Mimicking

When the mirror uses this ability, the brain acts as a data capture and storage device, and slowly alters the body to become more like the mirrored.

Mirroring is the ability of a telepath to form a telepathic connection to the victim, from which the hypothalamus draws genetic data, and the telepath undergoes a physical change to mimic the victim. This is a rare and intricate ability. The process begins in the eyes, where the DNA Alternate sees the person they intend to mirror. This eye contact creates a telepathic connection between the Alternate and the victim for just a moment, where the connection relays information between the two brains. The downloaded information is used to slowly modify the Alternate, taking on certain personality traits or physical talents of the victim. The telepathic connection allows the Alternate's chromosomes to change so that they are able to take on the victim's extraordinary abilities.


Mirroring begins with eyes and if the Alternate's view is obstructed, they are unable to establish the telepathic connection. The telepathic connection is vulnerable to telepathic influence, meaning that another telepath could prevent the Alternate from completing the download. A sudden break in focus would similarly disrupt the telepathic connection.


The information which the Alternate receives is imprecise. The Alternate cannot actively seek out specific information. The data the Alternate obtains is about what they have mirrored from the victim, like how to read sheet music or the limits to their new ability.


When the Alternate first learns a new skill or ability, they will experience a mental impression of how the victim felt at that moment. When the connection is broken, they will no longer experience what the victim feels. The Alternate does not 'feel' the emotion, rather, they piece together the emotion from the thoughts of the victim. The Alternate can only mirror one person at a time, and whenever they mirror a new victim, they lose all data downloaded from the last victim.
