Diversion Expert

The diversion expert’s job is to distract attention away from the criminal activities of other operatives. He can use illusions to cover the activities of the cult’s thieves or to create the appearance of a more imminent threat to draw the law away, such as a fire or a riot. The diversion expert can also use spells to cover the retreat of allies should they need it. A diversion expert usually works in concert with other cult members, often three to six tengu bravos.
