Story:

The Doppelgänger is a being that is seen as an evil or opposite twin. They are said to be responsible for much of people’s bad luck. They are usually seen just at the corner of one’s eye, making it impossible to just be a reflection. Doppelgänger are known to cause misfortune not only on the person they are a copy of, but on that person’s family as well. If someone sees your Doppelgänger they are said to quickly fall ill. If you see your own, it may result in death.
