I have decided to add some more fluff to my craftworld by adding yet another special character to my box of Eldar trickery. I absolutely love to create these stories, I could go on and write a book about the whole craftworld some day, I just know it! Anyhow, here is my Warlock Character!
Althulandshu the fullfilled, Warlock of Vaul’Ahrys
”I have wandered the most doomed and corrupt of worlds… I have pierced the veil beyond the twilight realms of shadow and flame… And I have finaly lay my hands on that which is most sacred…” -Final words of Althulandshu, warlock of Vaul’ahyrs.
It is no secret that the Eldar people of Vaul’Ahrys look back and view Althulandshu to be one of its mightiest warlocks that had ever walked amongst them. He was a truebourne just like his older brother, unwavering in his ability to face any challanges that was bestowed upon him. In his youth, an already accomplished warrior thanks to his brother who skilled him in the Eldar martial arts. He was also raised by his brother. At an even younger age, his parents had left him with his older brother. Having revealed a most important truth about themselves, which endagered the two eldar greatly, possibly endagering the entire craftworld itself. The two were once Harlequin, forever forefiet to dance the dance of death, unallowed to have emotions, to experience love, to bear children or to expose themselves with a forbidden ordinary life. This was impossible, yet, in its truest of forms, love presented itself in their walk of life, as it eventually does in all Eldar. It had conquered them. This was the case with his parents. With the truth revealed by accident, they had to act quickly. They made escape to the webway, but before they left, they faded the memories of the craftworlders, especially Eshulandhu´s and Althulandshu´s, so that they may never recognise them ever again. It was only by the stark will of Althulandshu´s mind that things began to reveal themselves as he started walking the path of the warlock. Being haunted by terrible dreams of dispair the masked faces appeared again and again. Eventually the old mind barrier was shattered by the warlocks piercing veil and he could see clearly the secret which had been kept for so long. He was now determined to find out more about his family. Keeping the secret from his brother, who now walked the military offices of the craftworld. In the latter years, he became an experienced psyker with the stamina unlike any other in his ways to decipher mysticalities of the forever glowing runes. Travelling across vast distances of space and wandering lengths and yet lengths within the white flickering domains of the webway, Althulandshu was learning and achieving many things in the name of the craftworld. He discovered many ancient artifacts, many new corridors in which to field the craftworlds armies, new worlds were the craftworld could colonise themselves. He was an asset to his people in every way and this was known but sadly blurred out by the all powerfull persona of his older brother. The seers were struggling to reach the ears and minds of the craftworlds people, and it had finaly surpassed their attemtps. It was now the final year of Althulandshu´s excistance, the powers of change was upon him and his people…

Shaoul’vrah and Khael’Chu the twins of war: Few are the individuals who claim to have knowlage about the so called ”twins of war”. Yet, to those who have heard the ancient tales, it is believed that the twins of war once belonged to two mighty eldar warrior brothers, twins, who fought in the ancient war against the Necrons. The first brother was said to have wrecked a whole legion of armored machines on the back of his flying steed, the seccond brother was said to have faced death himself in a duel and defeated him in a single blow. These ancient stories have been kept alive orally within certaint families for eons , told as either childhood sagas or mythical heirloom songs. However told, shrouded by the echoes of time, not fully understood and treated with much skepticism.
