Typically a Plaguemaster's physical form is just as ravaged by disease as his victims, but due to the character's empathy for illness, they frequently enjoy [[TheImmune immunity]] to the negative effects of the diseases they carry, and may even have supernatural toughness ''because'' they're a walking plague ward. The Plaguemaster's obsession is often [[AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance reflected in his appearance]], either bloated with rot and cancerous growths, or wasted and skeletal... but the most insidious Plaguemasters appear perfectly normal, all the better to spread disease without suspicion (or they are [[TyphoidMary Typhoid Marys]]).

* ''VampireTheRequiem'' features the Morbus [[PrestigeClass bloodline]] of the Mekhet. Every single one carries a disease in their blood, they can only feed effectively off of diseased mortals, and they have a bloodline-only Discipline that allows them to diagnose, halt, and aid the spread of disease. They're also persona non grata in many domains, as the [=CDC=] popping in to inspect that sudden outbreak of the bubonic plague can risk the {{Masquerade}}.

* Europeans in particular were unknowingly these during the age of expansion and exploration into the New World. Because Europeans had lived in high population densities in a relatively small area that had regular contact with large mammals for thousands of years, they were hit with a multitude of plagues over the centuries. This naturally made them much more resistant to many deadly diseases than the natives to North and South America. By intention or not, explorers and settlers often introduced plagues like smallpox and meseals that would kill a majority of the local population.

* Rotund'jere the Necrolyte from ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'' was a priest who was purposefully infected with a horrible plague as a punishment for embezzling people dying from it, and cursed with longevity so he could suffer a slow death at the hands of the disease. Instead of dying, he became empowered by it and decided to 'share' his new gift with the world.
