Kursed is Krystal's bounty hunter alter ego and a minor antagonist of the video game Star Fox: Command.

History

Before she was Kursed, she was Krystal, the sole survivor of her doomed home planet of Cerinia. She managed to take shelter in Sauria, after her planet's destruction. However, just when she was about to save Sauria, she was captured in a crystal. 

After Fox stops General Scales from doing any more harm, she was freed, and Fox saved her from falling to her death. Her relationship with Fox began at the end of Star Fox: Adventures, but ended at the beginning of Star Fox: Command, when she was fired from his team. After she left Corneria, she started a relationship with Panther Caroso, a member of Star Wolf. 

In the 4th Ending of Star Fox: Command, Krystal betrays Star Fox and steals their flagship, the Great Fox, leaving Fox McCloud and his team stranded on Katina. Taking Leon Powalski and Panther Caroso with her, they meet with Wolf O'Donnell on Venom, where they defeat the Anglar Emperor themselves. After Star Wolf's victory over the Anglars, Wolf still feels unsatisfied. 

Krystal explains that it was because they had to betray Star Fox to do so. Leon, on the other hand, is overjoyed that they can get the bounty lifted, and expects a celebration in their honor. Indeed, Star Wolf is praised for their efforts, but the people of Lylat are less kind to Krystal, believing that Krystal was wrong to swindle Star Fox the way she did.

Eventually, the comments of the populace become unbearable, as they start to hiss as she walks by, or would even call her a traitor to her face. She pulls away from Star Wolf to find a new life, fleeing to a distant galaxy and changing her name to Kursed (though the Japanese version contradicts it). She becomes a bounty hunter, chasing the worst in the galaxy in her visibly wearing out Cloud Runner, and making as ruthless decisions as possible to get her jobs done. She runs into Fox years later on planet Kew, but she has changed so much, Fox did not recognize her. It is most likely Krystal decided not to tell Fox who she was, either.

Trivia

  • The name Kursed is a pun on the word "cursed."
  • It is likely that this ending links to The Curse of Pigma, where Fox and Falco have already started to forget their lives as part of Star Fox anyway.
