In the first series of Quantico, Nimah and Raina Amin are recruited by Miranda Shaw, following her belief that identical twins have built-in advantages over other agents.
There are a few supposed demonstrations of what these advantages could be:
- They are able to convince people they are a single agent.
- They are able to cross the US border under a single passport.
- They are able to pass information from terrorist cells.
Obviously, all of these "advantages" seem to also be possible with just a single agent, and there are also disadvantages; for example, injuries need to match exactly and heal at the same rate.
So: What specific advantages did Miranda see in recruiting twins?
