This hunched creature has a single huge eye that dominates its entire face. Its body is bloated and misshapen, and its limbs are wiry but strong. Its arms end in claws that reach the ground as it moves in an awkward hop.
Cyclops are twisted aberrations that live in caves and ruins, feasting on the flesh of any living creature they can catch. They have been known to herd blind goats as well as farm mushrooms.
Cyclops speak Deep Speech in hoarse, wheezing voices.
A cyclops is not exceptionally fast. Since cyclops’s are perfectly happy eating carrion, they rely on their gaze to disable victims before moving in for a meal. Cyclop’s usually attempt to maintain distance long enough for their gaze attack to weaken and disable its foes before engaging in combat. They often ready an action to retreat when if their prey decides to fight.
