What are they?
Beings born with the mark of the cursed in many forms, doomed to live out lives with aspects of the original cursed one leading to villainous and destructive behaviors regardless of intent. Each one has a trigger that will send them on a rampage, the trigger can be small such as watching someone kill an ant, or large such as living your life in servitude to an abusive owner. The reactions however are usually proportional to how much damage the cursed one causes, those with small, frequent triggers may break a fence, those with large, prominent triggers can destroy civilizations which has happened only once.
Many have owners or masters, they rarely live in solitude in an effort to keep their powers at bay as once triggered, only the words of someone cared about, or exhaustion, can end a rampage. They tend to need a lot of love because of this, but the smaller their trigger, the less dependent they are on this. Even with the aid of such "Buffers" however, a rampage is not ensured to stop.
Why are they chosen to be cursed?
"Misery needs company" An average family of any race can end up befallen with this burden. They simply walk, usually on an outing, usually with a wife who is pregnant, when suddenly an old, frail, vagrant woman crosses their path. She asks for a small donation so that she may feed herself. If the family obliges, nothing more happens, but if they do not, they are stricken with an invisible force that they do not even feel. This is the manner in which the cursed one replicates herself, she causes those who have scorn her to give birth to another cursed one. She needs this to remain alive as she draws energy from ever cursed one in creation. It is believed that the degree to which, and the manner in which, the family denies her dictates how dependent on buffers the cursed one will be. Families that apologize for their denial are given cursed children who have small triggers, inflict pain on her however and you end up with a monster.
Few things characterize a cursed one but the aspects that do, stand out immensely. Their hair, ears, and tail are often the same color and very wild. It is difficult to maintain "stylized" hair but not impossible. Cursed ones are often mammals, with reptiles, avians or aquatics being rare. They have a "Were" form, it is in this form that they cause the most damage. And finally, they have large, robust paws instead natural arms, outside of this they are flesh creatures.
