Both are easy fixes, but I think we should address them now rather than later.
Valid concerns. In fact, I need to change my vote. The system works!

Also swapped the power names, because I think that's what I had suggested but not updated in the OP.

I like it. Or even "V-12 [or whatever Top Secret Experiment Code] Escapees".

I don't disagree with that, but I think a name referencing the experimentation they underwent distinguishing them from the "natural" versions (even though they will never exist in 'scape) is the way to go here.

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Leyline Phantoms) - Design

I think that we should still shorten "Phase Shift" to just "Shift" to match Blink. They sound like they go together more to me when both are just one word.

The scientific/experimental name is really growing on me. It feels weird and different from other units, which is a good thing for some spooky aliens. V-12 Escapees is fine to me, although I do think it'd be neat to avoid putting escapee in their name to leave open the interpretation that this is their intended purpose, and something sent them here.

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Leyline Phantoms) - Design

If we’re going the “escaped experiments” route, which is not my preference but understandable, V-12 sounds too close to the naming conventions used for Vydar soulborgs.

Subject Delta
Project Vanega Apexes
Code Blue Entities
Type Blue

Project 4300-Alpha Rejects

This is more random science-jargon sounding names. A question - are these experiments from Earth? The same far-future as Tetsuo?

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Leyline Phantoms) - Design

I like "Project Something Something".

"Velnesh" was kind of a cool species name. Do we want to go with that and something like "Project Velnesh Alphas"?

Project Velnesh Alphas is fine with me.
