Tengen, the one lord of the jujutsu sorcerers. He stated that Kenjaku is the second most powerful barrier user after Tengen himself.

He even made the group work as a team and became a great threat to the world of jujutsu and Japan.

Kenjaku Jujutsu techniques
Ø Energy Manipulation. :
He possesses a great amount of cursed energy. He uses cursed spirit manipulation and that technique needs a massive amount of cursed energy to work. Kenjaku Jujutsu also uses the curse reversal technique to its greatest extent. He used the reversed curse technique to heal Suguru Geto’s body after transplanting his brain into Geto’s body.
Ø Healing. :
The most known cursed technique is the cursed reversal technique. However, despite being the most known technique, it’s rarely used as it requires a lot of cursed energy and is difficult to use. Through this technique, one can heal the physical wounds on one’s body. By applying the creative nature of reverse cursed energy to damaged or lost flesh, it could be then replaced with new and undamaged cells. He was an expert at using reverse cursed energy to heal his wounds.
Ø Possession. :
Most of the jujutsu sorcerers are born with cursed techniques known as “ Innate Techniques ”. Kenjaku was also born with an innate technique that allowed him to get permanent possession of anyone’s body alive or dead. This is, done when he transplants his brain into another person’s skull. By doing so, he can access the host’s memories, cursed energy, and innate techniques.
Ø Cursed Spirit Manipulation. :
The innate technique of his current body, Suguru Geto, was “Cursed Spirit Manipulation. What’s more, Cursed Spirit Manipulation allowed him to gain complete and permanent control of cursed spirits. The body is then controlled by turning a curse into a small black sphere and consuming it.
Ø Gravity Manipulation. :
This technique was the innate cursed technique of Kaori Itadori. This antigravity technique allows him to decrease or completely delete the gravity in an area with a radius of about 2 meters around him. Furthermore, when he merges the reverse cursed technique with antigravity, he often does. He is capable of increasing the gravity making it too hard for the targeted body to even stand on his legs.
There is no such personality description about him. However, Noritoshi Kamo was then addressed as the most evilest sorcerer to ever live. His experiments were so disgusting that the files on the history records were almost erased. Later, when he took Kaori’s body he intended to give birth to a child for an unknown purpose. Carrying on, when he shifted to Geto’s body, he adapted to his manners and his laid-back attitude. He believes that humanity’s next step towards evolution is optimizing the cursed energy. That can be only achieved by combining cursed energy users or cursed spirits or even the best Tengen himself with non-cursed energy users.
