Default Through the eyes of a Kroot... What do they think of us?

What do Kroot think of humans or Space Marines in general? Do they see them as honorable warriors (like the Tau) or just big moving hamburgers?

Well, the kroot in the Ciaphas Cain book respect him, Amberly, and their small squad (their names escape me; they were the ones who went underground in the first book).

Kroot seem to be pretty laid back about their opponents, almost like the Orks. They respect strength, but they don't have a complex martial culture that would distinguish one type of fighting from another in terms of "honor". That said, their idea of respecting someone would frequently be to eat them and take on their attributes. They probably get along with the Tau so well because the strength of the Tau is technological rather than biological.

@Backfire: Rather I'd say Tau are more like rice crackers to the Kroot, no nutritional value whatsoever.

That said, do the Kroot really take the Greater Good as seriously as the Tau do? I'm inclined to say no, seeing as how they hire themselves off as mercs behind their backs

Kroot probably see eye for an eye, and care not the rest...its business, nothing personal.

This would be better in the 40k universe board

Whoops, fair point - I just thought that things about the warhammer 40k world (but not about actual gaming) would go in that section but I suppose you can just be too picky, like me.

By the way, I like the idea that Kroot hire themselves out without the Tau knowing to other races to obtain different genetic material. If the Tau found out, do you reckon that they would engage the kroot in war or are they too valuable for their close combat skills.

I sorta doubt Tau actually are so ignorant about it. It's probably more like, 'Don't ask, don't tell' type of thing. I mean, I can just imagine a Water Caste envoy questioning some Kroot leader about their suspicious activities... ;D

Water Caste: "Hey, what are you doing with all those Warspheres which we observe leaving your system and travelling beyond the borders of the Empire?"

<long pause>

Master Shaper: "Nothing."

Water Caste: "Ah, ok....hey wait a minute...why did it take so long from you to answer!?"

<long pause>

Master Shaper: "No reason."

Water Caste: "Hmm, very well, I suppose it is allright then..."
