Deputy

Role Description:

The Deputy will become Cop and gain their investigation abilities if the Cop ever dies.

Notes:

The Deputy will most often take over the Cop's role exactly as it was when the Cop died, which means that a Deputy-turned-Cop would not be able to investigate anyone if the Cop was vanillaized or if the Cop only had a limited amount of investigations that were all used up at the time of death. The Deputy may or may not be aware that they are a Deputy; Some are informed that they are a Vanilla Townie and will only find out that they were the Deputy if they ever end up taking over the Cop's duties/abilities. If the setup contains multiple Cops, the Deputy will sometimes become a Cop once the first Cop dies or in rare instances when the last Cop dies. If a host chooses the latter variant, the Deputy should not be self-aware, since you would otherwise be revealing to the Deputy that there are multiple Cops in the game. Some rare versions of the Deputy role will, upon becoming Cop, receive a list of all the former Cop's investigations. Another Deputy variant is one that must make a choice when the former Cop dies: Become a cop, or receive a list of all the former Cop's investigations.
