I need to come up with a better name for this guy, and do a full shot of him. Also in the scene, an Imperial hound.

No wait. You said better name didn't you. Let's see, hmmmmm. I'm guessing a hero instead of a villain and you are including the Imperial Hound which suggests an empire. Myrmydon (after the legendary warriors led by Achilles) or The Thracian (after the Indo-Eropean tribes that produced a well known Gladiatorial style) might do, depending on the origin of course. Of course you could use a more mythological name such as Kratos (the enforcer for Zeus) or perhaps Mandanu (the Babylonian god of justice). There are a lot of characters using variations of ce3rtain names, because they sound so cool =) but I've never heard of a character named Cobrafire So I believe I'll suggest that.

No, practically everyone from the Empire would be classed as "bad guy" on the story Earth. Very few of them are afflicted with what we would consider a conscience. Since the emperor's name is Dagon, I should probably look at mythology more for the names of his servitors. This guy would be on the order of an Imperial troubleshooter, with extra emphasis on the shooting. He's one of the guys who roots out plots and executes the plotters, and then goes and has tea with his mother. Hell, among villains, he'd be considered too dangerous to let him live.

Aha, well Cobrafire might still work then. As for mythological names, Fenris (after the Norse wolf) or Kerberros (the three headed dog that guards the underworld. His name literally means "Demon of the Pit" Garm is his German equivalent) are possibilities. Others might include Nimrod (mighty hunter and king of evil - Bible), Ahriman (god of darkness, death and destruction - Persia), etc.

I think I would be partial to Rakshasa myself. In mythology, a male demon that can assume human form (or animal) and delights in
in spreading fear, confusion, chaos and destruction before feasting on human flesh. Pure evil by any definition.

The Rakshasa that appeared in F. Paul Wilson's Repairman Jack series were certainly creepy and deadly.

I'm gonna go with something less mythological or malevolent...well, unless you're like me and you see all bureaucrats as Satan's minions on Earth...and make him an Imperial Marshall. My idea is that, people like him travel the empire looking for trouble. They have limited authority during this phase of their work, but should they find something wrong that warrants Imperial notice, they can activate their full authority, even after that fact, and are authorized by the emperor to eliminate the threat. So, if he gets it in his head that you're a significant enough threat, he's empowered to wipe out your whole planet.
That's always considered Plan B, of course. The ideal is to fix the problem without having to destroy a planet. A city....well, you know, eggs...omelet.

Enforcer works, but what are his powers/abilities?

Like all these people, he's super-strong and fast, and hard to kill, but he's an energy projector, it's like a specialty he has, I haven't worked out the details in my head, yet.
