Technically the popular version of Wight refers to a Wraith-like creature. The difference being a Wight has a decayed soul in residence. In old times it was said as Wiht, which referred to a living "creature".

So we could technically be a Wiht in the old Norse, while the barrows Brothers would be Wights in the modern sense.

A Lich is very similar but uses a phylactery to bind the intellect to. Which since that seems similar to how Arrav was kept 'alive', might almost make them a Lich. Though that would depend on if he'd have had any power over undead if freed from the Necromancers controls.

Though there is a lot of possibilities to what we could be, since the Anima Munid is also stirring the same pot.

What we are could be very simple. we're human, but with a pinch of something that let's us be everything we can be. No having to Master just one skill over a lifetime or be a Master of None. Like the Stone of Jas can store knowledge that is easy to access and use. Maybe we've been given something similar of our very own?

That might also explain why Sliske's siphoning us could have effected the Barrows Brother. Just like drawing power from the any Artefact linked to the SoJ builds a link to it. It could just be that Sliske really didn't understand anything about us beyond what Guthix foisted on us, and that could be the critical mistake.

Does that make us a Wight? Probably not, at the end of the day it depend on Gielinor's version of exactly what a Wight is. Without that we are just howling at the moon.
