With Eye Spy, a caster can pluck their eye from its socket, and it grows bat-like wings. It will naturally retain its original color, but effects such as eating the rose illusion can alter the color. The eye is capable of movement independent from its master, and LOOKing at things remotely. Eye Spy can be refreshed regardless of where the eye is located.

Eye Spy can be used in combination with Evil Eye (717) to execute a mass warding attack, both in the same room and remotely. Minor demons will carry the eye, allowing for more accurate navigation. Demon carriage is also the only way the eye will automatically follow its master (or anyone else).

This magic is only an illusion, thus cannot be a target of combat spells or effects. However, the caster can suffer very real damage if the magic expires while the eye is not in its owner's immediate area. The loss of an eye will cause the loss of 3 - 30 health and a rank 3 eye scar, leaving the the victim unable to cast.
