|Gidal's Nen Abilities|
|Type: Unknown||Yomotsu Hegui (つじつま合わせに生まれた僕等 We Who Were Born Out of Convenience)|
|A haunting type curse that is unique to the Have-Nots of Kakin. The user must carry an object connected to the target, such as a photograph, along with a dagger, and must think of the target every day. On the day they want to cast the curse, they must burn the object, drink the infusion of the ashes, and commit suicide with the dagger. The curse will deprive the target of their aura and, in the most powerful cases, kill them in a few hours.
Months, if not years, of preparation are necessary for the curse to grow strong enough to successfully kill the target, and even then a few meters of distance from the target can change the moment of their death from two weeks to three months. It is however estimated that the user killing themselves while close enough to touch the target and looking them in the eye will result in a powerful curse even if not enough time has passed by normal standards. The ability draws power from post-mortem Nen and the user's resolve.
- The furigana name of the Have-Nots' curse is derived from Japanese mythology, specifically to Izanami's inability to leave the underworld due to having eaten of its food.
