The Syndromes symptoms included underdeveloped bodies, weakness and asthma. One such victim is Ulysses Adair, Devon’s son.

ADDAMS, Gomez & wife, Morticia
(The Addams Family)
( Cemetery-13
000 Cemetery Lane
Cemetery Ridge, USA
Gomez is an eccentric cigar-smoking millionaire lawyer who lives in a spooky gothic mansion with his slender wife, Morticia. The French language drove Gomez crazy with desire when spoken by his wife, Morticia. As Gomez would say "Tish!, when you speak French, it drives me wild, Cara Mia!" He would then grab her arm and plant a trail of kisses from her hand up to her waiting lips. Morticia's French supposedly helped clear up a sinus condition Gomez had for 22 years. One of Gomez's love poems stated "When I first saw you from afar, My heart flamed with fierce passion. And when you spoke French, ooh-la-la!..." Gomez kept his Garcia y Vegas cigars in a cigar store Indian statue that rested in his museum-like living room. When Gomez pulled the cigars from his unique holder, they were already lit. At times, Gomez lit his cigars by striking a match on his Butler's body or igniting it with a flame thrower. Gomez's wife, Morticia also enjoyed a good smoke. Except in her case, when she smoked, her entire body emitted a milky, misty cloud of vapor. Besides Gomez and Morticia, the Addams family included their portly son Pugsley Addams; their somber little girl Wednesday Thursday Addams; Grandmama "the witch" Addams; the bald Uncle Fester Frump; the hairy Cousin Itt; and Lurch, the family's towering zombie butler who answers the family gong with "You Rang?" Other residents are Thing, a disembodied hand; Kit Kat, a cowardly lion; and Cleopatra, an African strangling plant. When it came time to food, Morticia Addams prepared a number of strange delicacies for her family. Their daily diet included such entrees as baked iguana, breast of alligator, broiled elephant hooves, casserole of spleen (with a pinch of hemlock), fricassee of toad, marinated gizzard of lizard, soufflé of aardvark, and tongue of yak. The Adam’s man-eating plant Cleopatra also had a strange diet. Cleopatra was an African strangler plant whose main diet was chunks of red, fleshy meat [Cleo's favorite food was Zebra Burgers and Yak meatballs]. Morticia grew Cleopatra from a seed. The overly aggressive plant was always snuggling up to the family's visitors who didn't realize the plant's apparent affection was really Cleopatra's way of sizing up her next meal.
