"Why do I exist?!"
If a dodoguaan is placed under a remove curse spell or stronger effect it become freed from it deific curse, losing it perverted mindset in the process. Without an obsession to keep their thoughts from racing, it truly see it pathetic wretched self and usually wallow in bitterness and nihilism. These awakened dodoguaan are much smarter and wiser than their cursed brethen, and any dodoguaan create from division with an awakened will also be awakened.
They are extremely aware of their cursed state and possess a much stronger survival instinct, they wish revenge against everything and everyone but especially servant of the gods and the subject of their former obsession. That said they do not usually seek revenge, instead seeing potential for one as a small serendipity in their wretched and cursed life. They are overall much rarer than their cursed brethen, but being stronger and smarter could soon overtake a colony, as a result normal dodoguaan then to gang up on them and kill them before they can properly divide.
