Feed (Su) A púca can devour a nonevil humanoid’s corpse as a full-round action to permanently transform itself into a barghest, in both mind and body. Few púcas choose to use this ability.

Benevolent counterparts of barghests, púcas are pony-like creatures with practiced shapeshifting abilities. Most prefer to spend their time in the guise of a normal horse. The majority of púcas keep to themselves, roving areas frequented by fey and other kindred spirits. A few instead serve unwitting adventurers as steeds, looking to witness heroic deeds and to provide occasional assistance.

All púcas have the potential to go bad. A púca that loses itself in anger or despair can commit itself to a life of evil by feeding upon the corpse of a nonevil humanoid. In a twisted mockery of the púcas normal shapechanging abilities, this depraved act forever transforms the púca into a barghest.
