|Doppelgangers are essentially ghostly counterparts of other beings. As they are
shapeshifters, they can take the form of other creatures by reaching out and
touching a creature of the desired race. Similarly, they can change gender at
will. In their natural forms, doppelgangers are simply doughy, colorless
figures with no natural resistance whatsoever. Their ability to disguise
themselves makes them naturally good thieves and magicians, and their knowledge
of sleight of hand makes them talented illusionists as well. These skills are a
result of their evolution from the hunted gimps -- the gimps who survived were
those who could blend into their environment, and so this new race of
doppelgangers was formed.
