The Curse Personification Quest is one of three quests given by the Sad Ghost.
The Sad Ghost asks the Hero/ine to free it from a curse. If the Hero/ine chooses to accept the quest, then the Sad Ghost will turn into a Curse personification. Once the Hero/ine vanquishes the Curse personification (i.e. slays it), then the Sad Ghost will reappear and give the Hero/ine a prize. If the Hero/ine does not accept the quest, then the Sad Ghost will simply respawn somewhere else in the dungeon, and the Hero/ine will need to find him again to get the quest.
