Sea Curses are a given Magic in its true form. There are some curses without corresponding magics, however. Once touched, the Curse will fuse into the person's body, making them one, meaning that is no longer a difference between the person and Magic. Once a certain type of Sea Curse is absorbed, that particular Curse type will not reappear until the person dies of unnatural causes as the user stops physical ageing from the moment they absorb the Sea Curse.

For every source magic and mutation there is, there is a Sea Curse variant of it. Once again, however, some curses may not have corresponding magic, especially External Curses.

Typically the user can phase their body into the respective element of their Curse at will, use it as an attack, as an unbreakable defense and can even fly using it. The power of the Curse depends on the person's personality and emotions. The size and strength of the curse-magic casted would be extremely powerful in times of distress or anger.

History: The creation of Sea Curses was a result of Cursebeard threatening Prometheus to give humans more power, as Cursebeard knew Prometheus was hiding Primitive Magic's true potential from humans.

Types of Curse Users

Elemental Curse User: The most basic type of Curse, fusing the user with a magic such as Fire. In the present year (Y1854), all of these have been taken by humans, or are hidden so well that no one will ever find them. Elemental Curse Users can phase into their respective element, summon forth the element and manipulate it in any way.

External Curse User: Another basic type of curse, which grants the user unnatural abilities. The scope of these abilities varies immensely, ranging from being able to directly manipulate properties of objects (size, distance) to resurrecting after death. Users of these curses cannot phase into anything, as they are typically abstract concepts or forces.

Unbound Curse User: When a person is Undead, a piece of a Sea Curse can be granted to them by the user. These are known as Unbound Sea Curses, and the only known person that is able to perform this technique is Durza. Unbound Curse Users have various traits similar to that of a normal Sea Curse user such as the ability to summon their particular element without using Magic Circles, however they seem to be much weaker than the average Sea Curse user and seem to lack the ability to transform into their respective element. The only known wielder of an Unbound Curse is Undead Ramses II

Supercurse User: When one person absorbs multiple Sea Curses, or when multiple Sea Curses fuse together naturally, it is known as a Supercurse. Natural Supercurses are extremely rare, and a sighting has never been documented. Creating a Supercurse manually is extremely difficult to do. The user must move the curses next to each other using special tools, and touch them both at the exact same time. If the person is even a millisecond off, the Supercurse will fail, and the user will only absorb one Sea Curse. This has only ever happened one time in history, when Cursebeard absorbed his four curses.

Prometheus's Grand Fire Curse User: Soon after creating all of the normal Curses, Prometheus knew that Cursebeard would soon kill him. In his panic, he created the Grand Fire Curses, in hopes that a human would absorb them and defeat Cursebeard someday. Cursebeard was unaware of this, and he promptly absorbed the Blaze, Tide, Ice, and Energy Curses. Prometheus imbued these Curses with his own Grand Fire Magic. These curses give the person special control of a dangerous type of fire. In the 1,627 years that Prometheus has been dead, only three of these Curses have been found: the Inferno, Darkflame and Promethean Flame Curses

Trivia

  • Sea Curses seem to be based on the Devil Fruits from One Piece, a popular anime and manga series, as they both have many similar traits, such as granting the user a special ability when touched/eaten and disabling the user's ability to swim.
    • The sea rejects Devil Fruit users in One Piece, disabling their ability to swim. In Arcane Adventures, the reason given is that the magic pollution left over by Durza's attack conflicts with the energy of the Curse itself, and the Curse's energy doesn't know what to do, disabling the Curse user's swimming ability.
    • As of Arcane Reborn's revised lore, External Curse users are able to swim in the seawater with no repercussions. All other curse users are still vulnerable to the aforementioned effects. A Supercurse User will explode if more than half their body is submerged in seawater.
  • In the prequel, Online Fighting, players were able to absorb curses. Only 3 curses were implemented at the time of its development; Fire Curse, which was the most developed, Sand Curse, which was significantly less developed, and the Growth Curse, which could not be gotten within normal gameplay.
  • The Lazarus Curse could be a possible reference towards the Lazarus of Bethany, the subject of a miracle in which Jesus restores him to life 4 days after his death.
  • Most Curse Users cannot be damaged by swords, cannons or any other physical attack, making them only vulnerable against magic.
