Default What's the link between eldar and tau?

In the tau codex there is a quote by eldrad ulthran who says he (or the eldar) feel a strong protectiveness towards the tau, i want to know what te link between them is and whether you think it could ever lead to the two races forming an alliance? Maybe the tau could be the new eldar, a growing empire that will some day become protectors of the universe?

There is no link. Tau are vermin to be eradicated as soon as they are no longer useful, or amusing.

Wargamer feels this way about pretty much everything, don't worry.* No real "link" Its just Ulthran getting senile.

What about the theory that the old ones created the tau, with the eldar so close to the old ones this must mean something for the future of both races

And you said you liked the Tau!

I think the Eldar find the Tau interesting because they are so naive and relatively untouched by the enemies the Eldar been fighting for eons.

there is no conection. the only thing that exits is that both races are a litle more sane then every one else in the universe so would be more likely to copoperate, but thats just my opinion.

I do. However, I am one of the few people on this forum who doesn't blindly follow Por'hui propaganda.

they are useful, and intrigue the eldar, possibly because they are not ignorant mon-keigh.

but, that said, they'd merely be a step up from mon-keigh, maybe gor-reigh-la ;D

the eldar see tau as being better than humans......and thats it. they would have no interest in an alliance, or friendship, and neither would the tau, considering the eldar stand for the antithesis of the tau'va.

The eldar may seen the tau in that light at the moment but when i posted this i was thinking more towards the future, when the tau empire has expanded. Although they may have many differences at the moment i just feel that if the tau begin to unite races in one peaceful empire the eldar may have a higher respect for them. Yeah i understand that an alliance will probably never happen because both races have different roles in the 40k universe but at some point in the future the eldar might not see the tau as that different
