So I was listening to the Night Vale episode “The Phone Call” and I heard this part again:

"A balaclava-clad man wearing a mitre, cloak, and a giant silver star, and speaking through a vocoder — you know, the man we all believe to be the Sheriff of Night Vale? — announced this morning that all citizens should prepare their town for war."

and I was like what even is a balaclava, so I looked it up


And I looked up what a mitre looks like and


So in conclusion:


This is the Night Vale Sheriff.

This is the leader of the Sheriff’s Secret Police.
