The Serial Killer (or SK) is an independent role that does not win with the town or the mafia. He simply wants to kill everyone else. He wins if he survives to the end game (he is alone with one player). Often the SK will be able to eliminate one player during each day phase starting with Day 2. However some moderators do make this a night action.
Discovering the SK is much harder than catching the mafia because he acts alone. Many games with a SK also have a psychiatrist who can cure the SK, turning him into a vanilla townie.
