Default Fluff Frame(?) / my own fluff

A Battleforce is on it's way at last :P and I've been trying to come up with fluff for my army. I thought it might be a good idea if we had a fluff frame for all tau armies as well; to help anyone else. So here's my try, feel free to suggest any other bits of fluff that might suit my tau or other questions to be added to the fluff frame.

N.O.C.C. (Name Of Cadre Commander): Shas'O'D'yanoi'Eoro'Re'Kai s (Commander (who) guide(s) (with) strength (and) skill, :P well it sounds better in tau...)

-R.B.T. (Reasons Behind This (if any)): He leads his cadre with great skill and strength.

C.C.S. (Current Colour Scheme): Green armour.

-R.B.T. (Reasons Behind This (if any)):
I've seen a scheme that I like the look of; and that scheme uses green for armour.

S.O.F. (Sept Originating From):
D'yanoi.

-R.B.T. (Reasons Behind This (if any)):
In my lists I find I don't have rail rifles, cyclic ion blasters and other 'new' technology. Since the inhabitants of D'yanoi are thought to be slightly old fashioned, I thought that this could relate to my army choices (or lack of).

R.O.T.P.E. (Role In Third Phase Expansion): The cadre are currently given the task of ambushing enemy units as they leave jungles/forests, usually after another cadre or a group of Kroot has flushed/lured them out.

-R.B.T. (Reasons Behind This (if any)):
They'll (hopefully) have green armour.

M.C.A. (Most Common Auxiliaries): Kroot.

-R.B.T. (Reasons Behind This (if any)):
The Kroot often act as the lure, are part of the ambush or are originally part of the force that will flush the enemy out and will then decide to join the ambush. They basically fit the bill for the role of the cadre.

That's all I can think of at the moment so any suggestions are much appreciated

EDIT - Found a name for the Shas'O.
EDIT - Forget to say what his name means ;D :P.
EDIT - Forgot to include his sept world into his name :P, oh and actually, can someone please clarify i've made the name correctly?
EDIT - Realised I got the commander's name wrong :P.
EDIT - Commander's name changed.
EDIT - A few things corrected.
EDIT - See below.
[hr]

The important people of the cadre:

Shas'O'D'yanoi'Eoro're'kai s - Commander (who) guide(s) (with) strength (and) skill

Shas'el'D'yanoi'Vah'cha'ne m - Noble (who's) goals (are severely) piercing (to enemy defences/tactics/etc.)

Shas'vre'D'yanoi'Savon'yen - Hero (of) keen foresight.

Shas'vre'D'yanoi'Lynu'kar' tyr - Hero (of) persistent justice.

Shas'vre'D'yanoi'Soo'vah'c ha - Hero (of) creative goals.

Shas'ui'D'yanoi'Vior'ka - Veteran (of) aggressive blows.

Shas'ui'D'yanoi'Soo're - Veteran (of) graceful strength.

Shas'ui'D'yanoi'Korst'la - Veteran bringer death. (Inspired by Steck_638).

Shas'ui'D'yanoi' Veteran

Shas'ui'D'yanoi' Veteran

Shas'ui'D'yanoi' Veteran

[hr]
Any ideas for names are much appreciated... as are any other replies :P
[hr]
EDIT - 'Veteran bringer of death' added (inspired by steck_638).

thanks, nice name by the way, I think Korst'la would be pretty cool for one of the shas'ui... i'll add it up now, thanks again.

EDIT - Incase anyone wanted to know; the battleforce arrived today, which was pretty impressive 'cause i only ordered it 2 days ago and it was only posted yesterday .

i spent ages on my cadre fluff. i really wanted it to fit in with what was going on and how it sat with the 40k universe etc. so basically if anybody read it they couldn't say that my cadre is wrong or something. I basically set it out like this,

http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=52209.0

i thought i did a pretty good job of it, but i like the idea of explaining why you chose certain things. i might add that into my thread actually.

Wow, the amount of information/fluff you've come up with is amazing!
Did you research a load of stuff or are you just familiar with dates and tau language?
I'd like to be able to include that much information, but i'm not that good with 40k dates, battles and tau language. :P

alot of the work i did, i got help from calmsword, he's around quite alot and i'm sure he'd be more than happy to help you with the language etc. but if you use the search engine on the forums you can easily find lexicons for the Tau language as well as tau years in comparison to human years etc.

Try downloading the "Project Tau" Articles, they really help sort out general things.
