There is someone else that is you. You are a clone of some person somewhere in the world. Perhaps you have only recently awoken and become alive or have you been in this world longer than that? Did you emerge from a vat or chamber that you were created in, or was there some other means that you were created by? Did you know the person that you were created from, or have the two of you never met? What purpose were you created for? Will you seek out your creator or are you happy to never know the person that shares your face?

Skill Proficiencies: One of your choice (Shared by your clone)

Tool Proficiencies: One of your choice (Shared by your clone)

Languages: One of your choice

Equipment: Two trinkets from the trinket table that you took from the original you, a set of common clothes, and a small pouch with 15gp.


Why were you created as a clone?

d6 Purpose
1 To serve as a body double in dangerous situations.
2 To replace the original person after a secret coup or assassination.
3 To carry on the legacy of the original.
4 For spare parts, in case the original was ever grievously injured.
5 To be part of a clone army.
6 To satisfy the desires or needs of someone that could never be with the original.

Feature: Mistaken Identity[edit]

Being a perfect copy of someone has its perks. Any NPCs that know the original version of you think you are them. They will treat you as the original and allow you access to all that your original would have access to. If you begin acting in a way unlike the original, the NPCs may take note and respond as they see fit. This mistaken identity may also work against you at times, as any enemies of your original will also believe you to be the original.
