Default N'dras

Having decided my commander will come from this sept... a few questions have been ringing round my head.

Why did the Tau voluntarily evacuate this world?
Why are some Tau still there and regarded as untrustworthy?
Is it still considered a Sept world if large numbers of the populace have evacuated?

Any opinions?

I never find just one answer

all I come up with is, "something went down" and it wasnt good.

something either spooked the ethereals, or perhaps a big taboo was done >

perhaps the people of n`dras were not as "loyal" as others thought, perhaps they supported other "questionable" firecaste elements.

Maybe the place was blown to poopoo.

maybe they had a party and the ethereals werent invited? or were left outside and tau ate cake in front of them?

but oddly enough Tau apparently have characteristics similar to humans granted the environment allowed it.

There is notions of laziness, charisma, anger, and content, even those of betrayal amongst tau worlds, would it simply be crazy if n`dras citizens went against the "greater good?"

Off hand answers (i.e. too lazy to re-read my codex atm).

I don't know if it was voluntary, and it's a mystery for a reason.

I don't believe any Tau are still there. I think the codex was referring to the decedents of the original colonists who evacuated from N'dras.

Probably, it's not like they don't consider it part of the Tau Empire, it's just the useless part of the Tau Empire. (Unless they've got a secret base/research lab there or something .)
