The necessity of any of these words (dublex *or* ygyde) is debatable.

The webpage is remarkable complete for a conlang in this respect.

Erff.... Maybe "ynacutu" = "noun religious technology manager".
Although I dont think Ygyde appears offhand to be able to express this *well* in
one word (as opposed to idiosyncratically). Even the English word has too
broad a reach and contradictory definitions when applied in different religions'

But neither 'attractive' nor 'craftsman' are known to reliably apply to angels,
as far as I understand.
