Corrupts the mind of a creature, forcing it to execute one or many more evil actions. The target perceives all of this as if his mind is not being influenced, and refuses to admit the truth. The target must take a Will Save or either be forced to do a random action that him/her or his/her companions would believe to be utterly evil (A paladin might kill a companion, while an evil lich could betray his underld murdering them). This does not change the alignment of the target if it is already evil, but any non-evil target becomes instantly chaotic evil. Once the first action has been done, the target has to take another Will Save. If it fails, the target will utterly become tainted by the darkness inside him, becoming a slave of its own demons. A target that fails the second Will throw can not be saved, and thus its alignment cannot be changed and he cannot be brought back to his senses, except by using Miracle or Wish, but even these powerful spells have a 50% fail chance. The target starts bcoming unreasonable and aggressive towards everybody, usually attacking his old companions without mercy, and is happy to surrender to even the slightest sense of desire. Once a creature has been corrupted by the spell, it feels intense urges to satisfy every single desire it has, not caring about any obstacle that might be in the way, usually leading to the ultimate goal of supreme power. Evil Spellcasters tend to use this spell to surround themselves with loyal servants, as the characters corrupted by the spell percieve the caster as a superior evil being, and usually accept to serve him just for the pleasure of helping him spread evil over the world. This spell is frowned upon between Good and Neutral spellasters as it is an incredibly evil act, and thus it is very rarely used, even against powerful enemies.

Material Component: A fresh organ extracted from a demon.
