Here is Eigle's little piece of History, which may have some more added to it. I was shocked to find that the original post is limited to 60000 characters !!!! Karashi Lissera
During the early days of the Alo'rrayanoi
campaign, Tau'shan welcomed many newly formed Tau Ka'vaal from all over the empire on there journeys outbound into imperial space. Aswell as these intrepid voyagers that where to take the Tau'va
to those less fortunate and enlightend, Tau'shan also started to recieve refugees and displaced Tau units, one particularly large group where that of the Karashi Lissera. The exiled union
as they were known, hailed originally from the Tio've
from the V'issel
system. They had been at the brunt of a sustained assault upon the system by Imperial force's with Tio've being the battlefield for many hard fought battles. The Tio've force's under command of Shas O Shi'el Ores Montyr
fought long and hard, adapting their battle style to adjust to the ferocity of the Gue'la. Even though there wasn't any Astartes amongst the Imperials, they did have large formations of Stormtrooper regiment, that marauded along the Tau battle line.
Eventually the Imperial Navy held the high ground of space, and proceeded to bombard Tio've remorsesly, Shi'el
knew now that time was running out and she had to do something to save the civilian populace of Tio've
.Shas O Shi'el
ordered that all civilian centres to be evacuated and with what ships where available to ferry the civilians to the Gas mining stations in orbit of V'isel sha
. From there the remnants of the Tio've Kor'vettra would tow a number of interplanetary tanker craft through the warp utilizing the warships grav hooks.
As the evacuations took place, the Tio've forces where relentless in their defence of the retreat. Shas O Shi'el
was wounded a number of times during disruption operations against the imperials in the effort to slow their advance upon them. The Fire caste of Tio've fought continusley slowing the imperials, delaying the ineffable. Thousands died in the final weeks to add to the many hundreds of thousands that had died since the start of the assault. Most of the Tio've high command had been lost, only Shas O Shi'el
and the last Ethereal Aun Kovash Vre
were left out of the Tio've Shas Ar Tol. But for not for Shas O Shi'el
and her plan many more would've perished in the slaughter. No quarter was asked, and none was given, as these Gue'la revelled in the spilling of blood of the innocent, for honour and compassion was not a words that these gue'la were familiar with.
The Bombardments continued daily and relentlessly , and the Tau were all but surrounded. A number of cadres had returned to the debarcation point with only a handful of survivors as the Imperials were ambushing them before then chasing them down like rabid dogs , Shas O Shi'el
knew that they couldn't save anymore of the civilians still trying to make their way to the rendezvous point, Kovash Vre
placed a bloodied hand on her shoulder, "you have done all that you could, and you have saved many from these animals, it is time that we make our retreat in order to save those waiting for salvation" .Shas O Shi'el
knew that the Aun was right, but she felt shame for she thought that she had failed the millions that had lived in peace on Tio've only a few kai'rotaa ago. She ordered the withdrawal of the Shas and Kor but not before sending out stealth teams to sabotage the main power relay stations, as the last Manta lifted up off the surface of Tio've mass explosions could be seen raging across the surface of Tio've.
The devastation of the weeks of Bombardment coupled with the destruction of the power stations was too much for this once beautiful of planets, a chain reaction had begun and the planet began to tear itself apart. Tectonic plates shifted, and had began spliting through massive earthquakes racking the surface, slowly at first then it gathered at pace, Tio've started to break apart.
By the time that Shas O Shi'el
and the last of the Tau cadres arrived at V'isel sha
Tio've had been completely destroyed. The Tau were in numb silence, tears welled in the eyes of those that had survived, and as Shi'el
entered the command deck of the Shas'Kor Ra'za
one voice asked the question that everyone wanted to know the answer to, "Where do we go Shas O? " With tears stinging her eye's Shi'el
looked up defiantly, and said "Tau'shan... We go to Tau'shan. Looking over towards the communications officer, I want to make a ship wide address . Standing at the comm Shi'el
takes one last look at Tio've before begining to speak . Our Home is no more, we are exiled, but we shall be strong for those that are not here, and those that gave their lives for the Greater Good, to save us so that we can live on in peace and unity, to teach the bitter lesson's we have learned to others, so they can see the strength of our peoples sacrifice, lest not forget the terrible price we have all had to pay, Tio've is no more, we are now to be known as " Karashi Lissera... we are the exiled union.
