The Eldar are a race of elf-like humanoids. They are one of the most ancient and advanced races in the universe's history, though younger than the Necrons, C'tan and the Old Ones. Their armies usually have the advantages of speed and technology.
One-time masters of the Galaxy, the Eldar are now few in number and slowly dying out. Those few, however, are among the most dangerous enemies of Man. Following specialized paths of rigorous training throughout their long lives, the surviving Eldar are masters of terrible psychic powers, deadly warrior skills, and incredibly sophisticated technology. Skilled in foretelling the future and manipulating lesser races, the Eldar would gladly sacrifice billions of humans to save a handful of their own.
