Ages and eons ago, I asked people offhandedly if someone knew the character for the voiceless velar frictive (throat clearing sound found in Scottish and Arabic and Hebrew), and someone pointed out it's X. Well I hated that option, because it's so vague. So I found an alternative: ḥ ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E1%B8%A4 )

Not only is it more obvious that it's not an ordinary letter, it has the added benefit of resembling what I was already using (bold/cap. H or HK), and looks better than using the X.

This is good, because ḥ is a common sound in Trai'Pahg'Nan'Nog. In fact, a fair number of ordinary H sounds in TPNN can be replaced with ḥ. Like Shao'Kehn can also be pronounced Shao'Ḥen. Also, an alternative to Grah'Bahn (Deity of Life) is Ḥrah'Bahn.
