while i have not yet finished it which my add to my confusion, i am reading warrior coven. and the dark eldar seem different than their descriptions elsewhere. i knew that they were violent and liked to tourcher other things. but i thought they did what they did to try and make the chaos gods overlook them. but it seems more like they are working for the chaos gods. especially slaanesh. they use demons of the warp, and even make barters with the gods. so could someone shed some light on this please?

The dark eldar do what they do to appease slaanesh because to all eldar slaanesh is "she who thirsts" and slaanesh devours eldar immortal souls when they die. The dark eldar I think try to find a loop hole around this by acting sadistic and doing dark eldar stuff cause if you think about it what dark eldar do and what slaanesh does arn't that far apart. Im just telling you what I heard it could be that we are both wrong.

the dark eldar were founded after the fall by the father of kanandras (the pheonix lord of the striking scorpions) , as he was traveling the webway he was confronted by the god of slannesh. he made a deal with her and said that if she spared the souls of the fallen eldar he would bring pain,disorder and misery to the world. this did not go down well with most other eldar and he along with his followers were made outcasts. he then founded the dark eldar and disapeared shortly after.

Wait, when ALL eldar die, Slaanesh devours their souls? I didn't think it was every single one of the eldar, I thought it just some of them like the Harlequin Solitare.

well im under the impression that when an eldar dies in there armour there soul is trapped by the stones so they wont be lost to the maphro lord, but thinking a bit more it might only be for aspects, i cant remember it's been a while.

every eldars soul is trapped in a soul stone and especialy good warriors are used to power wraithlords and wraithguard

this is a tactic used by the Iyanndl craftworld eldar because few living members of their craftworld remain. (sorry about getting Iyanndls spelling wrong)
