I think there could be a special villager similar to wandering traders that spawn near villages or outposts and have special like weapons (that have suspiciously lost some durability), suspicious stew that has an equal chance of being good or bad, and poisonous potatoes. The Shady Trader could have gray skin (because it’s secretly an illager) a black cloak similar to that of Wandering Traders, and a black beard. They should also be neutral mobs and attack you with axes like vindicators. Trading with them could also fit into the new gossip feature, because villagers don’t really trust them. They could attack you if you have the bad omen effect, because it is mad at the fact you killed a pillager captain. The Hero of the Village potion effect could cause them to increase their trade prices. Zombies and maybe other mobs should avoid them because they, too, don’t trust them, or they could not be affected by them at all.
