Name for Chaos
 
What is the Tau name for the ruinous powers of Chaos? I guess, foundational to this question, is another: what is the Tau understanding of Chaos? Do they just see Chaos as being an affliction of the humans - "mont'gue'la"? Do they perceive it as a taint?

In Firewarrior Kais referres to Chaos as Mont'au, or the terror of the Tau past before the Etherials came, this kind of cultural horror that Kais assosiates with Chaos. I would assume Tau would generally use that references as well.

I think I've also seen gue'mont used somewhere, but I'm not sure.

They call them Gue'vesa the same as any other human, they really don't think that chaos is any different.

They are never called Gue'vesa , that is reserved for humans that serve the Tau Empire . Tau may use Gue'la to refer to any human warrior and may add a higher rank when speaking about or to officers but thats it.

I would go with Mont'au; sounds appropriate. As far if we see Chaos differently than the rest of the species, I don't know.
