To be cognizant

Next:
This one is rather difficult:
I am looking for the meaning of the noun that the derivation pattern ātitūrC₁V₁C₂C₁V₁C₂V₂C₃ū turns verbs into.
It is composed of two morphemes:
ātitūrā is a noun of undecided meaning, it is the modified noun.
C₁V₁C₂C₁V₁C₂V₂C₃ā is a noun derivation stem that indicates "that which causes [something else] to VERB", it is the modifying noun.
But ātitūrā is grammiticalized onto C₁V₁C₂C₁V₁C₂V₂C₃ā to become one derivation morpheme.

peripheral beneficiary—e.g., ātitūrā + 'causes-s.o.-to-fight' > 'guy pulling the strings, man behind the man'; ātitūrā + 'causes-s.o.-to-fail' > 'person of bad character who has an angle predicated on someone's failure'

Do you think it'd be okay to post characters for Vingdagese in this thread, some of which don't have solid pronunciations associated with them?
