Only thing here I am questioning is the actual name of the monsters.
Caius is actually a proper name, no different than if you named someone Peter or Bob.
It's also a masculine name on top of that.

Everyone in support of Caius wouldn't also be named Caius, especially not a priestess.
I know you picked a naming convention for the sake of forming an archetype, but it's an odd choice.

Well, here's what I'm thinking. all the monsters in the Shadows are one entity that takes many different forms. Essentially, they are all Caius, but Caius in different forms, some of those forms are masculine, some feminine.

Looking through again, you could essentially make all the cards target "Shadow" monsters instead of "Caius",
and they'd not only continue to work, but it would clear up the ability to give them different proper names.

Actually, now that I look, there are far too many real monsters that already use the word "Shadow" in it.

It's a weird situation, because I can see what you did and it works well in that "Caius" is so exclusive to the Monarch in YuGiOh,
but it also doesn't work as a name for every monster.
Perhaps the names could all be variant of "Caius", and it would still operate along the same lines as "roid" or "lswarm".

I know I'm being picky here, but it just feels like you gathered a group of people together all named "Chris" since it apparently works for male and females, lol.

Somewhere in a DARK Dimension, someone has said the phrase "It can be short for Caiustopher or Caiustine." :lol:
