The lesser spirit centipede is an foot-long centipede that is entirely black, 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 lesser spirit centipede can crawl over the body of an ailing person and cause an effect similar to cure disease.
