They look human, and they mingle with the sick and diseased, but there is no benevolence in their attention to the ill. No pity for the suffering of mankind. They simply chose this form because it was the simplest to replicate, having to only shift their appearance slightly to adapt to an acceptable sight on any street corner so long ago.
Should two of these creatures cross each other's path, there is no greeting, no acknowledgement of their presence. They simply pass by, or hover over the sickly individual on opposite sides of his deathbed.
The only telltale sign that would give away these creatures unearthly origins is their movement: they seem to glide, unable to mimic the cadence of a human step.
Of course, you'd also realize they weren't human if you were to unmask them.
I wouldn't advise trying it.
Figure is 10" tall. Made of mixed media, from paper mache to fabric.
