A number of young commoners have been lured to the forest of eyes as a romantic get-away, someone or likely "Something" is taking them there and using them for some form of parasitic incubation. The process seems to begin from what I can assume is a kiss, the parasitic creatures than move from the oral cavity up the sinus into the eyes and into the stomach.
The eyekin appear to have near complete motor control of the victim as the incubation progresses, the victim we encountered had an impressive degree of magical aptitude well beyond what you'd expect from a woman of her upbringing and a body hardened against attacks. Young beholders ejected themselves from her eye sockets during the battle and she eventually split open from her spine into mewling younger but larger beholder. Samples of each have been taken, including the corpse of the one that tore itself from from her back.
The woman, "Bethany", the victim whom we were tasked with seeking within the Forest of eyes was taken there by what appeared to her as a young man with striking blue eyes. The woman's father had never seen the man in question, only heard of him through his daughter. The description and hints to how the incubation process begins was hinted from the lingering vestiges of free will that Bethany retained near the end of her life. It is unfortunate, but I can only assume that all other reports of missing people more than a few days old have ended in similar events.
What is important, is that we find the creature luring these victims into the forest and capture it for dissection within the Helmlands facility, or atleast slay it in a way to leave it relatively intact. We have little to go on, and I need more samples to formulate ways we might exploit their natural weaknesses.
May the Lady of Mysteries have mercy on these young souls.
