"Rise, my servants. Rise and serve me."
WhiteNight (T-03-46-A) is a highly powerful angelic Abnormality. It is the second form of the Plague Doctor, although the game treats it as an entirely new subject. It has a white, round head with a curved body, two red eyes, and five pairs of white, feathered wings. A halo floats above his head, and he wears a golden collar with the number '666' engraved into it. According to in-game text, it resembles an underdeveloped embryo. Its form as WhiteNight remains permanent throughout any future runs, and can only be reverted through losing all data via hard reset.
Its special ability will trigger when its Qliphoth counter reaches 0 OR when he makes his initial transformation from Plague Doctor to WhiteNight.
Its ability triggers the transformation of the twelve employees blessed by the Plague Doctor and strips the player of all control over time and the save state. WhiteNight will teleport to the main department room and remain there until it is suppressed. With an interval of a few minutes, WhiteNight will create a red ring that gradually expands, dealing Pale Damage to employees and Abnormalities that touch it. The ring will slowly fade out when it reaches the max distance. This attack will also revive fallen Apostles. Allowing it to remain breaching for too long will likely result in a Game Over. This can be prevented if the player generates enough PE-Boxes/Energy to proceed to the next day, uses the twelfth apostle to confess to One Sin and Hundreds of Good Deeds, or by suppressing WhiteNight.
If the player defeats WhiteNight with One Sin's "Confession" work, the 12th apostle will die about 10 seconds after confessing, as beams of light appear from an unknown source in the upper right, cutting through WhiteNight, dealing a continues 3330 raw Pale Damage, converted into 666 damage with WhiteNight's defenses. This will eventually kill WhiteNight as a loud scream can be heard and it will explode in a cross formation. This will not grant you WhiteNight's EGO weapon even if an employee attacks WhiteNight while this is happening.
If the player defeats WhiteNight without One Sin's "Confession" work, it will have a bloody explosion and return to the containment room, with the rest of Apostles dying and impaling themselves. Afterwards, you will get the Abnormality's E.G.O. weapon. This E.G.O. weapon can only be obtained by this way and cannot be purchased from the Abnormality's Details Tab.
WhiteNight's Qliphoth counter will decrease by 1 when not worked on for a certain amount of time (~90 seconds) or when getting a Bad work result. The player can increase the Qliphoth counter when the work result is Good or by chance when Normal. Depending on the mood it can heal or punish employee after work is completes. If the work result is Good all employees will recover both HP and SP. If the work result is Normal all the employees that are assigned to the department that WhiteNight is contained will recover both HP and SP. If the work result is Bad every employee that is assigned to the department that WhiteNight is contained will take high White Damage.
Similar to Plague Doctor, WhiteNight may switch containment rooms randomly with other Abnormalities each day, even after a retry. This may cause confusion in some departments. This is especially dangerous if you have Don't Touch Me. The change is at the start of the day, in the Deployment Phase, so the player can check the Abnormalities and change agents if WhiteNight is swapped with another Abnormality.
The exact details of his origin are currently unknown, though they are linked to the Plague Doctor.
WhiteNight's emotional state is divided into 3 sections, Bad, Normal, and Good. Completing 0-15 E Boxes will cause it to feel Distressed, completing 16-25 will cause it to feel Normal, and 26-35 will make it's mood result Happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 15 seconds. Its Qliphoth counter is 3.

Twelve Apostles Edit
Main Article: Apostles
The Twelve Apostles are employees who were blessed by the Plague Doctor, and were transformed into monstrous missionaries. They appear to be skinless, with the white and red markings on their body resembling muscles. They have a pair of white feathered wings, heeled feet as if they were wearing high-heeled shoes, beak-like noses, black and glowing red eyes, grey feathers around their neck, and a set of large, blunt teeth. Each carries a black weapon shaped like a cross, and retains the hairstyle they had when they were human. The Apostles will kill all remaining employees, and the player will not be able to regain control of the facility until the event is over.
However, only eleven employees will turn into missionaries. The twelfth Apostle is deemed a heretic by WhiteNight himself, and has their own unique appearance. They are mostly unchanged, but they wear a three eyed plague doctor mask stained with blood. Their exact function is currently unknown. However, under certain circumstances, the player can still control them. (The player can now assign the twelfth Apostle to confess to One Sin and Hundreds of Good Deeds to defeat WhiteNight at the cost of the employee/Apostle.)
- "The abnormality resembles new born baby. Though he looks rather grotesque to be called as a normal baby. Communication is possible, not in a normal way. Every word he says echoes through the whole room."
- "My disciples, who I blessed, shalt leave the way of evil that once thou wert following and find me. When the time comes, I shalt forgive your sins and descend to the earth thou art living on."
- "Employees who were treated by him, 12 people will walk around the room to deliver redemption to every single employee in the facility. Wings will sprout from their back, they will wear a beak mask and carry a cross that forgives all sins on their back."
- "Follow my teachings as I told thee. Thou wilt abandon flesh and be born again."
- "His disciples will be born again as a missionary, evangelizing to those who would help others. They…"
- "The time has come. The bell will ring. The new world will come. Rise, my servants. Rise and serve me. I am death and life. Darkness and light."

- WhiteNight is similar to Jesus Christ, evidenced by the twelve Apostles, the "forgiven sins", the "blessings", WhiteNight's "teachings", and the fact that WhiteNight can be defeated by the twelfth disciple at the cost of that employee (reference to Judas Iscariot betraying Jesus, then subsequently hanging himself)
- The collar WhiteNight wears has the number of the Beast from The Earth in Revelation (666), who was in turn the false prophet. It is possible that WhiteNight is a sort of interpretation of The Beast from the Earth, through teaching false prophecies, leading to destruction.
