A psychotic criminal who wants everyone to die.
~ The summary of the Serial Killer.

The Serial Killer is one of the evil roles from the mystery RPG game Town of Salem. The Serial Killer wants to kill all people in the town and survive until the end of the game.


Official Backstory

During the day, he shakes hands and makes friends, claiming to be the town's best doctor. However, in the night, he slowly wanders home through the streets of Salem to his humble abode. When he arrives, he pulls out a large knife and cleans it with the greatest of care, a piece of equipment for his patients, or for his victims? Little does this (not really) innocent town know that this person has been striking fear into their hearts for several nights, for, in the day, he acts as if he wishes to help, but in the night, he preys upon the weak using his worn weapon; slowly makes one unlucky soul of the town suffer each night. He is their nightmare: a Serial Killer.

"Who is next?" this fiend thinks to himself, for only he truly knows who is next; every night, every citizen is left wondering what will happen. Every one of them. He finally decides to attack an elderly man known for his wise words throughout Salem. As he exits his home, he quickly, yet quietly, walks to the poor soul's house, hoping not to be seen. Finally, he arrives, and knocks on the elderly man's door. The man opens the door with a great warmness, inviting this killer inside. The instant he walks in and the door becomes shut, he pulls the overused weapon from inside his coat and pounces upon the man, taking him to the ground as a twisted smile forms across his face. He then slowly raises the large knife and drives it into the man's chest, laughing sadistically as he does so. After what little of a struggle the wise man put up is over, the fiend washes himself off, and returns to his home in the night for what little rest he can get before going back to his charade the next morning.
