The Drukhari, also known as Dark Eldar, are kindred to the Eldar who are an ancient and advanced race of elf-like humanoids. Their forces specialise in high-speed warfare, dedicating technological advances specifically to increase speed, though they are often lacking in resilience and numbers. The Drukhari revel in piracy, enslavement and torture, and are the most sadistic race in the Galaxy. Drukhari raiding parties make use of advanced anti-gravity skimmers to launch high-speed raids on their enemy while still transporting a large number of their warriors. Due to their use of the galaxy-spanning inter-dimensional labyrinth known as the Webway, they are extremely mobile, striking from seemingly nowhere, with little or no warning, and vanishing with their captives before a significant military reaction can be mobilised against them.
The Drukhari, or Dark Eldar, are unique amongst the races in the sense that they do not occupy many planets, but rather one dark city called Commorragh, situated within the Webway. Due to the reality-warping properties of the interdimensional Webway, Commoragh appears to possess an impossible scale, acting more like a vast collection of satellite realms and cities that are all linked to one another by either a number of portals or other hidden pathways.
Drukhari are similar in many ways to the rest of the Eldar race - tall, slender, humanoids with tapered ears and sharp eyes. However, generations of conflict combined with living inside the Dark City has led to a number of distinct biological changes. Their skin now appears almost translucent and their eyes have adapted to work perfectly in pitch-black darkness, an effect of the lack of sunlight within Commorragh. The strength and reflexes of the Drukhari, commonly known as Dark Eldar, are arguably superior to that of a Craftworld Eldar, footage of the Evolus Massacre had to be slowed to one-fourth speed in order to follow the movements of individual Kabalites as they slaughtered Imperial civilians. Their reactions are so fast that stories of Drukhari dodging lasguns fire and kicking frag grenades back into the enemy's ranks are common.
No civilisation or settlement is safe from these Deadly raiders!
