Domino Mask
When Don Diego dons his Domino Mask, the difficulty to tell he is actually Don Diego rises by 10 for no good reason. (He uses his Bluff skill to hide his identity, so he has a passive defence against detection of 31.)
The Belcadizan does not need to sleep, merely to enter a trance for 4 hours to gain the benefit of an extended rest; during this trance, she is aware enough of her environment to leave the trance if danger or necessity arises.

Don Diego is a noble Belcadizan scholar of the nastier things which go bump in the dark, which sometimes creeps out those who know him; no one really wants a lecture on slime. However, this is a cover for his true vocation—disguising himself as a heroic adventurer, “Manuel of the Plains”, who rides about righting wrongs and robbing the rich to give to the poor. He is greatly loved by the common folk in that identity.
