Since his act of incredible treason caused the Craftworld to declare that Eldrad had interfered with fate one time too many, Eldrad has been involved in aiding the Ynnari. Although he is most well-known as the High Farseer of Ulthwe, he did not begin that way, and his time on the Seer Council of Ulthwe was a surprisingly volatile one. Namesake Edit "Ahriman" is actually the name of an evil god.In Zoroastrianism, Zoroaster, the founder of the religion, predicted the end of the world, and in that period the good god will battle the evil, whose name is Ahriman. The gum pain will be considered a normal part of everyday life, and they will regularly take painkillers. He was a bit preoccupied for sure. Living in constant pain, only worsened by eating, this massive hive of ’Nids will starve and become extinct, a result of their own adaptation abilities. In the aftermath, though, despite his colossal cock-up (the first of a career of failures; to be fair the plan was working until the mere presence of Jain Zar started twisting fate to suit her goals; Phoenix Lords are fucking freaky like that), Eldrad's arrogance continued to rub Jain Zar the wrong way, and he refused to allow the former High Farseer's Spirit Stone into the Infinity Circuit, deciding he could make better use of it personally (which probably means it just got chucked into his big collection of tokens). After this, he became pretty unpopular with both Ulthwe and the Cabal alligned part of the Eldar race, and decided to go solo to get things done. Even if their time is up, if they're going down, they're taking Chaos with them. Eldrad has more raw power, he's an Alpha Plus Level Psyker. The mark limits his options in forcing him to take at least one of his 4 powers from disciple of tzeentch. And of course, Craftworld Ulthwé would have been the next target for that particular hive to eat. He can recoup a portion of the power he puts into every psychic power he uses.

In fact I can't remember ever reading any stories where Eldrad fights directly with his psychic power. 30) Wasn't Malcador even stronger than Magnus? He is one of the Eldar that guided the survivors of Cadia on Kalisus to Macragge to resurrect Roboute Guilliman. Well there isnt much of a comparison, and it also depends on your playstyle. As. When the ’Nids invade them in 3000 years, they too will be infected by the gingivitis disease—but they are mindless beasts, who know nothing of painkillers. It is unlikely that this explosion will be able to kill the Gods, but it will likely weaken them seriously. 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. Since Ahriman is a spirit of opposition, we might begin to understand his nature by understanding what he opposes: the Gods' plan of earthly and human development. In his defence, to make an omelette you gotta break some eggs (as the Mon'Keigh saying goes) and while Eldrad's bodycount is frighteningly high, most of his actions have prevented even greater loss of Eldar lives further down the path even as they guaranteed the deaths of many. Magnus is the only Mastery Level 5 on the table top ATM, he's potent AF. As of the 13th Black Crusade, Eldrad is getting more active. In the end, it was only because Jain Zar changed her mind and decided to believe in Eldrad that she moved to intervene. 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. If he's taken as your Warlord he gets Ulthwé's unique Fate Reader trait, which gives you a Command Point at the beginning of your turn if you roll a 6. In a strange case of "Just as planned" this apparent failure, actually turns out to be a complete success. What form or how this friendship came about is unknown, but it is clear that by the time of the Heresy something *cough*. Today, Scuba Steve is going to tell you about the Big Daddy Farseer, Eldrad Ulthran – Buckle up, guys and gals, you’re in for one hell of a ride. Eldrad is tied for 4th on the list, alongside 40k-era Ahriman. Before his apparent death, Eldrad was over 10,000 years old, and was the first to warn the Imperium of Horus' treachery. Eldrad was a Kastrian who developed many scientific marvels for his people.
