The familiar, shrill whine emanated from Goffredo's body, igniting his aggression. The earlier misgivings having vanished, he morphed into a mechanism of murder. Time mired in needless concerns over morality was better spent immersed in battle. He had requested to be given a machine body to improve his efficiency, skill, and stamina, all for the sake of glory. Despite this, unrelated trifles would pester his mind on occasion.
Goffredo is an Italian variant transcription of an English and French masculine name Geoffrey (modern Jeffrey) or English and German Godfrey. Geoffrey was a Norman French name: the second element is Germanic frid "peace", but the first element may be either gawia "territory", walha "foreign" or gisil "hostage"; it is possible that two or more names merged into a single form. Godfrey derived from the Germanic name Godafrid, which meant "peace of god" from the Germanic elements god "god" and frid "peace". The Normans introduced both names to England where it became common among the nobility during the Middle Ages.
