Disease (Su)

Black apoxia: Steal breath— inhaled; save Fort DC 18; onset 1 day; frequency 1/day; effect 1d3 Con damage and exhausted; cure 2 consecutive saves.

Echo of Life (Su)

A kurobozu retains some the same disciplined training it had in life.

It gains the monk's evasion, AC bonus, stunning fist, and flurry of blows class features and unarmed strike damage as a monk of equal level to its Hit Dice. A kurobozu's stunning fist lasts 1 round longer than normal. In addition, a kurobozu replaces its Constitution modifier with its Wisdom modifier instead of its Charisma modifier.

Sage's Bane (Su)

Any target struck by a kurobozu's unarmed strike takes 1d4 points of Wisdom damage and loses an equal amount of ki (Fortitude DC 18 negates both). For every point of Wisdom damage a kurobozu deals, it heals 5 hit points. Hit points received in excess of the creature's normal total are treated as temporary hit points and dissipate after 1 minute. The save DC is Wisdom-based.

Steal Breath (Su)

As a standard action, a kurobozu can steal the breath from a stunned or helpless target, as per the spell suffocation, except it never causes the victim to die.
