Beholder, Gauth Edit

The gauth, sometimes known as the lesser beholder, is a 4-foot-wide orb dominated by a central eye. Six smaller eyes on stalks sprout from the top of its body. It is a rapacious and tyrannical creature that seeks to exact tribute from anything weaker than itself, and often attacks adventurers simply to acquire their wealth.
