Written records, monuments and visual records were almost completely destroyed except for a few instances where they were taken aboard voidcraft fleeing from the doomed worlds.
Though highly advanced and feared across the galaxy, the Eldar are still a dying people -- a shadow of their former glory -- and their race teeters on the brink of final annihilation.
"For the ancient Aeldari, life was a cycle of birth, the fulfilment of desire, and a comfortable death, safe in the knowledge the soul would live again.
The original Eldar homeworld was destroyed during the catastrophic collapse of the Eldar civilisation known as the Fall of the Eldar.
The remnants of Eldar culture that survived the cataclysm preserved much of their species' history in the form of traditional stories, songs and dance.
There is no understanding them for there is nothing to understand -- they are a random force in the universe." The Eldar, or Aeldari as they were known in the Eldar Lexicon before the fall of their lost realm, are an ancient humanoid alien race whose vast empire once extended the width and breadth of the known galaxy.
The Aeldari Empire was without equal, and they counted themselves masters of the stars.The most obvious difference between humans and Eldar can only be seen when they move, for the movements of an Eldar radiate a subtle grace which is impossible for a human to emulate.This can be seen in even their slightest gestures or the dexterity with which they manipulate small objects.Now they cling to survival by a thread, fighting the horrors of the galaxy with ritualised discipline and consummate skill.The Eldar race has a long and complex spacefaring history, so long in fact that little is known for certain about the course of their physical evolution and early planet-bound existence.The birth of their nemesis, the Dark God Slaanesh, shattered that cycle forever.
