Alaitoc is an Eldar Craftworld known for its extensive use of Rangers. Related to this is the fact that Alaitoc is also a highly ordered Craftworld; many individuals choose instead the Path of the Outcast, becoming Rangers.

Background

While all Craftworlds make use of the highly efficient sniper Rangers, none field or produce more than Alaitoc. By their nature, Alaitoc Rangers, known as the Starstriders[6a], do not reside upon the Craftworld, but travel the galaxy. These rangers retain their loyalty to Alaitoc, only returning to their Craftworld on occasion. Aside from the regular Rangers, Alaitoc is also the only Craftworld to field the highly skilled Rangers known as Pathfinders.[2] These highly trained snipers can cause havoc to the enemy. In times of need the Craftworld sometimes recalls their Rangers to contribute to Alaitoc's forces. Alaitoc can also call upon an unusually high number of Exarchs, as its Eldar are known to become utterly consumed by their chosen Path. This, however, causes many of its citizens to sate their extreme desires by becoming Outcasts, making Alaitoc closely connected to Eldar Corsairs throughout the Galaxy.[6a]

Alaitoc's symbol depicts the Sword of Khaine bisecting the Red Moon, the sigil of the House of Eldanesh, referencing the War Gods slaying of the Eldar hero.[6a]

It is said that by capturing its large numbers of Outcasts, the Imperial Inquisition has gleaned much knowledge of the Eldar through torture. This has increased tensions between the Imperium and Alaitoc, and the two are in a constant state of war.[6a]
