Gandr is a curse related to runic magic from Northern Europe (though rightly considered to be a different magic system unrelated to runic magic). The word "gandr" is a word referring to both 'walking stick' and 'wolf'.
As a magic that flies freely in an out-of-body experience, the soul separates from the body and has the potential to transform when it joins with a dead spirit. It is associated with the term 'Gandr shots' as sympathetic magic, in which it tears down a target's physical health by pointing an index finger in their direction. The more potent version is called 'Finn Shot', which imposes direct damage. Another definition of Gandr could also apply to the act of wearing down a target's physical health by feigning to beat them with a walking stick. The rude act of pointing a finger at someone is how this type of Gandr came to be.
