The Mary Sue in all his glory.

Longstrike, real name and title Shas'La T'au Sha'ng, is a T'au tank pilot. His claim to fame is surviving an attack that killed his bond brothers, fighting a valiant retreat before some Razorsharks saved him, and Headshots a fucking Warhound titan, all in the same campaign. Which shouldn't even be a thing, given that Railguns simply should not have that kind of penetrating power, especially against void shields or Heavy Adamantium. Anyway, he helps the T'au curbstomp the Imperium on Taros, and returns a hero, now idolized by the T'au populace.... and that's it. We know nothing else about the guy, and probably never will, seeing how little attention xenos factions get from Games Workshop.

Meanwhile, the Earth Caste decided to build the XV02 pilot suit, which is supposed to give whomever wears it enhanced reaction time and better aim. Essentially, a six million dollar T'au. The catch? Only Longstrike can wear it without going brain dead or becoming a vegetable. He isn't quite as bad as some other Mary Sues, but still a excellent example of one, and how not to write a character.
