Il-Kaithe is one of the lesser known Eldar Craftworlds. Being located close to the Eye of Terror, Il-Kaithe is constantly warring against the forces of Chaos and willing to ally with the Dark Eldar, and even humans, to further their crusade against the Dark Gods.[2] They are known for their talented Bonesingers, who are said to be able to practice their art even in the heat of battle.[1] The traditional colours of Il-Kaithe are green, detailed with purple, and even its name is translated as Knowledge of Blood.[4]

Il-Kaithe's symbol is the magical helm of Eldanesh, the mythical folk-hero of the Eldar who received an all-seeing knowledge from the gift of Asuryan. Il-Kaithe uses the rune to remind themselves that knowledge can have terrible cost, for in the end Eldanesh foresaw his own murder by Khaine.[2]
