Most entities with Essence manifest their Presence in a single way. Their nature is tied to this mode of existence – it may be native to them, or they may have transformed through some condition to a new one. Higher order beings may manifest in multiple ways. An entity may also take on the properties of a different type of Presence than their own through a power or feature that leverages Paradox. Without the shroud of Paradox, there is nothing to prevent them from being pulled apart into the multiple non-native manifestations.

Essential Presence: Manifests as an presence which typically comes about through predictable and expected organic consequences and is usually fully material. Its power may be eternal; it gains and fades as a result of its own volition generally.
