This is a profile for the Dark Eldar from Warhammer 40k.

Summary

The Dark Eldar were once part of a mighty civilization that expanded across the entire galaxy in short periods of time with their advanced tech and Webway systems and increased in numbers. The cause of their fall is from their over-excessive wanton and hedonism which lead to the birth of the Chaos God Slaanesh, to this day after their fall, they have continued their hedonistic ways not caring about anything.

Their elite units and leaders can rip souls out of their enemies and even utilize spiritual attacks such as phantasm grenades.

Strengths/Pros

Their Greatest strengths are sudden and merciless hit and run tactics which they pillage entire worlds and vanish before large forces come to attack them. They are mostly satisfied with what they obtained in their raids which would not cause a mutiny or treachery. They also take advantage of any form of treaty or peace agreements with other factions or races so that they would get the better ends of the deals in the end.

Weaknesses/Flaws

The Dark Eldar are well known for their hit and run tactics, however, they are not known for being able to handle the same tactics being used against them. They are also known for being incredibly selfish at times when during a raiding of a world where they act out of their own interest and lack the commands from their superiors.
