An animus-touched object is an object that has been enchanted by an animus dragon, a dragon who possesses the ability to enchant any item by putting a bit of their soul into it, such as guiding a weapon, having an object find a dragon, or even to build structures which would otherwise be either extremely difficult or impossible to build.

It is believed that every time an animus uses their powers, they "lose a bit of their soul" and slowly become evil due to the power's curse. This was first seen by Albatross of the SeaWings, who built a pavilion in the SeaWing kingdom and turned corrupt.

Usually, when an animus uses their powers, they feel more entitled to use it and begin to use it more often and more for selfish or evil deeds. If they don't do anything to turn back, they will eventually become insane, unless they find out a way to change the curse like Stonemover, or if they protect their soul like Darkstalker, although Darkstalker's soul still became corrupt because of his actions.
