Town Protectives are a group of roles in the Town. Their main function is to protect other members of the Town, either by saving their life or sacrificing themselves to kill an evil role.

The existence of this alignment is crucial in setting the evil-doers back, and turns every night into a battle of wits among the protective roles and the evil-doers. It is important for roles of this alignment to anticipate the victim that night and understand the risk in not protecting obvious options, like any confirmed Town role, especially the Jailor. Currently, only four roles exist in this alignment: Doctor, Bodyguard, Crusader and Trapper.

Note that although the Guardian Angel acts as a Town Protective role to their target, it is considered as a Neutral Benign. This is because it's target never changes, it doesn't harm others, and their target could be evil.

Some Town Protective roles also have the ability to save themselves once every game. This makes them more difficult to deal with even if their identity has been compromised.

Messages received when saved:

"You were attacked but someone nursed you back to health!" Doctor's target.

"Your target was attacked last night!" Doctor's message.

"You were attacked but someone protected you!" Crusader's target.

"You were attacked but someone fought off your attacker!" Bodyguard's target.

"An Arsonist tried to douse you in gas but a Bodyguard fought off your attacker!" Bodyguard's target when an Arsonist tried to douse them.

"You were killed protecting your target!" Bodyguard's message.

"You were attacked but a trap protected you!" Trapper's target.

"You were caught in a trap!" Trapper's victim.
