Tayghen (original version: Shiltis (シルティス,Shirutisu)) is an Aquos/Ventus hybrid Bakugan. She looks like a little bit more Aquos than Ventus.
Tayghen was created by negative energy in the merged worlds of Aquos and Ventus. The upper half of her body is that of a human girl wearing a dress with very long sleeves and her lower half is that of a giant sea monster. She often overestimates herself.
Tayghen appears when the brawlers first enter Vestroia originally only appearing as a girl, but then she reveals her lower half. She and her partner Hairadee face the brawlers until Shun and Marucho step up to fight them. Marucho soundly defeats her in an underwater battle and hurls her onto the shore. However this proves disastrous as her Ventus abilities made her far from helpless out of water. Eventually, Shun and Marucho defeat her and Hairadee by teaming up and sending them flying.
Tayghen returns attacking the human world with Naga's forces until Marucho fights her. Marucho has trouble overcoming Tayghen's double attribute ability until the JJ Dolls appear. The battle rages on with no one gaining an advantage until Marucho pulls the Aquos quadruple combo. Tayghen is completely overwhelmed by the incredible power of it and is thought that Tayghen was killed with this action, but she could have just got sent back to Vestroia.
Complementing her brother Hairadee, Tayghen prefers swimming to flying and uses her Aquos abilities more often than her Ventus ones. Her monstrous lower body might also be a metaphor for her personality, because although her human form looks gentle and innocent, she is quite vicious with a very irritable personality that is so poorly tempered that she will lash out at pretty much anything.
