HIRUKO
Mutants in which mutations spontaneously arose (It sounds less dumb in Japanese because one is in katakana)

Hiruko are mutants, whether spontaneously created or artificially engineered. Their flesh undergoes a variety of mutations, often resulting in them having a drastically different form from normal humans. Some of them flee from human society and hide themselves; others attempt to remain among humans whole concealing their true nature.

Hiruko mutations harbor great power, and they can adapt to any situation in an instant. If they need to get past a wall, they may secrete an acid to dissolve it. If they are a small child, they may reshape themselves into a vehicle in order to move faster.

However, the power of the Hiruko does not always obey their own will. They may lose the ability to use their mutations, or to keep them from surging wildly out of control. This is why Hiruko are seen by humans both as a limitless opportunity and a fearsome threat.

MIRACLE: MUTATION

When you see another Miracle, you can copy it.

Mutation does not have an effect of its own. Instead, your dormant genes allow you to copy a Miracle that you have witnessed, and perform it yourself.

You may freely select the target and other such details. You may only copy a Miracle that you were present in the same Scene to witness. If you are present, however, you can copy the Miracle even before it takes effect--the very moment of its use.

Your physical form imposes no restrictions on which Miracles you can perform. As a Hiruko, you can temporarily mutate your arm into a gun to perform Coup de Grace, or become the doppelganger of a well-known Exec to use M&A.

CONDITION: The [Used a Miracle fittingly] condition for Mutation is the same as that of the copied miracle.
