It see's "shapechanging" as "Illusion?"
(Going to look up the Eye of Agamotto)
Wouldn't anything that's not a being's true form be considered an illusion? The Eye of Agamotto could verify beings' identities, and the identity of a Skrull is a Skrull, no matter what shape they've taken.
It's supposed to see through any lies and disguises, along with a variety of user uses. It's the artifact of a god, after all.
Well, there you go. Shapeshifting ought to count under "disguises," right?
I'm thinking that you both should be correct AS LONG AS THE SKRULL KNOWS it's a skrull.
That doesn't matter. The Eye was capable of verifying that Nightcrawler was completely human and had no demonic blood even though Nightcrawler himself didn't know anything about his origins.
I think he's referring to the idea of sleeper technology. Like, would the Eye be able to distinguish a Skrull from the person he's impersonating if the Skrull himself has been brainwashed to believe he's that person? Like the Sharon who's not married to Helo on BSG's first season.
I think the answer's yes, the Eye should be able to distinguish them still. It's a magical artifact from an enlightened, godlike figure; shouldn't it have better knowledge of some truths than even the person to whom they apply?
Yes. I mean, it's not a polygraph, after all.
To continue the analogy, Baltar's Cylon detector worked on Boomer even when she didn't know she was a Cylon.
Man, I miss BSG.
