Ebon Eyes is a Bonded Artifact in Torment: Tides of Numenera.


This pipette contains a liquid of deepest fuligin - a color darker than black. Applied to the eyes, the liquid spreads evenly over the eyeball. But instead of causing blindness, it enhances the user's vision and thickens, when necessary, to protect the eyes from harm. The liquid doesn't bond with the user's eyes - it rests lightly atop them, controlled by nanomachines that can be directed to keep the Eyes in place and control their thickness. The liquid can be removed by crying black tears back into the vial.
