It only shields from direct attacks. Rampages, and Astral attacks will still go through. It isn't a complete shield.

I generally dislike protective Mafia roles since they know who to protect and deserve to die if they get shot by Vigi. Since Ranked doesn't have NK, I agree that the protect ability acts as another unnecessary counter to Vigi. The rest of the role looks interesting if not a little weak.

No. Not at all.


It is nothing like disguiser.

1) It effects Escorts/Consorts
2) It effects Killing roles
3) It effects Tis.

Please double check the notifications section for further differences.

The counter argument here is to have the Chauffeur die in place of the shot/attacked player. Remember Chauffeur can target town too.
