|Appeared in|| "Poveglia Island"|
"Bewitched and Bothered"
Poveglia Island, off the coast of Venice, Italy, is one of the world's darkest epicenters.
According to legend, the island was formed from the ashes of burned plague victims, criminals and mental patients who were exiled there. The island was essentially a death sentence, as for the majority of the people there died from the plague. Hundreds of thousands of people were said to be burned to death in the plague fields. Many people on the boats to the island were guided there by the 'Doctors', who wore a mask that had two circle eyes and a long snout. The snout was filled with herbs that acted like a filter from the illness. The herbs were also burned to purify the air around the doctors. Even though the masks saved some of the doctor's lives, they were terrifying for the people to see right before they were sentenced to death or mental illness.
