I see your fortition and raise you pre-aspiration of unvoiced plosives!
[ʰcu hai hai ʰpʲi]

linguoboy wrote:"Fricative" is really a misnomer for [h] since it isn't actually produced with audible friction. It's called a "voiceless glottal fricative" mostly for historical reasons, and because it does sometimes pattern with the fricatives of a language.
But it is kind of a boring consonant, so let's shift it to a pharyngeal approximant contiguous to low vowels:
[ʰcu ʕ̞a: ʕ̞a: ʰpʲi]

And how did linguoboy get [pʲi] from [pi]?
tonogenesis!!! Preaspiration becomes a high tone on the following vowel.
[cý ʕ̞a: ʕ̞a: pʲí]
