"Father abandoned child, wife husband, one brother another; for this illness seemed to strike through the breath and sight. And so they died. And none could be found to bury the dead for money or friendship. Members of a household brought their dead to a ditch as best they could, without priest, without divine offices ... great pits were dug and piled deep with the multitude of dead. And they died by the hundreds both day and night... And as soon as those ditches were filled more were dug ... And I, Agnolo di Tura, called the Fat, buried my five children with my own hands. And there were also those who were so sparsely covered with earth that the dogs dragged them forth and devoured many bodies throughout the city. There was no one who wept for any death, for all awaited death. And so many died that all believed it was the end of the world."
...and the third of the four shall be called Yersinia, known amongst mortals as the Witherer. He shall ride across the charred and burned battlefields, travelling to the few settlements that continue to exist in the doomed world, and with him shall fly a terrible plague on black wings, to sweep down upon the poor souls in his path…
…many shall perish with horrible suffering, parents shall watch their children wither and die before their eyes, lovers shall be torn from each others' arms by the horrid embrace of entropy, and the sole comfort to those left behind in the land of the living will be the knowledge that they are soon to follow…
…and he shall cause crops to wither and animals to perish in his wake, so that those who survive the plague will think longingly of even the first blight as a time of plenty, as they vainly seek to sate their hunger with ashes and dust...
- The name "Yersinia" comes from Yersinia Pestis, the scientific name of the bacterium responsible for the Black Death.
