I am very inspired by the look of the plague doctor. So much so in fact I also make masks, and part of Montol involves groups of similarly dressed people in guilds roaming the streets of Penzance on the 21st December every year and entertaining people at the various pubs they stop in. I have made a guild of quack doctors who play music, and add comedy to the evening, with out dated and terrifying cures and questionable sick notes for those who wish to stay in bed the following day. We also have a guise beast called Ratael, a sort of mutant plague-ridden Obby Oss in the form of a rat.
All except two of the members of the guild are called Dr. Theobald, and this fellow examines the stars from his tower to inform the other doctors if planets are aligning in a particular manner as a warning of plague. A very, very, very former Dr. Theobald has donated his body for medical research in the background.
