Doppelgänger

A doppelgänger is a type of spirit that takes on the appearance of a living person, creating an exact duplicate or alter ego of that person. Typically, the doppelgänger has maleficent intentions and tries to interfere with and damage the victim’s personal life and reputation. According to legend, the doppelgänger usually will not appear before the person it is doubling. In the rare occasions when this does occur, it is considered a bad omen and the person usually dies shortly afterwards. Although it is extremely difficult to distinguish a doppelgänger from the actual person, doppelgängers do not cast shadows and do not reflect their images upon bodies of water or in mirrors.
