Broken down, the entwined words: Trauma (-in a nutshell, something that has become unforgetable) and Maligno (-Filipino for haunting mythical nightstalkers) were brought together to capture a richer term for recall or memory. Traumaligno conotes an entity that caused condensed joy or sorrow that it becomes embedded in memory to the extent that it haunts its perceiver.
His fatal loss of Laura led to utter traumaligno.
