The Chessmaster gets their name from his ability to manipulate people and events as if they were pieces on a chessboard as well as their ability to "think three moves ahead." Chessmasters tug at their strings of influence, patiently move their pieces into places that often seem harmless or pointless until the trap is closed, and get innocent Unwitting Pawns (who else?) to do all the heavy lifting. The best will also have layers upon layers of misdirection and backup plans in case some unexpected hero appears to gum up the works.
