Leprosy is a disease that infects the skin and nerves. It is contagious.
People were having a peaceful time before the disease came to Hawaii.

When leprosy finally showed its symptoms, people were shocked, because people were surprised at the fact that people's limbs fell off.
More than 8,000 people were sent to an isolated island to prevent the disease from spreading.
This relates to the Scourge because people were tested to see if they had the Scourge, and if they tested positive, they were sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned colony for the people who had the Scourge. People who were about to be tested stayed here.
People on the leprosy colony were treated unfairly. They still had to work even though they had missing limbs. The people of Attic Island had to work through gut-wrenching pain.
