Gorgon eyes are an especially nasty internal parasite that destroys and replaces the eye of a host, burrowing its long, clawed tail into the eye socket, before hooking it into the optic nerve. This process, allows the host to see through the gorgon eye, but leaves them in a state of constant pain, as the creature feeds on their blood supply.
These vile parasites get their name from their defensive mechanism, which allows them to petrify those looking into the eye. This ability is less reliable than that of a true Medusa, however, the ability remains potent and enough of a trade off that some assassins have been known to willingly infect themselves with gorgon eyes, as weapons of assassination or last resort.
A creature infected with a gorgon eye has a 1/6 chances of making a medusa's gaze attack each turn, While a creature infected with gorgon's eye, has a 1/2 chance of making a medusa's gaze attack each turn. A creature infected with a gorgon eye adds * to its hitdie, or **, if infected with two. Adjust their XP accordingly.
