Field Notes Purple poltergeists who dwell in the darkness. They're easily identified by their gaudy green headwear. They think of themselves as sophisticated city-slickers, and sneer at their country-born brethren.

Etymology

  • "Geist" is the German word for ghost.
  • Metoro (メトロ) is the Japanese pronunciation of "metro", a loanword derived from the English used to refer to underground railways, which appears to be a vague reference to the fact that the metro-ghost is only found underground (i.e. in a cave and a tomb) in its original appearance. "Metro" is also an abbreviation of "metropolitan", which means urbane or sophisticated (in the manner of city-dwellers), which is alluded to by the Heroes II field notes.
