Collective nouns and Plurals for E&P characters

On a current thread in Gameplay Help & Tactics some of us veered off-topic in considering the plural of Proteus (Proteii?) and Marjana (Marjanae?). My brain then took a further turn (as it is wont to do) and thought there should be collective nouns for, say, three or more of a particular hero in your roster. A block of Proteii, for example, or a burn of Gravemakers. A gallop of Grimbles. A skulk of Margarets. A pierce of Seshats. A cleanse of Rigards. That sort of thing. I’m sure you can do better.

(While I was typing out the first paragraph the forum software suggested that this topic is similar to the one about playing while you poo. It really isn’t. Or at least that isn’t what I meant when I started it…)

The last one on your list is naughty. Rook may allow it but I’m not sure I should.
