A retriever resembled a giant spider, with forelegs that ended in large cleavers. Its body was about the size of an ox, it stood twice as tall as a human, and its legs spanned over 14 feet (4.3 meters). Its four bulbous eyes gleamed malevolently. Scholars theorized they were made in the image of bebiliths.
Their eyes were capable of emitting magical rays that could burn, freeze, shock with electricity, and even petrify an enemy if they could not dodge. The rays had a range of 100 feet (30 meters) and a recharge time of approximately 24 seconds.
Retrievers attacked with their four claws and a terrible bite that they could use to grab and hold fast onto creatures and objects. This was how they carried what they retrieved. They could attack and use one eye ray simultaneously.
Their purpose was to hunt down and haul back whatever their master wanted, whether an enemy, an escaped slave, or a lost or coveted item. Their demon masters employed them for tasks too ugly for their own hands or that other demons could not be trusted with.
