hayalún tlakáyila – the Excellent Ruby Eye

a doodle...

“Eyes” are techno-magical devices – small non-metallic spheres resembling actual eyes, hence the name – that produce various effects when a tiny button on the surface is pressed. They have a finite number of charges, but can be re-charged. Most produce a beam of some sort when activated. In the case of the Excellent Ruby Eye, a beam of ruby light is produced which envelopes the target. The effect is to place the target in a form of stasis, “fixing” them at that point in time. For this reason these eyes are sometimes used to halt the spread of a poison until a cure can be obtained. In other instances the device has been used to entrap a person for years, sometimes decades or centuries, until they are released.
