Blood Drain (Su)

As a standard action, a bhuta can suck blood from an adjacent opponent that is taking bleed damage. The target takes 1d6 points of Constitution damage (Fort DC 23 for half). The bhuta heals 5 hit points when it drains blood.

Cold Iron Weakness (Su)

A cold iron weapon is considered to be magical when used against a bhuta. A magic cold iron weapon always functions as a ghost touch weapon when used against a bhuta.

Editor's Note
The creature's AC and CMD seem incorrectly calculated, as it's deflection bonus from Cha should only be +6. Corrected AC and CMD lines are presented below.

AC 24, touch 24, flat-footed 16 (+6 deflection, +7 Dex, +1 dodge)
