Always blame REDX.
Reason: powerful shredded body with pointed legs and head.
Reason: It looks like a scorpion which causes panic to it's pray.
Skorpian - Imperium. Being rather scientific, they probably wouldn't use a name that was outrageous, but instead, something that described them. The closest relative that they're familiar with would be a scorpion, so it's logical to use a similar name for these beasts.
Poisōna - Keepers. Being more mythic and open in their beliefs, they would use a name that is more artistic in nature.
Russians troll each other just as badly as they troll us, so we can take comfort in the fact that they'll get trolled eventually, too.Spoiler Text
Because he seems like a toxic plague i would suggest:
For Keepers: Arok the toxin
For Imperium: Korak the infection
Imperium: for a monster like this to fit their scientific side, i'd say it would need a unimaginative labratory name.
(some random number/letter that fits in)
Keeper: an existing entity of horror, marred to a point of utter hatred for machinery. The keeper side fight with it with sceptical trust, and so its name fits their fear.
Poison - for the Imperium
Venom - for the Keepers
Bog Raider for imperium and Swamp Raider for keeper side
Hmm Witherleaf for the Keepers since it seems to poison / wither the plant life around it
and Doku Monsuta for imperium since it is a poison monster going by the pic
Skelze for keepers and Ulthimeth for imp
=D I want new champ
Edit: Didn't check page 2 when I posted it, but now I see that "Ace of Spades" already mentioned the red names in a similar format; so I'll come up with 2 new ones in green

Imperium - The Nameless One
keepers - The Enigma
for the sheer reason if he is soo scary people tremble with fear and can never speak the creatures true name thus remaining a mystery ( almost like a concept of Lord Voldemort from harry potter, people cant speak his name outta fear )
I'm thinking Klaw-maw for Keepers just seems fitting and deadly. I can see the Keepers fearing it because of what it does up close.
Veno-blood for Imperium because I can see the Imperium fearing it because of what it does at range.
Plague - He brings death and dismemberment across the lands.
Famished - Sucking the life from his victims, one keeper at a time.

Trolling ~ My anti-drug.
for the keepers: the name is Scorpion cause he seems a mutant scorpion;

Techborg / Techsworm for imperium
Tyranid / Xel'Naga (heard of it in a game some were ...it ment somting like "Wanderers from Afar" because he sorta looks like a alien sworm bug from warhammer 40k)for keepers

Keepers: Venomoth because it looks like a venomous moth ?
Imperil: killerbeast because it is made for gank and kills
looks like a scorpion with a long tongue, so sorpiolingus
Imperium - Striker
Keeper - Stinger
Keepers - Sliver or Saliva - Sliver sounds cool and saliva because of how it's salivating poison
Imperium - Venom or Veinum(play on words vein-numb) - Seems to have a poisonous ability to numb it's opponents
Imperium : Dr.Cockroach

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. –Benjamin Franklin
It is sort of like a dragon of old, you know, from the days where dragons didn't need wings and actually spit and secreted venom (if you don't know what i am talking about you need to read the book version of beowulf, where he gets killed by the poison of the dragon)
Therefore, there are two dragon names that i would go with, (since he kinda looks like a dragon too, especially in the concept art that we see after the description.)
I would name it Vritra for the keepers, it is a Vedic (asian) dragon of draught that was killed by the hero Indra, who was only able to kill him while he had a weapon forged by the thunder-gods. (very interesting story *from the rig veda*)
and for the Imperium (if he looks anything like an imperium hero (gear like)) I would name it Herensuge (which was the dragon that St. Michael slew) He is the serpent who is known as the last of his kind, and therefore the closest to the steampunk type of feel that the Imperium have, and also is a WESTERN dragon, which all of the art styles seem to point towards.
So to recap Imperium Herensuge, for Keepers Vritra.

For Imperium Skorpinne because it has a tail of a scorpion, a head of a dragon so i just mixed those words together to put this created name.
For the Keepers i put Didrakorp cause the hero looks like a weird type of species that throws poison at you and has like some
kind of spikes on his back like an extinction dinosaur.
Ren for Imperium and Rin for Keepers. This is because the townsfolk trying to say run as they scream at the same time. Which cause them to not say it correctly and is different because they speak slightly different dialects.
Keepers: The Lurking Fear, if only because it seems almost like something out of the Cthulhu Mythos. Even though the actual tale involved apelike creatures, many on deviantart and other parts of the web like featurecreatureart, etc. have done their own visual representations based on the story, and not all of them can be said to be particularly apelike. Plus jungling; ganks, assassins and rushes suggests to the mind, stealth, and the element of surprise. Not only that, but hiding in the jungle to pop out when least expected, and using slime or fear to stun, and/or immobilize heroes seems fitting for such a creature.
Imperium: The Nameless Horror for similar reasons, and more likely to not be a copyrighted name. Just so terrifying that the Imperium can't think of a name for it. Plus it's reminiscent to me of the unnamed horror of the original Evil Dead film series. For the majority of the first two films it is better known as the infamous Raimi-Cam. Once Ash finally sees it for himself, his hair gains a permanent stripe of white-grey. The idea of HP Lovecraft had the main character of whichever story he wrote discovering something interesting, and then looking for clues. Once found, the main character goes insane from gaining such knowledge as mere mortals were never meant to find; and either lives, dies, or worse is inferred; by a cliffhanger or clever, and dark twist at the end. These stories rarely, if ever, involve a happy ending. In my mind, that is close to what this hero is telling me; if I were to play using this hero, that's what I'd be thinking, and that is what I personally think could make it a lot of fun. If this hero could be somehow worked into the lore as a kind of tribute to one of the great authors of horror, all the better.
Atah'Met - Imperium means 'you are dead'
Atah'Hai - keepers means you are alive in a certain foreign language
For all the people who enjoy saying it looks poisonous... there are neurotoxins that stop body function..so I hope he gets an ability that first you are slowed, then you get stunned while staying alive!
Ra'al - imperium
Eres - Keepers
Means poison in the same foreign language

After Dahaka and Da'ka, Ha'ka best names are:
You can make a third Class and Name her: Ha, if you want :P
nice and simple, suitable for venomous creature
“Why should I not hate mine enemies―if I "love" them does that not place me at their mercy?” The Satanic Bible
Keepers of Adornia
This creature appears to have a vicious lower appendage that surely impales prey before the fiend chews it to bits. "Shrike" and "fiscal (orig. fiskaal)" are the names of real world species of "butcher birds" that also impale their prey on sharp thorns before tearing them to pieces.
Shrike also sounds like "shriek" and fiscal sounds like "rascal", so both fit the personality of this troublesome jungle assassin who probably hits and runs.
They are cute but evil!
BONUS -- Jause's Great Compendium of Names (if multiple entries are allowed)
These generally all share a similar theme of the creature being a horrifying/powerful and unknown/unknowable force of nature. I tried to keep them simple, easily understood, and evocative like most Prime World names.
Imperium Keepers Why it's appropriate Devil / Zone Devil Spawn / Prime Spawn The Imperium sees it as a horror, the Keepers respect it as a force of nature. Fiend / Viscera Fiend Freak / Prime Freak It has a long tongue, looks hungry for meat, and is a 'freak of nature.' Bane / Bane of Men Thing / Great Thing The Imperium sees it as a horror, the Keepers respect it as a force of nature. Man-eater Wild / Pride of Wild The Imperium sees it as a horror, the Keepers respect it as a force of nature. Doomtail Drinker/ Primedrinker The Imperium sees it as a horror, the Keepers respect it as a force of nature. Skulk Lurk It sneaks and hides. Hydra Ya-te-veo Names of mythical man-eating plants and plantlike creatures. Cryptid
A cryptid is a modern mythic creature (big foot, etc.).
Apex Monarch Apex predators are the highest on the food chain and the king of the jungle. Catcher / Nightcatcher Startle/ Deathstartle It catches people at night and surprises its prey. Mutant/Mutation
It is a mutation caused by prime and it cannot see. Lick/Licker
It's got a long, powerful tongue. Necrotic
It's venom, perhaps, causes flesh to melt away. Snapper/Green Snapper
From "green death." Blackheart
It preys upon whatever it can catch. Tracer/Heartbeat Tracer
Stalker/Stalker of the Woods
It can hear you and it follows you. Abomination
Self-explanatory. Mandible Thorax Anatomical terms for the jaw and body. Alien Unknown It is strange. Diesect Priminal Die+insect = Diesect. Priminal = Prime + Criminal. Homivore Prime-borne Because it eats people and is born of prime. Fright Scare Self-explanatory. Masticator
It chews things up. Spittle
Perhaps its mouth oozes saliva. Anomaly Oddity It is strange. Skitterer Insatiable One It's quadrupedal and perhaps it eats a lot. Mawhorn Pincer It has many boney protrusions. Corrosive Caustic Perhaps its venom melts things. Render Ripper
It tears things apart. Sinew Muscle It looks strong. Butcher Gutter It tears things apart. Eviscerator Mauler It tears things apart.

"Apocalypion" from Apocalyptic Scorpion...
Both sides, because the sole purpose to spread fear and to fight...
Tyrant for Imperium
Devourer for Keep
This guy really seem to be an "Hive Tyrant" from Warhammer 40.000
My Perseverance is my Sword, my Honor is my Shield
my Brother are my Armor... Order, is my Life
Just some Mythology, and variations can be suggested to form off of.
Bakhtak - Iranian folklore, being a "Night Demon." "" A ghost or an (evil creature) that cause Sleep paralysis"" A vemonous paralysis, could be in turn on of the new "monsters abilities"
Basilisk - Italian folklore, being a "multi-limbed venomous creature."
If these two above we're said to be mixed in some short of mutation, You could have the "Bakhilisk" For either side, But seeming this Keeper would sound a bit fitting. For Imperium everyone can, and should suggest.
Otherwise, the rest of the information if for others to debate about. disclaimed at the bottom
Campe or Kampê - Greek Mythology, (though not entirely fitting, the name can be spliced with another to create a new creature) "Dragon-human-scorpion" Ideas welcomed.
Dilong - Chinese Mythology meaning " Earth dragon" (the modern Chinese term for the Mesozoic crocodilian) Geosaurus (from Greek "earth lizard")
Hypnalis - Medieval Bestiary "Snake that kills victims in their sleep"
Hydros - Medieval Bestiary "Snake that causes it's victims to swell up" I would be an interesting killing mechanic to be honest.
Ko-Gok - Abenaki Mythology "Hideous Monster" although there no explaintion or descriptive statements about this Mythological beast, being, Monster, The Name is out there.
Lindworm -Lindwurm, Linnormr, Linnorm, Lindorm, lindorm"Serpent" -"in order" Germanic Mythology, Old Norse mythology, Norwegian Mythology, "in British heraldry it is a technical term for a Bipedal dragon, often with a venomous bite, Jörmungandr, the most famous of said type Mythological creatures. ((More information from etymology) In modern Scandinavian languages, the cognate lindorm can refer to any 'serpent' or monstrous snake, but in Norwegian heraldry, it is also a technical term for a 'seaserpent' (sjøorm), although it may also stand for a 'lindworm' in British heraldry.
Generally, the word lindworm stood for the Latin word draco (whence Norse dreki), thus could refer to any draconic creature, from a real life constrictor snake to a legendary dragon. In European mythology and folklore, creatures identified as a 'lindworm' may be winged or wingless, plus quadrupedal, bipedal or limbless. However late persistent tradition designates the lindworm as having no limbs, or just front claws (so that it must slither) in contrast to wyverns that have only hind-quarters (and possible claws on the end of its wings) and in contrast to dragons which have four limbs and may either be winged or wingless.
Some say that the lindworm is another name for "Wyrm", a type of dragon that looks like a very large snake, consisting of no wings. This dragon exists in swamps and forests, according to the book, Dracopedia.
The lindworm is also said to guard burial mounds and ancestral graves, according to (The Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures))
Níðhöggr - Norse Mythology " Dragon that gnaws at the roots of the world tree, Yggdrasil" although this isn't compiling to the image, a name is a name. Furthermore ((Prose Edda)According to the Gylfaginning part of Snorri Sturluson's Prose Edda, Níðhöggr is a being which gnaws one of the three roots of Yggdrasill. It is sometimes believed that the roots are trapping the beast from the world. This root is placed over Niflheimr and Níðhöggr gnaws it from beneath. The same source also says that "[t]he squirrel called Ratatöskr runs up and down the length of the Ash, bearing envious words between the eagle and Nídhöggr [the snake]."
In the Skáldskaparmál section of the Prose Edda Snorri specifies Níðhöggr as a serpent in a list of names of such creatures:
These are names for serpents: dragon, Fafnir, Iormungand, adder, Nidhogg, snake, viper, Goin, Moin, Grafvitnir, Grabak, Ofnir, Svafnir, masked one.
Snorri's knowledge of Níðhöggr seems to come from two of the Eddic poems: Grímnismál and Völuspá.
Later in Skáldskaparmál, Snorri includes Níðhöggr in a list of various terms and names for swords)) Taken only because of citing creature such as "Snake and Viper"
Tavara - Trabzon? "Turkish" Mythology "Davara? " is a demon of the night or nightmare"
Tsuchigumo - Japanese Muthology "Shapeshifting, giant spider"
Zahhak - Persian Mythology/Iranian Mythology is an evil figure in Iranian mythology and it is different from Zahhāk , evident in ancient Iranian folklore as Aži Dahāka
((Etymology and derived words) Aži (nominative ažiš) is the Avestan word for "serpent" or "dragon." It is cognate to the Vedic Sanskrit word ahi, "snake," and without a sinister implication. Azi and Ahi are distantly related to Greek ophis, Latin anguis, Russian and Old Church Slavonic уж (grass-snake), all meaning "snake".)
This Is not all an idea, just some mythology to throw around some idea and for people to play with the names and ideas. I do not take credit for any of these names, nor the descriptive statement, This was all taken from Wikipedia.org from the Legendary Creatures list, in hope of a more common, thought of and perhaps known to some names that we all can remember for times to come when this newest "Monster" is release, So again, feel free to play with the names, and Make your own, and give the reasons to why, so we have some more interesting names and idea, because creativity sometimes need to have somewhere to start.
the only section I take credit for is the "Bakhilisk", The idea of the Basilisk and Bakhtak mutation/combination/spliced Monster/Demon, and the fact I took the time to gather all this information.
I think a name inspired from the cthulhu universe fits both into the keepers side and this scorpion/spider-like "hero". As didn't like copy&pasting i tried "brainstorming" an acceptable name from entities which would fit: the Great Race of Yith (therefore Yyth) and the spider-influenced old god Byatis (changed into Rygtis).
In here i'm lacking inspiration. I just think the Imperium hasn't had time finding scientific possibilities, as this hero has shown itself and quickly chose names which would describe the physiology/traits/appearance the best.
Virulent stinger: The imperium may have witnessed virulent behavior to unfortunate victims which were stung (or even sprayed?) by the poisonous tail. (acting like a scorpion, with deadlier results)
Keepers of Adornia: Acitrox (pronounced like Acid+trox, but no "d." [Assi-trox]). I pick this name for keepers because this hero looks like he's a poison/acid spewer and "trox" makes the name sound cool.
Dokht Imperium: EX1134 (the number can be anything really, but 1134 = hell on a calculator). I pick this because EX is short for experiment and 1134 is the test number for the creation of this beast. I'm thinking the Dokht were trying to create some type of Keeper hunter and there were 1133 failed experiments until this one.
Are we allowed to come up with several names? I have more ideas.
Keepers : would look on it as a demon of sorts
Aokigahara - a haunted forest
Iwia - Jungle Demon
Angazhan - Abyssal Demon
Imperium: Figured the imperium would look on it as a plague to be wiped out
Variola vera - Latin for Smallpox
Malaria - name says it all
Plague - cause i ran out of ideas
