Traitor

It's me again and I need another translation. Didn't find it in the dictionary.

My idea would be to use the word gruth (to betray) as a base and then maybe add -aan or something similar. I found this thread https://www.thuum.org/viewthread.php?thread=972
but I'm not sure what the right suffix would be. Maybe there is a better word that I don't know.

I would be glad for help!

"Gruthiik" seems to be the best option.

Another more hypothetical way to say "traitor" would be to use the TESO word "Nihnzey" (betrayal = "poisoned brother") but instead of using "zey" (which seems to be a more general term, just like "dov") you'll use "zeymah" (a specific person, just like "dovah") which gives "Nihnzeymah".

Finally you could simply use a synonym like "Tahrodiis" which means "Treacherous".
