3—Terror Ray (Fear, Psychic): Ranged 10; +38 vs. Will; 1d10 + 10 psychic damage. The target moves its speed away from the beholder eternal tyrant essence by the safest route, then is immobilized (save ends).

5—Death Ray (Necrotic): Ranged 10; +38 vs. Fortitude; 2d6 + 10 necrotic damage, and if the target is bloodied, it is dazed (save ends). First Failed Saving Throw: The target is dazed and weakened (save ends both). Second Failed Saving Throw: The target dies.
Mental Transference ( when the beholder eternal tyrant essence drops to 0 hit points)
The beholder eternal tyrant essence is destroyed, and it transfers its mind into a beholder eternal tyrant shell within sight. The shell gains all the eye ray options of the essence (and keeps the eye rays it already had).
