Disease, Contagion


The Crumbling Castle



First Appearance

Quiet Cacophony

The Plague Doctor is the first portrayal of the Fear of Disease. He wears a beak-nosed mask (if it even is a mask) and a long black robe. According to The Archive, he did not always appear like this and probably adopted this form in response to the black plague of Europe. In some stories, his presence will manifest as a mental disorder or hypochondria.

He enjoys going to festivities involving costumes such as carnivals, as he can spread diseases among the patrons without seeming unusual. He can sometimes be heard chuckling to himself, but rarely makes a sound other than this. An appearance of the Plague Doctor has also been known to cause plants to wither away as he walks past them.

The Plague Doctor often has servants called Oathbreakers. Greater Oathbreakers are called Mad Doctors, while lesser Oathbreakers are called Plague Bearers or Night Surgeons.

His domain is the Crumbling Castle.
