Oracle of the Evil Eye is a character theme introduced in Dragon Magazine #405, Born from the Feywild. It is a detection-focused arcane theme primarily associated with Eladrin or Gnomes. It is flavored as characters being transplanted with a Formorian evil eye, either as a blessing or a punishment.[Dr405]
