An eavesdropper who uses information to keep people quiet.
~ The summary of the Blackmailer.

The Blackmailer is one of the evil roles from the mystery RPG game Town of Salem. It is a blackmailer who works for the Mafia.


Official Backstory

A child that was never meant to talk throughout his whole life. A child that sits in a corner waiting and listening for any slight noise in his vicinity. He crouches to hear voices near by. He then hears the voices needed to make his plan go into action.

He was born in a family of five with the least talent, looks, and athletic ability. The only ability he had was the ability to find "things". The ability to share things throughout his life was unnecessary. He was an outcast, unwanted among the towns people, but he had one thing going for him. You could call this talent, but in all honesty, it was more of a will to find things. The one ability that made him well known in these parts of the area. The ability to find, control, and conquer that the naked eye can not see; the very ability that made him progress through the ranks instead of a dirt poor life. This is the ability to find the information needed to know their most precious thing that they can not share among each other.

It could be either past history, scandals, or hidden secrets. Then the ability to control what is needed to help him win; no matter the risk. This allows his true ability to show his conspiring intentions of bestowing upon the hush-hush tactic against his foes. To use whatever dirt needed to make his foes fall upon their knees in silence. This can be continuous for days or as short as he needs it to be. This is the true ability of conquering the foe. The foes that thought that his ability was pointless and useless throughout the town.

This one pointless ability will bring upon the destruction needed to change this town with his fellow brethren and sisters in the secret society of the Mafia.
