Eyes of the Raven
The Eyes of the Raven is a Bodily Relic that takes the form of a pair of rings that are imbedded in the eyes of the person who has this Bodily Relic, these rings are made of a material that is believed to be a strange metal. These rings prevent the irises of the person in question from fully dialating, but emanate an odd energy that seems to allow the person to percieve the world around them better. These rings can be felt by the person who has them, but if they were born with them, they don't notice.

Properties of the Eyes of the Raven
Crafting and Transfering of the Eyes of the Raven
The Eyes of the Raven is a very painful Bodily Relic to have transferred from one person to another. The process is actually rather simple though, the first item that is needed is the rings from the eyes of someone who already had the Bodily Relic. These rings must be small enough in diameter to fit inside the recipients irises, a medium creatures eyes are too big for a small creature to use the rings, for example. The rings must also be perfectly clean at the beginning of the transfer, nothing can be on them. The rings must be heated until they are white hot and the air around them seems to warp. Once they are in this state they need to be pressed into the irises of the recipient (they do not not need to be concious, but their eyes must be open) until the material completely passes into the eye. This process does not actually damage the eye for some reason.
When the recipient wakes up they will be in immense pain, and must make a fortitude saving throw or take 2d6 temporary Intelligence damage. As soon as the person receiving the Eyes of the Raven becomes accustomed to the feeling of the rings in their eyes they are considered as having the Eyes of the Raven. There is no known way to create the Eyes of the Raven Bodily Relic from other materials. Only a character who has 4 or more ranks in Craft(Bodily Relic) knows any of this information, the craft DC for this entire proccess is 15, if this DC is failed, then the entire proccess fails and the rings are overheated and turn to vapor.
It a person only has one eye with the Eyes of the Raven, they do not receive any benefits from having it. A person who cannot see also cannot have the Eyes of the Raven. If a person was born with the Eyes of the Raven, loses their eyes,and then has a child, then consider them as still having the Bodily Relic.
Immunities of the Eyes of the Raven
The rings that are the Eyes of the Raven are made of an incredible substance; it will not bend or break due to physical damage, it can be dipped into acid and be pulled back out without a scratch, and it is completely immune to psionic powers. Although, if a person is affected by a psionic power that moves or affects their body in some way, the Eyes of the Raven are affected as though they didn't have any immunities to psionic powers.
