A few enemy names.
« on: June 17, 2011, 03:13:41 am »
These are from a near-future scifi/cyberpunkish thing, with robots and biomonsters. There's a heavy Chinese mafia bent to it too.

ラヴィアン
ドーガン
セイヂ
メルゴス
リザウガ

These take their place alongside the likes of Crimson, Nouvelle Vague, Meteoric, Brigadier, Griphunter, War Cry, Peace Lizard, Skeletor, Firedrake and the like, so no well-defined mythological bent as far as I can tell.

A google search for ラヴィアン brings up ラヴィアン蓉子, which apparently has something to do with fortune telling (it may be the name of a famous fortune teller). I'd probably romanize it as "Lavian".

ドーガン can be "Dohgan" or "Dorgan". It also brought up the wiki article for Byron Dorgan, a North Carolina senate member (not that I think that has anything to do with your game).

I kept seeing セイヂ romanized as "Seiji". No relevant information.

メルゴス is Melgoth/Mergoth. No real relevant information on google.

リザウガ didn't have any important google matches, except now I know what game this is from. I'd call it R/Lizauger.
