This is a mischievous shadow creature that is a pest to its chosen human victim. This creature is rarely seen except its shadow which mimics the shadow of its victim. Only dogs can fully sense a Doppelganger. This shadow follows, moves and behaves in an identical manner to that of its victim. The Doppelganger makes noises and sound at the same time and in the same way as its host. However they do not like to embarrass their host. It has the ability to manifest in the same form of its victim and travel around. Thus friends of the victim will state that they saw them in places where the victim wasn’t. It would then do things that the host wouldn’t do and thus creates problems in the victims life.
