Steal Visage (Su) A princess-doll can duplicate appearance of a humanoid creature by having a droplet of the subject's blood smeared on its forehead. This works like disguise self effect, except it allows taking humanoid appearance, duplicates specific individual and lasts for 24 or more hours. If a droplet of princess-doll oil is smeared on the subject's forehead at the same time, the subject has their appearance changed into a ordinary-looking member of their race, age category, and gender until the subject dies, the illusion is broken, or a curse is removed. As long as the subject remains alive and transformed, the princess-doll retains the appearance of the subject, potentially extending steal visage duration indefinitely, recognizes people and places familiar to the subject, and have general sense of the subject history. This is a curse and illusion (glamer) effect.

Princes-dolls were designed as decoys to protect princesses from kidnappers and assassins, but in time they were also re-purposed as tools of kidnapping, assassination, and political intrigues.

Princess-dolls are instilled with artificial intelligence that lets them adapt to their role though they are not infallible. A princess-doll follows general instructions of the person owning its control token, a miniature of itself created at the same time as the princess-doll which changes appearance to match the princess-doll current visage. The instructions have to be told to princess-doll personally, in a shared language—there is no telepathic link between each other. A princess-doll that received no orders, or whose control token was destroyed does her best to pretend she is her current visage.
