A Cursed Corpse (
Cursed corpses are defined as inanimate objects possessed by a curse that is capable of standing on its own. These types of curses that appear naturally are hostile to humans. Artificial cursed corpses created by sorcerers have a core that acts as their heart, allowing them to act independently from their creator until the cursed energy used to fuel them runs out.
Masamichi Yaga, the foremost practitioner of puppet jujutsu is capable of using his cursed technique to create a number of cursed corpses. Each of which are capable of following a set of pre-determined commands.
He was also able to develop the Abrupt-Mutated Cursed Corpse: Panda, who was born sentient and possesses three cores. Each of Panda's cores possesses unique traits, allowing him to switch modes at will, making him the most complex cursed corpse to exist.
Following the Shibuya Incident, Yaga was detained due to the dangerous potential of the cursed corpses he could create. An Abrupt-Mutated Cursed Corpse like Panda has a self-replenishing supply of cursed energy. The jujutsu higher-ups believed that if Yaga did so intentionally, he could even create an army of self-sufficient puppets. Yaga refused to reveal the secret of Panda's birth to anyone until his final moments. He considered it a curse passed on from himself to Principal Gakuganji.
To create an Abrupt Mutated Cursed Corpse, a sorcerer must replicate soul information from real physical information, then input that into cursed corpse cores. Additionally, the creator must put cores containing three compatible souls into one cursed corpse and have them constantly observe each other. Eventually, that will stabilize each of the souls and grant the cursed corpse self-awareness. Within three months' time, the Abrupt Mutated Cursed Corpse will also gain the ability to replenish its own cursed energy.
Kokichi Muta, a sorcerer granted the ability to control cursed corpses over a wide range can utilize them as remote-controlled proxies for himself. Unlike Yaga's cursed corpses, Kokichi's puppets are operated directly through a cursed energy link and do not appear to possess cores.
