You assume the form of another creature decided when you gain the power. You must have created a variant form for yourself using your normal points and limits. If you do not have such a creature description ready, you cannot use this power. This creature cannot have higher value in any particular skill than you do. You can add powers of the same form the creature has and keep schticks and powers you already have, but you cannot otherwise add powers or schticks. This power cannot be used to imitate a specific individual; you remain yourself in mannerisms and detail while changing race, species, and creature type.
You remain in this form for a scene or until you fall asleep or unconscious or will yourself back to your normal form (a Basic Action). You can learn this power several times to learn to transform into several different creatures.
You can only assume the form on an Angel with this version of the power. Doing so, you are filled with angelic virtue and become unable to do dark deeds.
You split into two creatures with identical abilities, but each of a different primary color. All copies share the same Hits, shot counter, and fortune pool. In detailed time each duplicate moves separately, up to Maneuver meters apart, but does the same actions. If both target the same creature, only one gets to roll but gets a +1 bonus per extra duplicate (this is an application of Assist Action). Only one duplicate can perform a Limit Break each round, with the other duplicate(s) assisting.
When one of you is subject to an effect, you can decide to either suffer the effect normally on all duplicates, or have the duplicate that was the target disappear. All but one duplicate disappears at the end of the scene. The last duplicate left is considered "you", the original, there is no difference between the duplicates while they are active.
You can take this power multiple times, gaining a number of additional selves equal to the number of power picks, up to seven.
You surround yourself with a blinding aura of power, making you appear powerful and exalted. It is hard to focus on you through this intense glare; anyone wishing to target you must first take a Basic Action to overcome the glare. Once this is done, they can freely target you for the rest of the scene. This stance is negated against anyone against whom you have cover or concealment, just as if they had taken the basic action to overcome it.
Does not prevent area attacks.
