AFAIK, so far not a single Ethereal has been killed by a Tau; not even Farsight raised directly a weapon against an Ethereal....

If Tau don't even kill themselves, could a Tau EVEN think to HARM a Ethereal? I don't think so. :P

Well there is no translation for 'killer' as killer refers to a description, or adjective. The Tau have a verb 'to kill' or 'to strike', but not an adjective for 'a person who kills'.

The part meaning you might be referring to is |'ka|.

However Tau do no kill Aun, futhermore a student would never even gain that name because he isn't worthy of that name. Indeed Farsight doesn't have any Aun with him, so how could have have a student kill some to gain that title?

It really isn't the best name with respect to fluff,

well ok ill need to plan it ut a bit but, my idea is:
he was a student of farsight who then abandoned the teachings for his own cause, and left to another world here he found a tau expeditionary force and in revenge and anger slautered them and all in the force, this is where he killed the first aun, after this he was forgotten and is now his own force in his own right, with one goal, to claim respect for Farsight, however he has insergants within the tau whom buy him his supplies and deliver them to his moon world, just out of the farsight enclaves, and now he is raising a force to destroy all whom oppose him.

to represent his, hatred for other races he will never join another force and will always fight on his own, unless farsight himself is there, then he shall bow down to him.

its still a wip but i have the idea.

Unsourced conjecture.

There isn't enough evidence for or against to make this claim.

Regarding the story itself, it's interesting in its originality, if not highly, highly unlikely from a canonical standpoint.

Best of luck to you.

Why not use the name as it refers to "Ethereal".

Ethereal killer as in the adjective would seem quite fitting for a "ghost" or stealthsuit or someone that figths cautiously.

So is he is a student or a descendant?
Because I can't see Farsight having children nor can I see him giving a lecture in front of a class.
And why he fights alone is that you have this one model on the field, and if you're part of the Farsight group that means you can't have Kroot and stuff so you get all the negatives but no positives (having Farsight in the battle).

EDIT BY RZ: Fixed atrocious grammar and spelling.

im still working on him at the mnute but i see your point, maybe he could have been a bodyguard of farsight who grew too attached and felt that he needed to give more of his thoughts to farsight as he never listened.

as for the negatives, i never use kroot or vespid any way, and like i said earlier, he buys all of his equipment from people who have infiltrated the tau forces and markets, so he doesnt have the limits.

plus he does have his own army who follow him into battle, they are well equiped few in number but have an undying aligence to him.
