Ideal Self

“I couldn’t believe it the first time, either.”

A 1 Gift Disguise Power used by Elliot Broussard, created by lumiq.


A little pain in exchange for changing your whole *gender*? Elliot takes that in a heartbeat. Bone structure and hair length and build, and the ability to break it all back when he needs to.

The power works like metamorphosis. The sound of bones cracking and filling, skin splitting, the blurriness in Elliot’s eyes if he chooses to change their color. Despite the moments of internal bleeding that fix themselves in the process, Elliot is always satisfied with the end result. 🏳️‍⚧️

System Active

Exert your mind and spend 1 Minute applying a disguise. You may alter your physical appearance, not including clothes, to one that has a similar sex, weight, age, race, and height. Lasts one hour or until you choose to end the effect.

A disguise cannot affect your Attributes or other stats.


  • Cantrip (This Power has no Exertion cost, but its level is capped at 2 Gifts, and it cannot be upgraded further)
  • A/S/L? (You may alter your gender, age, and race.)


  • Mage (Activating this Power requires at least two committed Actions and involves intricate use of the arms, hands and either the voice or an object. If interrupted during activation, the Power Fails.)
    • Activation Ritual - Popping joints, splitting bones and skin for awhile, humming an appropriate song.
