I'm sorry, but this reminds me of an episode of Doctor Who (My first Tom Baker episode, actually) entitled Leisure Hive, where a species known as the Ardolins, who developed a technology called tachyonics, which were essentially temporary clones.

Although I bet yours is pulled off with less unintentional laughter than that episode did.

This genuinely reminded me of it.

So, ForeverZero, are you currently writing the novel? If so how's it going? And weren't you working on a computer-game script a while back? What came of that?

But if you must know... I know nothing of this 'novel', and I'm not surrently working on a script but I am still working on that story it was for. It's going to be four years old this October.

Anyway, I stopped writing. Completely. So there won't be any novels for, say, the rest of my life. Haha.

Anyway, any questions or comments about the topic? Taith needs tog et in here and throw down some input, he's the one writing it after all.

I am here my friend. I think his ability to mimic objects could be one of the ways they , they being the reapears, were able to fight the students of the Balde of Heaven and Hell. it would be usefull to mimic themselves and such.

Hmm. Well its up to you whether or not to include the "mirror" ability. If its used, if a Reaper makes a duplicate of himself, it won't be able to act for more than a couple of seconds, but he can use to overwhelm his enemy. Say he knowcks them back, he'll use a copy to wait for them in another spot, knock them somewhere else where the Reaper waits, and so on and so on.

The main thing is the sharing a soul with a familiar, though. I also want to note that there are notable personality differences depending on what "mode" the souls are in.

If the Reaper is in normal state (he has the primal half), he won't talk very often, and will likely just be a "silent monster" type of personality. Fearsome but silent. The familiar (having the logical half) will be the talkative one, and also very intelligent.

However. If the full soul is transferred into the familiar, the Reaper (having no soul) will not talk at all, nor show any emotion in general. The familiar (having both halves) will lose his calm, detached attitude and act a bit more reckless, but still with the same intellligence.
