Intestine Stems (Ex) A fukuranbou’s distended belly contains a dozen prehensile intestine stems that can extend from the body to attack—six at a time. The stems can be targeted by attacks and are treated as having AC 14, hp 4. Any stem killed deals 4 hp of damage to the body of the fukuranbou.

Fukuranbou are hideous undead creatures consumed with a lust for destroying beauty. Its own vanity eventually led to the creature’s death and resurrection as an unholy abomination. In undeath, they hunt down those that possess the beauty or personal power they once had, to mutilate them. Having no need for corpses to start piling up because of their unnatural appetites for beauty, many fukuranbou negotiate with ghouls to get rid of a few corpses for the fukuranbou.

Fukuranbou shun clothing for it hides their unholy beauty, but quickly learn that a heavy cloak or coat help them reach their prey without causing panic in the streets. Some fukuranbou will even try to join adventuring parties, posing as a witch or oracle to explain their unslightly appearance. Then when they can they will try to split the party up, always travelling with the most beautiful or charismatic members of the group to feast on them on private.

The sickeness of vanity that consumed the soul of the fukuranbou now manifests itself as a powerful wasting curse that it can inflict with its claws. Several small villages have been lost to this curse. Victims who die this way sometimes come back from the dead as ghouls.

On Porphyra
Fukuranbou are most common in large cities where in life, their self-destructive narcissism was ignored by upper society and in undeath, they are able to abduct and destroy victims behind the safety of mansion walls.
