  • The Protector can be used to spot shifts by protection a person they suspect of shifting, if the person under protection dies this can be a strong indication of a shift.
  • The Protector can protect the same target twice in a row if they are blocked or redirected the first time, only successful protections count.
  • Neither the Protector or their target are informed if an attack was successfully stopped.
