Doppelgängers become a target and retain a few superficial memories of the target as well as their own memories throughout the process. Before the doppelgängers copy a target they appear as an amorphous dark cloud. Doppelgängers copy the physical and mental state of the target. There is a chance the doppelgänger will believe it really is the person it is impersonating and in this case it loses its own memories and gains all of the memories of the target. Has the same items and gear as the creature that it copies. When the doppelgänger dies the gear and items disintegrate into dust. The doppelgänger can’t use magic unless it truly believes it is the target.
