This slim figure’s proportions are wrong, and its disturbingly long arms end in claws, save for an oversized, boneless index finger.

SQ bloody bones mastery, hidden terror
Bloody Bones Mastery (Su)
A rawhead can sense the direction and condition of all bloody bones within a 1-mile radius.
Charisma Damage (Su)
Create Bloody Bones (Su)
A rawhead can create a bloody bones from a Small or Medium helpless, living humanoid. As a full round action, the rawhead extends its finger tentacle to pierce the creature’s flesh, ensnares its bones, and attempts to rip the creature’s skeleton free. This deals 10d6 points of damage to the victim. If the victim is helpless as a result of Charisma damage, it takes 10d8 points of damage from this attack instead. If this damage is enough to reduce the creature’s hit points below 0, it is instantly slain as its skeleton is extracted from its body. The skeleton immediately animates as a bloody bones under the rawhead’s control. This is a death effect.
Hidden Terror (Ex)
Environment any land
Organization solitary or terror (1 rawhead plus 3–6 bloody bones)
Treasure double (+2 leather armor, other treasure)
Some believe rawheads to be nothing more than figments from scary stories, typically associated with the childhood terror known as bloody bones. But others know rawheads to be all too real and live in fear of attracting their attention.
A rawhead stands almost 7 feet tall and weighs 200 pounds.
