Appearance

Many believe that the Wight derives its name from its appearance. First and foremost, it is pale (and 'wight' is a homonym to the word 'white'). Though, it is also known that the word Wight is derived from the Old English 'wiht' (meaning 'thing' or 'creature'), with relation to the Dutch/German term 'wicht' (meaning 'little child'), which most likely refers to the fact that most Wights are either incredibly thin and/or short in stature.
