Inside all water is a spirit of mimicry. This spirit is what creates the reflections that dance along the water's surface as copies of what happens in the air above. So too though are the children of Danaa'd able to duplicate wonderous displays. This charm lets them truely copy the performances and speaches of another. So long as they duplicate word for word, step for step, which this charm lets them do, there is no difference between their version and the original. It does not duplicate the effects of charms except for Excellencies. At least so long as only Dragonblooded Excellencies were used for that. Combined with disguises this charm can let someone seemlessly replace high profile musicians or singers without having to cancel performances or in the Shogunate this charm was used by messangers to repeat word for word the commands of one superior to a populace.

Prerequisite Charms: Still-Pool-Reflection Technique
The Essence of Creation is like a great sea. Sorcery used in Creation creates ripples that wash through it unlike the more natural charms. Working in concert the Dragonblooded can make greater ripples beyond what their limits might normally have been. When working with a Sorcer who is casting a terrestial spell a Dragonblood with this charm can spend 2 Willpower points and the motes the spell requires and can cast it as well with them. Dragonblooded who are using this to copy the spells of one who is not an ancestor require Larceny 6 and Essence 6. Alternatively by using the Martyr affect a Dragonblood can give their life and copy even a Celestial Spell. There is an Occult version of this charm that requires Occult 5, Essence 5 and has as its prerequisite charm Seeing the Maker's Hand.
