Ce Bai Ye - Regulate Blood Herbs
LV, LU, LI (6-15g)


Ce Bai Ye - The white Yeti
The white yeti monster from star-wars was a hot blooded critter who caused poor luke to bleed before hanging him upside down in the snow cave. When he heard Luke coughing he came to check it out but found that Luke had expelled phlegm from his channels and used the force to grab his light saber. Luke cut the monster's arm off, which caused some burns and hair loss for the monster.

Silly monster, he should have been careful to consider that luke was faking his (cc: cough due to yin deficiency) to get out of hanging upside down (cc: bleeding with stasis). Now all the monster will have to eat is snow (cc: SP def cold)
