I just noticed that, Shadowsun apparently has no homeworld...a greatly respected warrior, but apparently no one can remember where she's from, even though it's supposed to be in every Tau's name. :-\

I always assumed she was from T'au though, because of the white armor and yellow sept markings. It's the reverse of the codex T'au scheme. In DoW the Tau commander adopts the sept color as his main color, too.

I would imagine it's T'au. She was chosen to lead the entire Empire, right? And to represent the Tau'va itself- for political reasons she probably is from T'au.

But it is weird they never put that down in her name- i feel like it was an oversight.

Indeed, but then you'd think there'd be such a thing as politeness. Y'know, not blowing up another sept's statue to make a statement.

(But then again, dislike it as I might, this edition has emphasised the primacy of T'au in all things Tau. I suppose she probably is T'au then. Boo! :-\ )

So if Farsight is Vior'la, Shadowsun is T'au, then what about Puretide and Icewind. Of course, I don't think there's any indication for those two (though Puretide is located upon Dal'yth at the time...), but others might have a more keen insight than I!

A different question!

Where's O'Remyr from?

It is stated in the codex that Puretide is from the Dal'yth Sept.

Shas'O R'myr is from the T'au Sept.

I, too, always assumed Shaserra was from the T'au Sept as well.

Regarding Puretide's Tau name, no, it isn't given in Star of Damocles (we can only hope), but unofficial names have been created by both myself and Calmsword. ;D

I like the backstory of my Commander: he was a lazy pupil, but his teacher was killed by Ork Raiders, so he buckled down and studied.

I thought Tau Commanders only pupiled people from thier own sept, or did I imagine that?

They need Kais from the Firewarrior game/book...unless he dies horribly.

TimJim's right, Kais is insane and crippled now.

And no, Tau don't just mentor Tau from their own Sept.

Puretide is from Dal'yth and mentored Farsight from Vior'la, who mentored Brightsword from Tash'var.

You're joking, right? If anything the game is worse: you look down and you realize YOU HAVE NO LEGS.

Anyway, I don't think Kais needs to come back...
