Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. This Artifact changes its appearance into an Object within the category of forms of identification. This lasts until you decide to end the Effect, which may be done as a Free Action.

The new appearance is illusory; it will hold up to scrutiny, but its composition is not altered and it gains no new functionality.
