Tentacles protrude from the robes of this floating hooded figure in place of arms and legs. Its face is a disturbing, toothless maw.

Command Cacodaemon (Sp)
As a swift action, a venedaemon can issue a suggestion (as per the spell) to a cacodaemon. The venedaemon adds a +2 racial bonus to the save DC of this spell-like ability. It can command a cacodaemon to feed it a soul gem via this effect.
Swallow Soul (Su)
A venedaemon can consume a held soul gem created by a cacodaemon as a swift action, allowing it to cast any of its spells known without using a spell slot. For the daemon to use this ability, the consumed gem must contain the soul of a creature with Hit Dice equal to or greater than the spell level of the desired spell.
A venedaemon casts spells as a 6th-level sorcerer.
The venedaemon personifies death by magic, and so has an inborn talent for all manner of sorcery. Though as hungry for souls as any other member of its daemonic kin, the venedaemon thirsts equally for intangible wealth through the acquisition of knowledge.
Venedaemons are gaunt, and despite standing close to 7 feet tall, they rarely weigh more than 150 pounds.
