Default Theory on what happened to Cpt Farsight

Cpt Farsight, what happened to this once great general of the Tau. Well I think he has been tainted by chaos or being posseed by an evil spirit in the Dawn Blade, cause according to what I gathered on Farsight, on his last mission to Arthas Moloch an ethereal died and you have to go against the Greater Good to do that. It might be an evil spirit because he went after orks after what happened and the spirit is driving him crazy and making him shed as much blood as possible for the chaos.
So what do you think of my theory.

I think he got an Ork blood injection. And so now hes fighting anyone who oppose him, be they Orks, demons or even Etereals

there is no supporting fluff for any of the arguments AFAIK, so any theorum is as legitimate as the next, however the necron one seems to be the best (necrons are behind everything, didnt you know :P)

I never said anything about Necrons but I seriously believe the chaos are behind this and it might become the Horus Heresy of the Tau, cause Farsight is a renegade.

I ddint say you did, but as Tau have no psychic prescence in the warp I doubt its chaos.


I said that I viewed the "Necrons are behind it and the dawn blade is a cron artifact" as most likely given the fact that crons are behind everything nowadays

The world he found it on, an artefact world, would seem to support the cron theory. That and the fact that the tau were confused as to who or what they were fighting. If it was chaos the physical signs of possesion would turn farsight into something FAR nastier to look upon.

exactly, search the Tau and Cron boards, or if worst comes to worst a Cron player can probably give you a diatribe :P.

Maby Farsight, though, might of discovered phychic powers for the first time cause they mentioned it in a White Dwarf magazine once. My friend though thinks what happened is that Farsight discovered on the Dawn Blade the truth about the ethereals and that their secretly being run by the eldar and thats why he left. I think thats stupid because the Farseer known as Eldrad Ultuan and I quote from the Codex: Tau, " I have followed the myriad potential futures of the Tau with great interest. Though barley stripplings compared to us I feel a srtange protectivness towards them". Gee if the eldar were already in control of the Tau why would he say this , especially sence he is supposed to be the greatest Farseer of the eldar? Anyways how would a necron do that?

I really don't think that the eldar would be in control of the tau; they just hold a general disdain for everybody and wouldn't stoop so low as to ever use a "lower" race directly for their benefit. The eldar would rather just nudge them to battle with their enemies, or assist one of the lower races in battle against chaos.
The necrons are THE most techologically advanced race, ever, and they would be more than capable of manipulating a tau. Especially with the C'tan on their side...

yes, the eldar are ruled out as manipulators by many factors, cheifly that eldrad quote.

theyre necrons, theyre behind everything ;D, and the necrons cultivated the Callidus as psychic nulls so some cronish thing could happen there .

go to the cronboards for a more in depth explanation, I dont really give a shaz about farsight myself so my fluff knowledge is very limited.

the Eldar hate the imperium as they are lesser beings that have lost their ways and such, but the Tau are growing, and as such the Eldar may feel that as they enter their twilight their successors are coming of age and such tomfoolery.
