Might and Magic Wiki

The shadow lurker is a creature in the Shades of Darkness expansion to Might & Magic: Heroes VI. Its upgraded version is the shadow watcher.

The Shadow Lurker is a minor Spirit of Darkness in the shape of a floating orb of shadows with a single central purple and glowing eye and several eyestalks framing its body like tentacles, each ending in a smaller eye. It is said these beings are born in Malassa’s dark wings, before detaching themselves to roam in the subterranean realms. Those unfortunate to cross their gaze see their worst nightmares reflected in the Lurker's unblinking eyes.OffBck
