LW after enemy evade

Windchaser followed by Nirvana - evade is sort of moving like the wind, as it were and Nirvana means end of the storm, or the following calm.

LW after enemy parry

Riposte followed by Overwhelm

PS, much love for bringing these type of styles back.

Some official sword terms for you. Could be good. Second Intention probably my favourite with a followup of something in that theme

Throwing-the-point - A German technique of turning a false cutting blow into a sudden straight thrust

Second Intention - For tactical fencers, the second intention is a cunning way to open up an opponent’s defenses. It is similar to the feint, but you design your entire move with a second strike firmly in mind.

Two Heavens - This style's name translates to "Two Heavens, One School" and refers to a trademark stance of both swords held above the head to attack. The swords work in a sequential rhythm; as one sword defends, the other attacks in the next step.

Some random ideas:

Deflecting Blow - After Parry
Oppress - Parry followup

Shadow Catcher - After Evade
Shadow to Bone - Evade Followup

Unstoppable Force - After Block
Capitulation - Block followup
