An accursed creature suffers under a powerful curse and can spread a spiteful curse of its own to others. Choose a thematic curse that you can convey to the players, but don’t change the creature’s statistics. You can use the curses from page 138 or from page 556 of the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook as inspiration.
