A blessed villager is very difficult to kill; they must either be voted or targeted twice in the same night in order to die. A blessed villager protected from death this way does not print out any special message, making it sometimes seem like the wolves did not kill that night or they targeted other difficult-to-kill roles such as monster. A blessed villager is not protected against a fallen angel, however. By default, only regular villagers may be blessed villagers, and even then the template is never given out to gunners, assassins, or cursed villagers. Priest has a once-per-game day ability to give the blessed villager template to someone.
Appearances in game modes
In Sleepy game mode, a priest appears at 10p and is always guaranteed to be the blessed villager, due to special logic.
