The Dark Reflection

When you take on the mantle of The Dark Reflection you are accepting the role as someone that epitomises what the Lead seeks. However, you have a distinctly different attitude to the use of what you have attained from that of The Idol. You will be challenged on your beliefs by the Lead and may be converted or overcome by the lead. This is a great way to challenge a core belief of your character without building a whole story of your own around it.

You are a background figure during the Persecution, possibly a friend of The Persecutor or The Impetus. Maybe even as an antagonist of The Idol.
During the Opportunity you start to take note of the rise of the Lead. But, mock them for their reliance on the ideals of The Idol and how they are holding them back.
Having seduced the Lead into Weakness you applaud your new friend’s successes and dismiss their moral doubts as irrelevant.
Things come to a head during the Ordeal and you must convince the lead that your path is the true way or overcome them in their chosen field. Of course, there is always a chance that you will be redeemed by the Lead and change your own ways.
If you are overcome by the lead you are unlikely to play much part in the Fulfilment. However if you have come to see eye to eye, then perhaps you will now become firm friends and allies.
