Alternate Identity

The Alternate Identity Background enables Characters to have 1, if not multiple forms of identification, allowing Characters to slip by mundane and perhaps mystical checks and balances into their identities. Each separate Alternate Identity is its own Background.

Alternate Identity
Traits Identity Strength
1 You have some stolen IDs, Driver’s Licenses and Passports. Nothing legal, just stolen IDs that resemble the Character, just enough to get past bouncers. System: No effect against Supernatural modes of detection. Mundane attempts to identify the Character suffer a +1difficulty. The IDs are simply stolen and have likely been reported as such.
2 Maybe you had someone hack into the DMV or Social Security Department, now you don’t have stolen IDs, you have a set of forged IDs, good ones too. System: No effect against Supernatural modes of detection. Mundane attempts to identify the Character suffer a +3difficulty. The identities cannot be overly special, such as a federal official, police officer, etc.
3 Not only do you have a set of skillfully forged IDs, but you’ve started to put a distance between the activities of your Alternate Identities, so much so you can fool mundane methods of determining who you are. System: No effect against Supernatural modes of detection. Mundane attempts to identify the Character double in difficulty and time. The identities can be moderately notable, such as a Fame x1 musician, private eye, doctor, etc.
4 Characters now may have an expertly woven fake identities and electronic backup, that are nigh unbreakable. By now Characters has put so much distance between their identities that they can fool basic supernatural methods of determining who you really are. System: Common Supernatural methods of determining identity may be fooled with this power at ST decision, it’s all in the wording. Common methods include; Aura Perception, Bone of Lies and Truth Revealed. Other methods are typically not denoted as "common." Mundane attempts to identify the Character require double the effort (tests), difficulty and time. The identities can be fairly notable, such as a police officer, low-level federal agent, Famex2 politician, etc.
5 Characters with this amount of Alternate Identity have all but completely separated their identities, almost to the point of being Multiple Personalities. System: All but the most specialized Supernatural methods of detection may be fooled with this level of Alternate Identity, at ST decision. Mundane methods are practically impossible requiring triple the effort (tests), difficulty and time. These identities can be very notable, such as a Police Captain, mid-level federal agent, fame x3 artist, etc.
