Background

DĀOYĪNG Operative Control Unit

Dāoyīng ((Blade Raptor)) units are trained as officers, non-commissioned officers, and field commanders. They study at the Military Academy of Polyvalent Command of Yingwo, a tiny mountain town that lives up to its name. (Yingwo translates to "Falcons Nest and is notable for dāoyīng, "knife-eagle" creatures with sharp claws and bad attitudes.)

Dāoyīng units, like their bird-of-prey namesake, take a top-down view. They look at threats from afar and make appropriate decisions with complete inplacability. They maximize the performance of troops under their command. They are trained to be the brains of the Invincible Army; the architects of their greatest victories.[1]


Translation

Daoying is made up of two characters, ‘Dao’ (刀) which covers in general all manner of knifes and swords, and ‘ying’ (鹰) which covers birds of prey. The background in the Third Offensive book states that the unit takes its name from an alien falcon native to the region of Yutang where the training academy for the Daoying Troops is located. Thanks to its sharp claws, the Yu Jing settlers named it ‘knife-falcon’ in their language. Chinese names for animals are generally literal and descriptive, beyond those few that have a unique character (e.g. cow is cow, yak is hair-cow, deer is deer, giraffe is long-neck-deer, kangaroo is bag-rat and platypus is duck-lip-beast.). ‘Dao’ rhymes with “Foul” minus the ‘l’ at the end, or “cow” minus the ‘w’ at the end. “Ying” rhymes with “thing”.

You could call them Blade Raptors, Knife Falcons, Razor Eagles, whatever you want.[2]
