Translated from German, the word Weiss means white. The name of the frame became Weiss, it's my girlfriend's favorite robot character, cause it reminded her of it and she saw him as being very protective like a knight. He will be featured in her fan fic. In it he was experimented on by Alad V to become Typhus or as we all knew him the Locust.
Reason I named him Typhus: Typhus is any of several similar diseases caused by Rickettsia bacteria. The name comes from the Greek "Typhos" meaning smoky or hazy, describing the state of mind of those affected with typhus. The causative organism Rickettsia is an obligate parasite bacterium that cannot survive for long outside living cells. Typhus should not be confused with typhoid fever. While "typhoid" means "typhus-like", the diseases are distinct and are caused by different species of bacteria.
The first reliable description of the disease appears during the Spanish siege of Moorish Granada in 1489. These accounts include descriptions of fever and red spots over arms, back, and chest, progressing to delirium, gangrenous sores, and the stink of rotting flesh. During the siege, the Spaniards lost 3,000 men to enemy action, but an additional 17,000 died of typhus.
Some of the symptoms include:
extremely high fevers
rashes and severe muscle pain.
