  • Need name for SHADOW elite guard

    So if Cobra (from GI Joe) has the Crimson Guard, what would Freedom City's SHADOW call its elite force?

    Re: Need name for SHADOW elite guard

    The name Umbra jumped in my head:
    um·braˈəmbrə/
    noun
    • the fully shaded inner region of a shadow cast by an opaque object, especially the area on the earth or moon experiencing the total phase of an eclipse.
      • ASTRONOMY
        the dark central part of a sunspot.
      • shadow or darkness.


    Umbra Guard or Umbra Elite might work as a group name. Maybe build a clever acronym out of it?

            SHADOW's elite troops are called the Umbra Guard in Agents of Freedom.

              Ah, I guess I was "remembering" and not "inspired". :P

                I would suggest "The Vantablack" for a truly elite SHADOW strike team, or paramilitary super-powered team. The science and inspiration behind the term can be found here:

                    How about The Gloom Patrol?

                      "Noctis Excubius" is Latin for "Night Guard".

                        If my extremely amateurish hobbyist Latin is correct, it should be Noctis Excubitor, although I'm not sure if excubitor has the meaning of 'military unit for protection' that English guard does. And while word order means very little in Latin, coming from a language where it does, I personally prefer the default Latin word order of Excubitor Noctis.

                        This is hilarious and from now on all my characters shall call them this.
