Shrink targetted you n1, which converted you to villager as per their interaction with killer.

No idea why you were given the cult icon, but from d1 onwards you were always blue

This game also features the visual bug.

Something must have changed in the 2 years I've been gone, this visual bug never used to exist.

Just a bit more, but regardless of the order that the actions took place, you still should have ended up as Cultist, so the fact that you didn't definitely indicates this as a gameplay bug on top of being a visual one.

As if you got culted before beign turned into blue, then the cult would have gone through.

If you were supposed to be culted after being turned into blue, you still should have been culted.

Actually, you're not supposed to be culted when shrink is on you. Shrink makes targets conversion immune, except for killers turning into blue.

Actually this makes sense. Ignore what I said above.

Town acts before Cultists do. That is the reason for the error.

My guess is that it has to do with the Shrink/Killer interaction. It likely has to do with whatever part of the code changing role icons. I would assume it doesn't take into account that Killer has been transformed into blue, so it changes the icon to cultist, whereas the actual conversion part of the role does take it into account, so it blocks the change.

I would guess if you attempt to replicate this with other conversion roles like Mason or Yakuza, the same thing would happen for those respective roles.
