The executioner

An executioner, also known as a hangman or headsman, is an official who carries out a sentence of capital punishment on a legally condemned person

The executioner was often shunned by the community he lived in. This is one reason the executioner wore a mask,another reason to protect the executioner from reprisal. The duties of a executioner included carrying out lesser punishments such as flogging,etc. They were also tasked to carry out “interrogations” .
