Venetian Plague Mask/The Seven Silences

Question

Vomher    7

Was the plague mask worn by the Council of Venice agent in The Seven Silences a standard-issue mask? If so, are they part of the uniform for a particular type of agents, such as medical or otherwise? Or was its sole purpose to hide her face and mask her voice? It was really cool to see either way! It is a traditional mask for Carnival in Venice, although the styles utilized for the festivities have an entirely different beak style. But then again, Banwell's beautiful works were based on the historical masks and not the stylized ones. It would make sense for Venice to still employ modernized masks for some use or another!

Not standard Council of Venice field wear...but pulled from their stocks, perhaps, and with a very particular purpose here. But yeah, your character would be right in thinking, "They don't normally wear that..."
