I thought a doppelganger was someone who looked exactly like you, but was in fact a completely different person? I thought it was almost exclusively used to describe a fictitious person that exists somewhere in the universe, that looks exactly like you (as if a twin), of whom you are either unaware or whom you might meet only by some astronomically unlikely chance OR ALSO to describe well known (celebrities) persons that look very much alike. such that they are often confused with each other.

Wheres, an alter ego, as presented in this article with examples, describes the same person having two distinct characters, that in most cases, look and act nothing alike, and are often not known to be the same person.

I removed the reference. It could be added back in as a "compare with" but I don't think it's appropriate as a translation. Cerulean Depths (talk) 19:35, 22 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

El Filibusterismo[edit]

Can you please add the fact that Crisostomo Ibarra had a false identity in Fili called Simoun? Edward Zeke Rivera (talk) 09:18, 10 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
