From Xenology, but eh.

>AUN: Selflessness, you would call it. The Greater Good. The knowledge that by staring inwards one finds only solitude, but by staring outwards, by devoting oneself to the race and its quest for perfection, there is harmony and peace.
>RALEI: An ongoing quest? So you admit your empire is not yet perfect?
>AUN: Of course not. What is? The Tau’va is the path, gue’la, not the destination.

and he should stay unique in that respect

battlesuits can manage in close combat, but that should never be their priority

He's also a fucking boss

Thinking of picking up an Ion-head. Hated the cannon before, but it's grown on me since the first tau book. That, and two burst cannons + Ion cannon + seekers is a lot of dakka

http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Damocles_Crusade

>Members of the Tau Water Caste had established trade agreements with Imperial Worlds on the frontier, near the Damocles Gulf, and exchanges of goods and technology were common. Alarmed by the threat of alien contamination, the Administratum readied a suitable response and almost a century later, the Damocles Crusade smashed into Tau space, destroying several outlying settlements and pushing deep into the Tau Empire.

>When the Imperial fleet reached the sept of Dal'yth, however, the crusade ground to a bloody stalemate as the formidable numbers and high technology of the Tau and their Kroot allies thwarted every attempt to capture the system. Many months of terrible fighting ensued with nothing gained on either side. By 742.M41 Imperial Commanders eventually agreed to requests from the Water Caste for peace talks.

>The negotiations were successful and the Imperial fleet withdrew from Tau space, primarily due to the impending approach of Hive Fleet Behemoth. Or, depending on the source, the crusade was stopped in 988.M41 due to the emergent threat of Hive Fleet Kraken

I'm not sure if it's been explained further (I remember there being more in my old Tau book.). Essentially, the Damocles gulf was being assimilated by the Tau, and the Imperium decided to stamp them out

The crusade starts with them reaffirming the loyalty of the Imperial sectors before pushing into Tau space. They decimated a few planets before hitting a major Sept world, and were called off to fight hivefleet Behemoth

You can bet that there were Gue'vesa auxiliaries, as well as political dissidents.. but when faced with a crusade fleet, they'd be brought into line or eliminated quickly

After the crusade? The third sphere expansion started, with the Tau absorbing most of their lost territory, including human worlds.

he's not against using his forces as mercenaries though (true neutral mercenaries at that, even working with Chaos at times IIRC)

most likely for supplies

anyways, at the topic on hand; There are Ethereals who place themselves "above" other tau as leaders, and there are those like Aun'shi who are more "down to earth", inspiring the greater good through personal example.

I'd imagine that the latter is quite a bit more rare

Shadowsun is actually possibly a Chaos tau.

He weilds a daemon weapon and doesn't listen to what the Aun have to say about the greater good.
