You lived with some sort of curse for years. How you got the curse and how it affected you are your decision. You can create the details with your DM or you may roll or choose them from the table below.As a cursed person you once suffered from a magic prolem so rare it’s almost unique. This curse could have been placed on you by a spellcastr or magic monster lika a genier or hag or maybe you caught the curse while trespassing in an ancient tomb or vault or because you accidentally killed a sacred animal or offended the servant of a god in some way. How you caught your curse and how you or someone else cured it are up to you and the DM.

Feature: The pulse of evil you have learned to tap into the residual magic left in your body from the curse placed on you you may spend a day of downtime in quiet meditation. by doing so you can sense the direction of the closest creature with the undead or fiend type. whichever is closest. Meditating this way not tell you the distance to the creature or give you any details about it. you simply know which direction the creature is from you at the time. you end your medtitation.
Variant feature: pass the curse check with your DM befor taking this feature. The curse you had is still dormant within you. you may pass this curse to any living creature you touch.

Suggested charactristics: a person who is cursed, you’ve probably lived a solitary life in order to prevent from hurting love ones. Now that the curse is lifted, you’re able to spend time with those those you love again, but you,ve been changee. If you can keep them engaged and talking by asking lots of questions, you may never have to discuss the fact that you were cursed. Bringing it up is painfull.
