I just caught on to something about Rtas 'Vadumee, aka Half-Jaw. Spelled in hebrew, the characters for 'VDM become AVDM- AVD would be the spelling of 'Avada' or "I destroy", which also appears in Harry Potter as a killing curse (Avada Kedavra-"I destroy as I speak").

All the elites have their surnames beginning with a glottal stop (') and ending with 'ee'. That little glottal stop has considerable religious significance.

Don't let the old post keep you from following up. Go to it.
