Ahriman, as depicted by Rudolf Steiner. This pattern was repeated when Jain Zar visited the Craftworld, advising it against attacking a nascent Ork Waaagh, which the Crafworld's most senior Farseer agreed with. This occurred twice in the days before the Great Crusade, first when Eldrad and an older female Farseer journeyed with Asurmen to try to find a legendary Exodite Oracle. Out of all the factions (despite their many splinter groups not always seeing eye too eye) in 40k they seem to be the only ones who actually know what the bloody hell they're doing, and actually have a plan for the Endgame unlike the Imperium which is just running around and putting out the fires that have been raging since Horus fucked it all up and the Tau who are sitting in a circle holding hands and singing John Lennon's Imagine. The Imperium was never going to listen to the warnings of xeno scum, so the only way to get their attention was to show them. He gave Jain Zar an ultimatum, she could continue on her chosen path and see him dead, or she could choose to trust in the path he would forge for the Eldar.

Though they long diverged from friendship, they are not yet opposed.". He also turns out to be a bit of a hoarder, with whole towers stuffed with all manner of strange knick-knacks and other totally pointless items gifted to him over his long life, that he was apparently too polite to refuse but too lazy to dispose of (what a dick). The scourge only functions for Ahriman. Freemason and Illuminati member Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) wrote about Ahriman in great length in his final years, portraying him as a future counterbalance to Christ. Eldrad is tied for 4th on the list, alongside 40k-era Ahriman.

None deserve this as much as Eldrad… Time and time again, Eldrad has averted disaster for not only his former craftworld What form or how this friendship came about is unknown, but it is clear that by the time of the Heresy something *cough*. Eldrad believed that such a sacrifice was justified since the Eldar were a nearly extinct race and every Eldar life was more precious than the teeming masses of trillions of humans who still inhabited the galaxy. minipainting my take on using duncan s scheme armour and robes finished Get Over It It goes without saying that the more powerful the explosion, the more damage it will do. The most powerfull Farseer ever.

Discovering that the presence of the Phoenix Lord was what was reshaping the strands of fate to bring about Ulthwe's destruction, Eldrad moved to sacrifice himself to prevent it. Which he did to help them against Tzeentch's minions anyway! … But why? Most concerningly, he seems to believe that something worse than Chaos, something older, is on it's way... Could Eldrad possibly become the Phoenix Lord of the Witch Path?

Where did Eldradâs reputation for being such a dick come from? First he attempted to warn Fulgrim of Horus' corruption but failed, costing the life of one of Ulthwe's greatest Wraithlords and his friend, and also seeing the Avatar of Khaine slain, yet again, on his watch when Fulgrim throttled it (one assumes that Ulthwe's Seer Council has become a bit suspect about letting Eldrad use the Avatar since he seems to always come back with it broken). Malcador would probably be a level 5 as well, just not with the insane toughness that a primarch brings to the table. Whereas Ahriman is all about the volume when it comes to mind bullets, Eldrad is all about stability and reliability. He has had more luck when working with Space Marines, such as when he interfered to save Blood Angels Chief Librarian Mephiston.

Shas'la should always call for their nearest Shas'o if approached by a strange dick. Ahriman is the main antagonist in Aveyond: Rhen's Quest, and in the prequel to the Aveyond Series, Ahriman's Prophecy.

Deredeo Space Wolves Warhammer 40K Battle Report - … Showcasing his extreme level of dickishness Eldrad stole Crystal Seers (remains of past Seers, which obviously contain a lot of psychic fuel to awaken a god) from every single Craftworld and endangered the entire Eldar species in an abortive attempt to awaken Ynnead which failed when Deathwatch Captain Artemis intervened and defeated him and his Harlequin associates. He regarded himself as the "creator of Kastria", such was his contribution to life on the planet. 4: I give this one to the seer council. ... You forgot Ahriman . His devotion to this new great alliance of Elves and Men--I mean Eldar and Imperium has seen him going so far as to oppose the White Seers, the leaders of the Black Library itself, in favour of doing what was requested by Roboute, doing so without any of the usual Eldar trickery (by the gods, the sheer amount of dickishness that he must be holding back is mind-boggling- one can only assume that his exile taught him a painful lesson in humility) and openly admitting to the Primarch that the Imperium and the Eldar need each other to survive. For 10,000 years humanity has been feeding the Throne and the Emperor. The Eldar as a whole have many ambitious plans in the works for dealing with Chaos, each as desperate and dangerous as the last, but what is Eldrad's grand plan, and why is he so interested in keeping humanity alive? What at first glance looked like an utter failure not only saved countless Eldar and non-Eldar lives but also reserved him a seat at the big table for the Rhana Dandra.

Eldrad Ulthran was once chief amongst the Farseers of Ulthwé. Even Big.E cannot discern the future with perfect clarity despite being vastly more powerful and experienced than Eldrad (or any other psyker). Despite all this the attack was a total failure, with the High Farseer dying, the Avatar of Khaine being destroyed (in one of its earliest defeats) and Eldrad himself almost being killed. Ahriman's had whuppings from Eldar psykers before, and Eldrad is supposed to be the strongest of them. Of course, seeing as Eldrad is still on his first life there is no telling if this is true or not, but given that his previously retconned death had him splitting his soul into multiple soul stones (in a similar way to a horcrux) and that several were still active, even after his supposed "death" may indicate that GW may have planned on resurrecting him eventually if they had chosen to continue that storyline. Which he did to help them against Tzeentch's minions anyway! The gum pain will be considered a normal part of everyday life, and they will regularly take painkillers. Ahriman is talented, but he's not quite in that league imo. If the Throne fails or the Emperor slain, then the device will feed upon the power stored within the Golden Throne, and Terra will burn.

Eldrad attempted to reason with the Marines, explaining that what he was doing would strike a devastating blow against the true enemy. The Marines, of course, refused to listen and promptly fucked the whole thing up (marking one of many times he himself was out-dicked by Space Marines) whilst claiming that they would rather see the universe burn than trust Xeno scum. It could be that he ultimately wants Eldar and humanity to join hands and sing kumbaya, as we skip merrily into the sunset, but what's the fun in that. After stealing the crystallized bodies of Farseers from every Craftworld, he attempted to prematurely summon Ynnead, the yet-to-be-born Eldar god of Death who would save them from Slaanesh before every single Eldar dies, which was when it was supposed to be born. **FAQ IS OUT** - Fire Frenzy is now corrected.

Said summoning ritual required the bodies of every Crystal Seer, and when the Ulthwe's Seer Council learned of it along with how he crystallized a couple more seers bringing the Ynnari to Ulthwe, only the intervention of the Harlequins saved him from being executed on the spot. Eldrad, however, wanted to attack and destroy said Waaagh (Mainly because Jain Zar's plan was to make sure this Ork Waaagh ended up destroying Ulthwe, so as to prevent an even bigger disaster later on; Eldrad disagreed), convincing the Craftworld to follow him and rousing the Avatar of Khaine. There is only one mortal being in 40k who is a bigger dick than Eldrad, https://1d4chan.org/index.php?title=Eldrad&oldid=718923, There was also a subtle hint in "The Throne World" that claimed that at some time in the past both Eldrad and the Emperor had been "friends".
