Demiholders are smaller, slightly weaker but more intelligent relatives of the Beholder. These creatures are not often evil, infact many are good beings that loath their monstrous ancestors. Their are 2 subspecies. Although they are all born with powers they are either psionic or magical. Magical Demiholders are slightly draconic with scaly bodys, reptilian eyes and charismatic features. Psionic Demiholders on the other hand have smooth skin, covered with psychic tatoos and their eyes glow with an ectoplasmic sheen. Amazingly these two species get along very well, however thet all know they have different aproachs to everything. Demiholders speak Common.
