The Bloodless One is a rare lesser demon of the abyss.  It normally appears as a nine foot tall humanoid covered in coarse hair.  It's face is remarkably evil, with large protruding teeth and curved goat horns atop its skull.  It's purpose upon the plane of men may vary (see motivations table), it is however called into being by worshipers from time to time.  Upon it's arrival The Bloodless One will confiscate a lair from other chaotic humanoids, and or it's worshipers, demanding tributes and sacrifices in return for powers and spells.  What makes the Bloodless One different from most demons is that it prizes above all else loyalty, if its worshipers do as it asks it will go out of its way to return the favour.  

The Bloodless One has the ability to cast magic, and in some cases will bestow spells upon it's worshipers.  In combat the Bloodless One will protect itself by sending it's minions after anything that threatens it.  From the sidelines it will cast offensive spells, and when it has to it will head butt and claw at invaders.  The Bloodless One is so named because it does not in fact bleed, when wounded a deadly toxin will be released causing 2d6 damage to anyone in a 30 foot vicinity (allow a save vs poison for half damage). This will happen every single time the monster is hit.  Covering oneself in blessed holy mud will negate the effects of the toxin poison released by the bloodless one. 

To summon the Bloodless One one must do the following: 
*Spend 4 days and nights in prayer
*Sacrifice unwilling creatures each day
*Burn the hide of a dragon 
*Boil the remains of a once great lord/king
