For instance, the Jesuit order is formally "Society of Jesus", whilst "the Society of Jesus" is usually used in a sentence, where "the" is added.

I want to create a fantasy character called Duke Anonius, whose title I intend to be "Twilight Breaker". Should I add "the" to make the title

  • "Duke Anonius, the Twilight Breaker", or
  • "Duke Anonius, Twilight Breaker"?

(By the way, it's for a board game that I'm making in my spare time)

    It's purely a decision about style here. Rules concerning titles are often quite arbitrary (though if a certain variant has been established in law, or is used 99% of the time, it would be unwise not to use this). Which do you like the sound of better? It's your creation (I assume). – Edwin Ashworth Aug 8 '17 at 15:37
