasks by the court where wanton destruction is the goal.
While removing the eyes would weaken the ravens considerably, they would relentlessly hunt the thieves trying to recover their charge. Even if the ravens were destroyed, the Lagrange Court would send other agents to recover and secure the eyes. Should the eyes be returned to Cronus, his return to power would be swift, and his wrath would be endless. In the end, even those who returned his eyes would not be spared.
