I want to make an NPC who can change into different human forms. The concept I'm forming is the character is committing a string of murders, and the PCs have additional problems tracking the killer down simply because he changes his appearance.
- I have the feeling that he should be able to remain changed for as long as he wants, rather than some powers which only have scene duration (which makes me think it's likely a change that's not easy to begin with).
- It doesn't need to be like Mystique -- instant, and anyone they see.
- It may not matter whether this is a a physical shift, or perceptive one.
- I do not necessarily care whether the shapeshifter takes the form of living, or recently deceased people.
- I'm trying to make a distinction from shapeshifters that change into animals or other non-human things. Dopplegangers are acceptable, just not a requirement.
I'm trying to figure out what my options are. I'm looking for "monsters" (used loosely) that have the aforementioned capability as part of their "fluff" or lore. Modifications from my initial character concept are possible.
