The Crouching Creature is a squatting, red figure, scarred and humanoid with mismatched yellow eyes and barred teeth.
It sits in corridors, waiting for the player to stumble upon it. If it is not found in its current location for 45 seconds, it will get up and find a new spot. But should it spot the player when sitting or relocating to a new spot, it will strike.
It attacks with its mouth, gnashing its teeth and chasing the player, evidently imbued with a great undiluted rage. It moves at a good pace, though at not a great enough speed to make escape impossible. This is where it's gimmick comes in.
It will occasionally rip its larger eye from its socket and toss it at they player. This will deal significant damage, and the Creature will move at incredible speed to retrieve its eye. The Creature will be solely focused on getting its eye back, and will pause its pursuit for the moment. Damaging the eye will push it around to inconvenience the beast, as well as dealing double damage to the Creature.
The Creature comes in several flavors. Pistachio is the best one.
