Welcome to Mosel, Germany, home of Friedrich and Gretchen Wagner.
The Doctor is in…or Doctors, as you soon realize. You meet Doctors Friedrich and Gretchen Wagner as they arrive to battle a deadly bout of cholera plaguing your little hamlet.
“Combating cholera requires the strictest cleanliness,” Gretchen proclaims from her majestic, floating flying machine. “All must be cleansed.”
“Chloride of lime to cleanse the surfaces of yards and drains,” advises Friedrich from beside her. “Or quick lime will do in a pinch,” he adds as he digs in to the delectable pineapple found on nearby islands.
As the airship lands, it billows crisp, vibrant scents: stone fruits and citrus so sweet you can almost taste it. You inhale…and smile. All will be well now.
Later, you approach and show them a long scratch that will not heal. Gretchen eyes its redness and swelling before declaring simply, “Honey.” She turns to study the next patient.
Friedrich steps up, looking at you with kindly eyes. “Apply a salve of honey several times a day. Cover it and keep it clean and dry,” he advises. “Nothing will be able to fester and the body will heal itself.”
You thank them, but before you can leave, Friedrich asks, “By chance, do you know of the azure elderflower?”
“I have heard of it,” you reply. “But alas, there are none to be found here.”
The exchange catches Gretchen’s attention. “How about the eternal flame?” she asks, blue eyes piercing you keenly.
“Gretchen…” Friedrich says, as if in warning.
“No harm in the question,” she replies, persistent.
“I’ve not heard of that, I’m afraid,” you say, apologetic. You want to help after all they’ve done, but it somehow feels as though you let them down.
“Pity,” Gretchen says. Friedrich thanks you and sends you on your way.
Your curiosity is roused. Already you see the inner workings of their partnership. With her golden hair twisted up and out of her eyes, the better to peer into the distance, Gretchen is the visionary, able to see past the real world into the realm of the possible. With his dark, well-trimmed beard and just-so suit and tie, Friedrich is the implementer, able to take Gretchen’s vision and make it reality. Together they form a formidable physician duo, revolutionizing remedies for the benefit of all.
You realize something startling: you want to be a part of this.
The journey had only just begun.
