A Cyclops is an one-eyed giant. Fairly rare in the Great Underground Empire, they presented quite a problem when encountered.
The average cyclops would quite willingly devour an average human and proved to be a nuissane: Often one could find advertisements in Popular Enchanting posted by people looking for enchanters for cyclops eradication work.
Only two methods of avoiding a cyclops have proven effective: One could either feed it something other than oneself (some love peppers), or trick it into believing that he is Odysseus, its race's ancient nemesis.
One of the few cyclops specimens found in the wild was one that had taken residence in the Great Underground Empire in the Eastlands after the fall of the Empire.
