EFFECT

DESCRIPTION

The superhero has constructed at least one false persona, in addition to his every-day identity and his adventuring identity. The usefulness and depth of this alternate identity both depend on how many JPs the superhero invests in it. The superhero can have multiple Additional Identities. The superhero must purchase them separately.

  • Level 2 (2 JP): Expert Forgeries. His secondary identity is quite well developed. It includes all of the above, plus a driver’s license, passport, work permits, multiple bank accounts, rent and property records, criminal records, and school records. DC 20 to reveal this identity as fake.
  • Level 3 (3 JP): Superb Forgeries. His secondary identity has a great deal of substantiating background evidence.
