A virtual novice substitutes a active novice. Like in "you need an active novice to perform an action". So if you want, the virtual novice can be that active novice you need. You don't need a actual novice figure on an island to use the virtual novice.
But (there is always a but): You may not use the virtual novice to get to the temple. There you will need a real figure (in your player color).
So, there is only two exceptions for using the virtual novice:
1. You can not use a virtual novice to get a virtual novice (that would be passing forever, if you have a shrine on that island)
2. You may not use a virtual novice for moving into the temple.
So, if you have a shrine on the island that leads to a temple tile of your choice, and you do not have a real figure on that island, you must not use the virtual novice to go there (because you can not place a figure in your player color there).
