A young man's godfather was death. When the young man came of age Death came to him and said “Now you shall receive your godfather’s present. I will turn you into a famous physician". Death gave him the ability to heal anyone as long as he saw death near the head of the patient.
Death is the godfather of the physician. He gives the physician the gift to heal anyone as long as he allows it. When the physician heals someone Death didn't want to he takes the physician's life. Death tells him "You are finished. Now it is your turn”.
Death takes the life of the physician when the physician goes against Death's words. The physician cheated Death twice by turning the body of the patient so he could heal them. Death becomes angry and decides to blow out his candle that gives life Death made the physician think he was going to save him but "the little piece fell down and went out. The physician immediately fell to the ground, and he too was now in the hands of Death".
