Noun
An illness that is regrettably common among male characters in otherwise wonderful works of literature. It has been known to turn its victims into wishy-washy "spineless fools". Symptoms include indecisiveness, an inability to take action, a tendency to loiter around and failure to contribute anything positive to the story.
