Jujutsu Sorcerers (呪術師 Jujutsushi?, lit. "Cursed Technique Masters" or "Shamans") are individuals trained and employed by Jujutsu High to defend humanity from Cursed Spirits.

Overview

Jujutsu Sorcerers are users of Jujutsu Sorcery aligned with Jujutsu High. They generally possess Cursed Energy, but even those without the innate ability to do so can become a Jujutsu Sorcerer. All official Jujutsu Sorcerers are trained and registered through Jujutsu High. There are two Jujutsu education institutions in Japan: Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College and Kyoto Magic Technical College.

Members of the "Jujutsu Higher-Ups" are apparently in charge of Jujutsu High and by extension all the Jujutsu Sorcerers.

Stereotypes

There are several negative stigmas are attached to the Jujutsu Sorcerer moniker. Many people believe that Jujutsu Sorcerers are crazy and that is a requirement for the job, as people who can't handle grotesque things quickly give up on being Jujutsu Sorcerers.

It is also said that many Jujutsu Sorcerers have detached themselves from normal life, making it difficult for them to have sympathy for others, which in turn makes themselves miserable. This is especially when it comes to the Great Jujutsu Sorcerer Clans where traditional values are more emphasized than a normal family dynamic.

Duties

  • Exorcisms: A Jujutsu Sorcerer's primary task is the exorcism of all Cursed Spirits. Sorcerers are normally sent out in teams on missions to exorcise any Cursed Spirits that have been recently active.
  • Sukuna Suppression: Jujutsu Sorcerers collect Sukuna's Fingers as a means to prevent him from reviving.

Training

Jujutsu High School: The vast majority of Jujutsu Sorcerers are current or former students of Jujutsu High School. It is an educational institution dedicated to the education and training of Jujutsu Sorcerers.

Clans

There are three prominent clans within the Jujutsu community that hold considerable authority and power if the members of the clan exhibit the natural ability or technique passed down in previous generations. These three clans are referred to as the elite Jujutsu family lines.

  • Zenin Clan
  • Kamo Clan
  • Gojo Clan

However, there are some named but less prominent clans in the community but are known for their technique usage such as the Inumaki clan for their 'Cursed Speech', and the Shinkage clan which is known for "New Shadow Style: Simple Domain."

Ranks

Jujutsu High has put in place a power scaling system that ranks Jujutsu Sorcerers, Curse Users, Cursed Spirits, Cursed Tools, and Cursed Objects on the same scale from Grade 4 to Special Grade. These ranking correspond so that Jujutsu Sorcerers will be sent on missions to deal with Cursed Spirits on their same level of ability.

Jujutsu Sorcerers can be promoted by receiving a recommendation from someone with their desired higher-level. However, they cannot be recommended by their teachers.

Jujutsu Sorcerer Levels

Grade 4 is the lowest of all ranks. If traditional weapons were used against curses, Grade 4 Cursed Spirits would be easy work with a wooden bat.

Grade 3 is the second-lowest level of the power scaling system. If traditional weapons were used against curses, a pistol should be enough to kill Grade 3 Cursed Spirits.

Semi-Grade 2 is the first of two semi ranks. Semi-Grade 2 is close to Grade 2 in terms of strength but is not considered as high as the standard Grade 2 ranking.

Grade 2 is the middle rank of the power scaling system and is considered the average level of Jujutsu Sorcerers. If traditional weapons were used against curses, using a shotgun would be cutting it close.

Semi-Grade 1 is the second of the semi ranks. It should be noted that from this point on, the difference in power is far great between ranks than it was on previous levels. Semi-Grade 1 Jujutsu Sorcerer's are considered to be stronger than Grade 2, but still a far cry from Grade 1.

Grade 1 sorcerers are considered the upper class of Jujutsu Sorcerers and the standard for all sorcerers and the top brass fit. They are paid the most and relied on to take the toughest missions.

If traditional weapons were used against curses, even a tank might be useless against a Grade 1 Cursed Spirit

Special Grade

Special Grade is a rare ranking given to anomalies with an unnatural amount of power, even for a sorcerer. In 2017, there were only four registered special grade sorcerers and sixteen special grade cursed spirits.

If traditional weapons were used against curses, it would take carpeting explosives such as a cluster bomb to take down Special Grade Cursed Spirits.

In recent times, curses have begun to surpass the Special Grade ranking and many more unregistered special grades have begun appearing. A Finger Bearer is considered to be a special grade, but its power pales in comparison to Sukuna, who is also considered special grade. Satoru Gojo believes it won't be long before sorcerers and cursed spirits surpass the special grade level altogether.
