They studied under the same teacher, not the same place. And IIRC, Puretide is not from Voir'la. I don't think their's any fluff yet indicating where shadowsun is from, but from her models colors I'd say she's most likely from T'au.

i too would put my money on T'au- and she trained directly under Puretide. And she has a sister that died on Medusa while on a rescue mission for Fireblade (got axed by a greater daemon- probably slannesh)

This is off-topic, but what does IIRC stand for? I tried searching for a thread that had the meaning, but nothing came up.

She is also good friends with Aun'va who is from T'au so, another reason she may be from T'au.

Thank you. A lot of posts make more sense now.
Oh, and my take on it is Shadowsun came around because when Farsight "betrayed" the Greater Good, the Ethereals needed a new hero to put in front of the Fire Warriors. She happened to have some great recent victories, so "Hey Shadowsun, step on down; you're the next contestant on The Price is Right!"

Interesting spin on it
I would wager that she is from T'au, unless there is another sept that was left out of the codex that also has white as their sept color. GW likes to do that (Ko'Vash's sept was Vash'ya in Fire Warrior).

I'm looking at the model and the sept markings seem to be yellow/orange. Wouldn't that make her from T'aun

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
Any similarities between your reality and mine are purely coincidental...

I like the idea that her grudge with Farsight is somewhat more personal than the codex makes apparent. Jilted fangirl, perhaps?

Seriously, though. Star of Damocles makes it clear that not did they train under the same master, but they were in training at roughly the same time. This is easier to understand if you just dismiss the idea that Farsight is unusually old, which I think is the best solution at this point to GW's timeline woes. In any event, Farsight's betrayal may have hit Shadowsun pretty hard if she saw him as a role model. Perhaps there was a falling out between Puretide and Farsight, as well. And Aun'va could have taken advantage of that anger and used it to direct Shadowsun, since he is obviously a Sith Lord( :shifty. And since Hoare hasn't told us what happened to the third student, we may eventually get the whole story out of his series.
