Lezgurji (ლეზგურჲი)

The Lezgurji alphabet was invented by Ethan Hunt during his studies of the Georgian language. He noticed how many languages of the Caucasus such as Chechen, Abkhaz, Ossetian, and Lak were formerly written in the Mkhedruli script, and Ethan thought the script was very fitting for those languages, rather the Cyrillic. The name of the alphabet is a portmanteau of the Lezgian words, "Лезги (Lezgi)" and "Гуржи (Gurji)", which mean "Lezgian" and "Georgian" respectively.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
(John 1:1-5 [NIV])
