Default Who are the Reek?

As the title says, who are they? I remember seeing them in the Tau codex entry for Aun'Va, and they were described as being "hateful".

Hopefully this wasn't posted before. I didn't find them on the minor races sticky.

I don't think anyone knows. For all we know, they could be:
  • An intelligent alien race that refused to make peace with the Tau.
  • A non-intelligent alien race that posed a threat to Tau colonies.
  • A dissident movement, either among the Tau or another race of the Empire.
  • A faction of a race that was already at war with the Tau. (A particularly smelly group of Orks, perhaps.)
  • Some sort of celestial or warp-related phenomenon.

I'm sure that there are more possibilities that I haven't thought of.

They are an intelligent rae that fought the Tau and that is about all I know sorry.

We don't really know any more than the name. They could be just some kind of vermin, or they could be an advanced civilization. No way to know at this point.

Oh, okay. Thanks for the responses, guys.

Seems to be another "helpful" trait of Games Workshop. Plot holes.
