Warriors, Poets, Workers, Emissaries and Leaders of the Tau Empire. Pilgrims of the Greater Good and defenders of their philosophy, the Tau wander through a small empire but wield the advantage in technology that the Adeptus Mechanicus wish they could examine and pick apart.
However, Your people are not alone in their struggle for the Greater good and their expansion into the Galaxy. No, Along side your superior tech to the Imperium of Man, You walk along the scorched earth and wide galaxy with a grand arrangement of species who have declared their loyalty to your own people. Your people strike with the Kroot, Niccaran, Vespid and Gue'vesa.
You may walk the path of the traitor as the Gue'vesa for you are human who have come to the side of the Tau Empire, the path of the Vespid or Kroot who owe their very lives to the Tau or the Niccaran who are the only psykers of the Tau empire.
But your lords, The Ethereal Caste, see that to survive and expand that they must negotiate long before they set to war. The Greater Good. Your Philosophy, Your way of life. You may see the God-emperor in your death as the Gue'vesa do or simply cease to be as the Tau do but your lords see that today a Emissary be escorted to convert a new planet to the Empire.
The Fire Caste has called for a bodyguard and your sergeant is gue'vesa. You will escort him down to the Governer's Palace.
Will He be happy to join or reluctant? Will he call for the Imperium to save him or will quieten down and declare his loyalty to the Tau?
Either way, The Water caste is sending you and your team down.
