Kurse the Sorcerer is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a slave-trader and sorcerer native to Shanazar.


Kurse is a troll-like wizard with brown skin, scruffy white eyebrows, and a white beard. In terms of attire, he dons a loose, black robe that has large sleeves. He has a gray cloth wrapped around his belly, presumably to hold up his garment, and wears a gray turban that is brown on the top along with a long, flowing red cape. He also wears plenty of jewelry, having a necklaced imbued with a green gem, a silver bracelets on each wrist, two silver rings on his right hand, and three on his left.


A major-slave trader, Kurse once enslaved the Scimitar Brothers and merged them into a single being.[1]

After Sonic the Hedgehog escaped his prison cell and beat the Scimitar Brothers, Kurse appeared and trapped Sonic in a stone cage with his magic. However, when the Scimitar Brothers freed Sonic in exchange for Kurse's defeat, Kurse punished the brothers with a pain-inducing spell. He then tried turning Sonic into a frog, but Sonic was too fast and beat Kurse with a Spin Attack. As Kurse offered his service to Sonic for defeating him, the hedgehog had him free the brothers and release the slaves before telling Kurse to "get lost".[1]
