- Bodyguard – Protects a player against a direct attack.
- Cleric – Casts a barrier that grants Powerful Defense to a player and cures Poison.

The Town Support alignment includes roles that buff allies in various ways. Here are all the TS roles:
- Amnesiac – Will automatically remember the role of the first Town person to die at night. Restricted to Townies only.
- Admirer – Twice per game, the Admirer can propose to another player. If they accept, they become Lifelinked and if one dies, the other dies too. Twice per game, the Admirer can care for their lover, which gives them Powerful Defense and cleanses debuffs. The Admirer can only be Lifelinked to one player.
- Tavern Keeper – Can Role Block another player, which prevents them from acting that night.

The TS roles spice up gameplay by adding various twists that help protect players and prevent enemies from acting.
5. Town Power
The Town Power alignment includes roles that have authority and great power in the town and can take initiative. Here are all the TP roles:
- Jailor – Select a player to put in jail. Then, they can talk to the jailed player and execute them with an Unstoppable Attack. However, if they execute a townie, they lose their ability to jail people.
- Major – You can reveal yourself as the Mayor during the day. Then, your votes count as three and you’ll be able to whisper to other players.

- Prosecutor – Can trial any player and automatically find them guilty. This is ideal for killing players with extremely high defense.
With great power comes great responsibility and that’s what TP roles are for. If you’re not afraid to take initiative and risk a bit, these roles are extremely useful.

Similar to Town roles, Neutral roles are also split into further subcategories based on the role’s alignment, and each alignment includes multiple roles. In this roles guide for Town of Salem 2, we will examine each Neutral Alignment and the roles within it.

4. Coven Deception
The Coven Deception alignment includes roles that deceive Townies and cause them to believe they are on their side. Here are all the CD roles:
- Medusa – Can Stone Gaze a player each night. If that player dies, only Coven members will see their role and last will.
- Illusionist – Makes a player appear innocent and good to everyone else.
- Dreamweaver – Can invade other players’ dreams and drive them insane. Being Insane prevents players from using abilities during the day, causes them to vote randomly, and makes them attack random players at night.

The CD roles are ideal for messing with other players who try to gain as much information as possible by giving them false info.
Game Mode Exclusive Roles
Lastly, there are two roles that appear only in exclusive game modes. Here are both of them:
- Vampire – Can bite someone at night. If the target is a Townie or Juster, they become a Vampire. If they are already vampires, deal a Basic Attack.
