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. They are known for their talented Bonesingers, who are said to be able to practice their art even in the heat of battle. The traditional colours of Il-Kaithe are green, detailed with purple, and even its name is translated as Knowledge of Blood.

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.
