Watching Servants are created as sentries and watchmen for the citadels and homes of their sorcerous masters. Resembling hideous piles of folded, scaly, and wrinkled flesh, surmounted by a gigantic, lantern-like, orb-shaped organ which glows with a steady bluish light and which resembles a miniature moon or huge eye. They have no limbs, and are often simply placed in locations where they would be able to observe well.
Watching Servants have immensely powerful senses- they can see in total darkness to a range far exceeding any human, can hear and smell twice as powerfully as a hound bred for the purpose, and can sense disturbances and vibrations in the air caused by movement. When they are alerted to the presence of one that the sorceror has not layed his mark upon, they immediately raise a horrible ululating shriek and shiver violently, their scales rattling in a most unpleasant way. However, they have no way in which to stop an intruder, and serve only as an alarm system.
Watching Servants are made from a single large living lizard, a fist-sized lump of quartz (preferably clear quartz; this is honed down into a lens which is fitted within the Watching Servant's organ), human flesh as well as eyes, ears, and noses, the nerves of fish, and the blood of a watchman who has never allowed an enemy past his sight. The ritual to create one entails a large amount of detailed surgery, and several prayers which should not be spoken too loudly (binding a tireless and sensitive demon into the lump of hideous flesh).
