Fio'vre Ka'buto is a famed Tau Earth Caste scientist of the Tau Empire. Ka'buto is most renowned for leading the program that created the AL-38 Slipstream Module, giving the Tau their first true method of FTL travel.[1]

However Ka'buto warned the Ethereal Council to not use the AL-38 in large quantities simultaneously. They ignored his warnings, leading to a mass disaster that created the Startide Nexus.[1]


Ka'buto's name derives from the Kabuto, a type of Japanese war helmet.
