I've been wondering for awhile, but why is Riz Hawkwood the main page name for this character? I don't think there's any justification for choosing Riz over Liz. As far as I know, it's either stated or implied to be a shortening of Elizabeth, and no-one in Europe would ever shorten Elizabeth to Riz, as they clearly distinguish a separate L and R. Furthermore, I don't know of any Italian name matching Riz. See on BehindTheName for example: Liz and Riz. Also relevant is Rizu, which appears to support Liz as the proper form. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 19:55, 19 August 2023 (UTC)

The manga calls her Riz, so it seems official enough to say thats her name. PureChaos (talk) 20:39, 19 August 2023 (UTC)
That doesn't seem official enough to me, honestly. Even an official translation can make mistakes. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 21:06, 19 August 2023 (UTC)
