The beholder race came about in the Dawn Era as minions of the primordial lord Beldileck. With limited Powers of Creation, he created them as a security force that would be mobile, highly alert, and unhindered by the rugged conditions of what was then just called Orb 398. When he created the beholders, they were found to have more Negative Entropy in them than their creator. After a thousand years of servitude to Beldileck, they began to rebel. A century of fighting between those loyal to him and the rebels ended when Beldileck's great mass was petrified by scores of beholders working in unison.
Beholders are highly intelligent. So, it did not take them long to figure out how to use various primordial technologies left around after the Creation War. They spread their numbers to other worlds of Nawirrûs by way of teleportation devices and Null Mines.
