The Protector may each night target someone and protect their night action, if they have any, from being roleblocked or moved to another target.
This role can be very powerful for both town and mafia, which is why it's often restricted to being a 1-shot or 2-shot ability. Town can use it to ensure that an outed Cop is able to investigate another player, whereas mafia can use it in much the same way as a Strongman role modifier. The Protector is rarely allowed to target the same player on consecutive nights. A nerfed Protector might only be able to protect against either roleblocks or redirects specifically. Note that the Protector's action will not override a protection or someone commuting/hiding (if the ability is used on a kill ability).
