Eldar (Warhammer 40,000) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (5787 words)
The history of the Eldar in Warhammer 40,000 also has similarities to that of Tolkien's elves, to the point that they are a "dwindling race" in the game universe, as the elves were in Middle-earth's Third Age.
The Eldar may also be seen to borrow from ninja to a lesser extent with their appearance, and use of shuriken.
Eldar technology is in all respects far in advance to that of humans.
Dark Eldar History (1137 words)
Eldar are able to affect the nether-realm much more than most other races, all Eldar are latent psychics and have the ability to become very powerful psykers with training.
The Eldar lived in relative peace – barbarian races such as the Orks were kept at easily manageable numbers and never had the strength to threaten the might of the Eldar empire.
Some say that the successive generations of Dark Eldar are somehow ‘cursed’ by the events of the Fall, others say that it is the wild, undisciplined lifestyle that echoes the pre-Fall days that makes their souls so attuned to Slaanesh’s thirst.
