|Ability To||Psychically appear in two places at once|
Also Known As
- Binary Presence/Dual Presence
This is the ability to psychically manifest a physical presence in two places at once.
One with this ability can psychically manifest a doppelgänger of oneself from an alternate reality, at will. In addition, one could, in some cases, psychically control the location in which the doppelgänger is manifested, at will. Furthermore, one could, in some times, psychically perceive and communicate with the doppelgänger, at will. One could also, in some cases, psychically control the doppelgänger's thoughts and compel the doppelgänger's actions, at will. One could even, in some cases, psychically establish a rapport with one's doppelgänger, allowing oneself to also be summoned, at will.
Not every Bilocator has control over when the ability is used. Some users may be in danger, or feel stress, or simply imagine a scenario in which they made an alternate decision. Later on, that same person might hear from friends or loved ones, saying that they were seen somewhere that they know they never visited, doing something that they never did.
This function of this ability, in fact, lies at the root of the concept of the 'evil twin'. The doppelgänger is similar in appearance to the user, but comes from a different reality, born and raised in different life circumstances. When they manifest into the user's reality, there is the possibility that the doppelgänger will be evil (or otherwise divergent from the user's moral alignment).
