I'm not sure I see the purpose of this role. In what scenario would you want to heal another player's target? Why not just heal that player directly as the Doctor?

I think I see it now. If you target a role with directly killing capability, you completely nullify their ability. This is very comparable to the Escort.

Escort:
- Mostly useless against the Mafia (until the Godfather or Mafioso is killed).
- Counterattacked by the Serial Killer.
- Counterattacked by the Werewolf.
- Nullifies the Arsonist.

Druid:
- Nullifies the Mafia.
- Nullifies the Serial Killer.
- Partially nullifies the Werewolf (saves the direct target).
- Useless against the Arsonist.

You get the idea at this point. Both roles have their own pros and cons to them, but the Druid definitely comes out on top. It can very effectively deny kills for the Neutral Killing and Mafia without ever being a detriment to the Town. The reason the Escort is fairly balanced is because it can harm the Town and it has drawbacks to its heavy utility (the Druid does not). The role seems like it has potential, but I am unsure how exactly you could modify it.

This is less confirmable than the Escort; that counts for something.

Possibly the Druid should be unable to indirectly heal himself, so that the evils have a way out if they're getting chainblocked.
