Sept Information

Before being settled by the Tau, Dal'yth had a wild ecosystem of deep blue foilage and slithering segmented beasts. It was tamed long ago during the First Sphere of Expansion and has been brought into compliance with prime-level colony standards every since. Because of its high proportion of Water Caste members, Dal'yth has enjoyed beneficial trade agreements, and has recently been counted as one of the Nineteen wonders of the Tau Empire.[1]

Today vast hexagonal urban areas cover the surface of the planet, where marketplaces flourish and many embassies are housed. This sept has a disproportionate amount of Water Caste traders. It was the place of birth of Commander Puretide, hailed by many as the greatest military genius the Fire Caste have ever produced.[Needs Citation]

Invasion

Dal'yth was the scene of heavy fighting between the Imperium and Tau during the Damocles Crusade.[1] Though Dal'yth was ravaged and many of its colonies and cities were destroyed, it has recovered quickly, thanks to its busy trade ports. Large numbers of aliens can be seen here, alongside Water caste merchants and diplomats.[2]
