Yuta Okkotsu is a character that was introduced in volume 0 or the prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen manga. Yuta was cursed by a childhood friend, Rika, who died in front of him during a road accident. Her spirit clung onto him and would come out on its own anytime someone tried to bully Yuta.
In the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, he states that he has tried to kill himself. He comes across Gojo Satoru and is appointed as a student in Tokyo Metropolitan Jujutsu Technical High School. On his first day in Jujutsu High, his peers are extremely shocked as they see a curse attached to him. Jujutsu Kaisen fan-favourite Gojo Satoru intervenes and explains Yuta’s case.
