The ability to appear to be whoever the person viewing you most expects to see.
So if you're walking into a classified base? The guards see you as someone who's cleared to be there. If someone is meeting their lover in the garden, and you're there, they see you as him. And so forth.
It gets interesting when there's more than one person present, and they have different expectations.
That said, it's still incredibly useful.
That. Would. Rock.
Until the assassin happens to see you while waiting for someone else.
I'd take Permanent, Silent, Stilled, Quickened Polymorph Any Object at will. (Well aware that "Permanent" isn't metamagic)
First and foremost, it gives the ability to look like anyone or anything. Second, for added bonus to teh sneakiness, it lets you do the same thing to anyone else. I'm thinking, change [figure of importance] into, say, a desk, and turn yourself into what that person used to be. When you're all done causing havoc and having fun, turn into the secretary to ensure a safe escape (No one EVER pays attention to the secretary, except the boss that is currently a desk).
