A dying race due to their reviled status among most humanoids combined with their extremely low birthrate. Dopplegangers are creatures able to assume the shape of any humanoid creature they have seen. This evolutionary development assisted the race in feeding on their desired staple, humanoids, and thus they are feared and loathed throughout the Cunaerai by the races whom they have infiltrated from time to time and feasted upon. As their number and power has dwindled drastically over the millennia, most have adopted a different diet, though flesh is something craved by all dopplegangers on an instinctual level. Very small numbers of these creatures are spread all throughout the Cunaerai, though they are mostly found in the great cities of Semimia, Jedaal City, and Regia, where they may easily hide and are nominally protected by the laws governing such places. Some small bands may still roam the ancient lands of Cunai, Shade Reach, Sengt, and even Vassara in the East where they sell their services as discreet assassins to the nobility there. The Pharoah of Vhahl’s Vizier of Masks (Spies) is said to be a doppleganger. In many civilized lands, when these creatures discovered they are hunted to the death, much like orcs and goblins.
