The Dal'yth Sept was one of the First Phase Colonies to be established during the early stages of the Tau expansion into space.
Commander of the 4th Hunter Cadre, Shas'o Dal'yth Or'es Shi, was one of the first to make planet fall along with a small recon force and Water Caste negotiators. Some how a race called the Eldar had foreseen their incursion and had teamed up with the ever feared Space Marines to thwart their mission. Meeting on the outskirts of an abandoned town the forces clashed. Unprepared for this encounter the Tau withdrew from the battle suffering several losses including the capture of a Water Caste negotiator.
The commander returned to the Custodian cloaked in high anchor and reported the missions downfall to the ranking Ethereal. Soon an attempt will be made to recover the lost Tau on the planet called Ostrius but further recon missions will need to be carried out in preparation.
The Tau have kept a cloaked Drone near the Worm Hole that delivered them here in an attempt to analyse it's properties, to see if re-entering the Worm Hole will take them back again, but by the Ethereal's orders, hast in their departure could cost more than deemed necessary...
