The death tyrant is an undead form of beholder akin to a zombie, though it retains some of the beholder's innate magical abilities.
A death tyrant appears as a rotting, mold-encrusted beholder. Gaping wounds - whether from injury or simply decomposition - expose the insides of its body, and it is either missing a few eyestalks or has a milky film covering some of its eyes. Because of its zombie like state, it moves and turns more slowly than other beholders, and it does not speak or understand language.
