Aspiring young actress named Maggie (Paquin) gains chameleon-like powers after she is exposed to an electrical storm and a magic rune. Her powers are from a secret and ancient race called the Chameliel, who are able to hide in plain sight due to their shape shifting abilities. Maggie and a Chamelial named Mosaic (Morrow) must battle another Chameliel named Maniken who is intent on gaining the power of his dead wife and ruling the world.[2][3]

They go from New York, to Rome, to the North Pole, trying to stop Maniken from stealing the precious Chameleon stones and sacrificing her father, an Interpol agent, in a ceremony that will grant him the power of a god. During the battle, it is revealed the Mosaic is Maniken's son who volunteered to go after his father and stop him. They both tumbled into an icy gorge, never to rise again. Maggie then sneaks aboard an Interpol copter, overhearing her father vowing to destroy all Chameliel. Upon returning home, she vows to search for the remaining Chameleon stones as the new Mosaic.


Maggie's powers

Maggie's powers include shapeshifting, super strength, the ability to cling to surfaces allowing for scaling walls and ceilings (much like Spider-Man), seeing the DNA of other creatures (which is how she can compare humans to apes), regeneration, infrared vision, camouflage, and the ability to become invisible and mimic voices. Strangely, when Maggie becomes invisible, her outline gives off the appearance that she is completely naked, even though she is in fact wearing clothes. Why her clothes are not outlined when her body is invisible is never made clear.
