Is it something to do with the original console game? Why call it Omen?

In the videogame, a Crimson Omen was spray painted onto a nearby wall whenever a Gear fell in battle. As for why they call it Omen, I guess it sounds cool.

"The Crimson Omen represents the player's health bar; when the player begins to take damage, the outer cog of the Crimson Omen starts to appear in the center of the screen; the more damage the player takes, the more visible and defined the cog becomes. When the cog becomes full, the player is down but not out - a small amount of subsequent damage will kill the player and the full Crimson Omen, including the skull in the middle of the cog, will be displayed on the screen"
