Whats the name of the mask with the long nose?

Ive been searching for the origin on those masks forever and i cant find it. I heard it was worn by people trying to guide lost souls to their destination. Is this true or just a missunderstanding on my part?

Yeah the bird masks are traditional plague doctor masks. The inside of the beak was stuffed with herbs and spices because they believed it protected them for disease in the "bad air". Sometimes they had red tinted lenses in the eyes too.

Those were worn by doctors during The Plague or Black Death. I believe it's just called "The Doctor" in the game.
