* In Andreas D. Hesse's ''Schatten über Fraterna'' (lit. "Shadows above Fraterna"), almost the whole story takes place in the protagonist's sister's mind, after his sister literally fell into a coma and he himself got hit by a truck. As every person his sister knows has an alter ego in her mind, equipped with power according to the relationship to her, he slips into the body of the duke of Fraterna, only to notice that the personification of his evil side has just stolen the most vital artifact in the whole world (the reason for his sister's coma). He is assigned by the queen (the representation of his sister) to retrieve said artifact.
