When moral persuasion fails to win criminal over to right conduct, you can use
mark of justice to encourage the miscreant to walk the straight and narrow path.
You draw an indelible mark on the subject and state some behavior on the part of
the subject that will activate the mark. When activated, the mark curses the subject.

Typically, you designate some sort of criminal behavior that activates the mark
but you can pick any act you please. The effect of the mark is identical with the
effect of bestow curse. Since this spell takes 10 minutes to cast and involves writing
on the target, you can cast it only on a creature that is willing or restrained.

Like the effect of bestow curse, a mark of justice cannot be dispelled, but it can be
removed with a break enchantment, limited wish, miracle, remove curse, or wish spell.
Remove curse works only if its caster level is equal to or higher than your mark of justice
caster level. These restrictions apply regardless of whether the mark has activated.
