Feris turned in time only to see a small creature drop from above, it's long fingers wrapping around his head, its claws grasping the front of Feris' tunic. Its giant eye looked deep into Feris' and as he opened his mouth to scream, the creature's tail filled his mouth. A sharp spike of pain and everything went silvery white.
Feris blinked, and found himself standing on a barren rocky surface in a gray void. Faint silvery threads crisscrossed out in the distance. "Where am I?" His voice sounded dull and flat in his own ears. A tugging pain, as if someone was wrenching his hair back caused him to stumble and fall back.
When he opened his eyes again Rathgar was standing over him, lifting the headless body from his chest.

This creature is the creation of an ancient race, a biological tool that they used to help them explore the astral plane. Unfortunately they don’t interact as well with other races. When they encounter humans and demihumans they will attempt to initiate an astral transfer. This process is initiated by the Optivor thrusting its tail into the target’s mouth. This injects a paralytic drug into the target, and the target must make a save vs Paralysis or become immobilized for 1d6 hours. The Optivor will then lock its single eye with the target. The target must make another saving throw or be sent to the astral plane. If forced into combat it will attack with its claws until it can flee.
