There is no escaping this evil eye. Once you have met its fearsome gaze, you will never be alone again. Even now I feel the loathsome eye on me. Always it is on me. Where is it? Where is it? Oh, sweet gods...!

In early games, Ahriman was known as "Veteran". This may be a result of misinterpreting his Japanese name as "early man" (which would more likely be アーリーマン (ārī man?)). A veteran is a person with a long experience in a field, from Latin vetus, meaning "old".
