Nerds and geeks in fiction have an unfailing tradition of being physically frail (unless they're Genius Bruisers), barely able to walk as it is, are especially burdened with asthma and/or need for glasses and have terrible allergies. Bonus points if they also have a bad case of acne, snorting instead of laughing or having dorky laughs and having severely limited social skills. Actual nerd interests are a must.
