The manipulation curse (incantation unknown) is a forbidden curse that gives the caster power over a victim's body. When cast upon another being that being is prevented from acting of their own accord, their body freezing completely. The caster can cause the manipulated being to move at the caster's will, and can lift them off the ground and hurl their body around in the air. However, the curse does not limit the free thought of the victim. When put under the manipulation curse, the cursed being can also not make a single sound, although they are able to cry tears, and presumably breathe too.
