Name: Unknown, but is usually called the 'Aphotic Affliction'. To doctors, it is commonly known by Subject 049.
Age: Between 17-37 years old.
Gender: Unknown, rumored to be female due to body structure.
Weight: About 146 pounds.
Description: 049 is humanoid in appearance, however, the others are currently incapable of studying its face and body more fully, as it is covered in what appears to be the garb of the traditional “Plague Doctor” from 15-16th century Europe. This material is actually a part of 049’s body, as microscopic and genetic testing show it to be similar in structure to muscle, although it feels much like rough leather, and the mask much like ceramic. It was originally discovered in New York by local police. The resulting explosion caught the attention of Agent Sebastian Cornell, who was able to [DATA EXPUNGED] and sedate it. 049 does not speak, although it seems to understand English perfectly well, and seems completely docile until it tries to perform surgery.
049’s touch is invariably lethal to humans. After contact with 049’s hand(s), the victim (hereafter referred to as 049-2) suffers [DATA EXPUNGED] and dies within moments. 049 will then attempt to kill all humans it can see in a similar manner, supposedly to avoid interruption, before returning to 049-2. It produces a bag made of [DATA EXPUNGED] containing scalpels, needle, thread, and several vials of an as-yet-unidentified substance, from somewhere within its body (research has been unable to locate these tools when inside of 049 through X-ray and similar techniques) and begins dissecting 049-2, as well as inserting various chemicals into the body. After approximately 20 minutes, 049 will sew 049-2 back up and become docile once more.
After a period of a few minutes, 049-2 will resume vital signs and appears to reanimate. However, 049-2 seems completely without higher brain functions, and will wander aimlessly until it encounters another living human. At that point, 049-2's adrenaline and endorphin levels increase to approximately three-hundred(300) percent as it attempts to kill any human beings it can find, before returning to its mindless state and wandering until it comes across more humans. At this stage, termination with extreme prejudice is allowed. Failure to enforce this protocol outside of testing scenarios is punishable by termination.
Detailed autopsies of 049-2 have found several unusual substances (along with usual substances in large amounts) within the bodies, including [DATA EXPUNGED]. However, several have yet to be identified (researchers with level 3 or higher authorization, refer to Addendum C-1). 049 speaks only when it feels comfortable with the person or feels it needs to speak.
Gear: Scythe, scalpels, syringes with unknown substances, surgical needle and thread, and various vials.
