Blel Kadri of the Klas Blel Brood served the Tau during many wars as a bonded-mercenary, earning his freedom with three hundred kill notches carved into the wooden stock of his long-rifle. He returned from the Outside to the wandering rogue-moon that had been his home as a hatchling, and lived peacefully amongst the brood for a decade, until the Arch-Heretic Quarrus Xolomon came with his murdering cultists and began to hatch his army of Warped Ones. The lives of many Kroot were taken by the Warped Ones until the Bronze Man came with his giant warriors in silver and defeated the Arch-Heretic in the battle that would be known to the brood as the Cleansing, and which the Imperials called the Xolomon Deviance.
