Why es and not esta? Is it referring to being a man or to being weak?

It's referring to a man, who happens to be weak. It's usually ser when you have a predicate noun (man, here).

Él es débil significa, que su personaje es débil... él está débil significa que por ejemplo él es débil (ahora) porque tiene fiebre
