Mafia Database


Role Description:

The Deflector may each night target a player and cause all night actions directed at that player to be redirected to a second player also chosen by the Deflector.


The Deflector may or may not be able to self-target (if it can self-target, it's usually called a Beguiler). Most often, they will not be allowed to target the same person on consecutive nights. The Deflector's ability can be very powerful if successfully used as a protection role; By targeting a Cop they would be protecting the Cop from both kills and roleblocks. For a quirky variant of this role, look up Leprechaun.

Role of the Day

The Tailor may each night tailor a player, causing that player to be viewed as the opposite of their true alignment if investigated by any Cop abilities on that same night.
