This spell creates 2-8 duplicates of the caster which will mimic all of his movements. Every time one of the duplicates is hit by any form of attack it will disappear. However, the spell doesn't protect the caster from every hit landed since it is possible that an enemy will attack the caster himself instead of an illusory copy.
The number of images generated for a pure caster is 1/2 caster levels (rounded down). However, the game may calculate caster levels incorrectly for dual or multiclass caster characters (unless fixed with a work-around like BG:EE v1.2.0).
There is also a bug that makes image copies immune to AoE spells, also remedied by recent fixes.
