As the tengu racial trait.
A yamabushi tengu uses its wings even in combat although not to make slam attacks; it supplements its melee combat with the slaps and whips of its wings to buffet and disorient its opponents. Each round, in addition to its normal attacks, a yamabushi tengu may make a Bluff check against an opponent’s Sense Motive while in combat. If the check is successful, the tengu’s attacks that round gain a +2 circumstance bonus to attack rolls.
Environment any; forests, mountains, and sky
Organization solitary, pair, clan (3-5), or troop (one greater yamabushi tengu, and 2-5 winged greater karasu tengu)
Treasure NPC gear (leather armor, masterwork katana and wakizashi samurai blade set, 25 masterwork shurikens, other treasure)
