The least spirit centipede is a tiny centipede that is entirely white, with the head of a bald human with a bushy moustache and nine eyes spaced evenly around its head. It is a poisonous, shape-changing creature that administers punishments on behalf of the Celestial Bureaucracy.

A least spirit centipede is capable of giving up reincarnation to repay a debt of honor. When it does under these conditions, its body turns to brass. The brass centipede can be hung inside a building and works as a charm of protection from spirits.
