"The Imperials test my patience with their incompetence!"

— Taldeer in Dawn of War: Winter Assault.
Kindly ignore the breast located halfway down her torso.

Taldeer is an Eldar Farseer originally featuring in Dawn of War: Winter Assault expansion and the second expansion Dark Crusade, strangely, both times as the leader of the Eldar faction. She is most well known on /tg/ for being one of the protagonists of the awesome piece of writefaggotry known as Love Can Bloom, alongside the Vindicare assassin LIIVI.

In most drawfaggotry not actually directly related to the content of Love Can Bloom, Taldeer and LIIVI are assumed to have escaped from their predicament in Love Can Bloom and are living happily together on Ulthwé with a child known as Lofn. Taldeer is sometimes depicted as a daughter of Farseer Eldrad, with Macha being her sister. Fellow Farseer Caerys has a bit of a thing for her.

Recently, it was believed that Macha shot and murdered Taldeer in her sleep for being an insufferable bitch. It is unknown whether the story is false, or whether Taldeer was raised as an animate corpse at the bidding of her father. Considering the story took place when Macha was fifteen and doesn't mention LIIVI, more than likely it took place only within Macha's own mind.

It was revealed in Dawn of War 2: Retribution that Taldeer was killed by the Blood Ravens (As told by Azariah as he taunts Ronahn before the Exterminatus). As Ronahn was her twin brother, the Eldar campaign is all about saving Taldeer's soulstone. Which is gay touching.

On the other hand when was the last time Chaos told the truth about anything? For all we know Kyras just killed a body double and didn't care enough to tell the difference. Or he made up the story about killing Taldeer completely to fuck with Ronahn, he's kind of a dick like that.

But if you're a stickler for canon, Taldeer returns in Dawn of War III as a Wraithknight. While the loss of her mortal coil is a matter of no small inconvenience, on the bright side she does get a nifty sword. Compared to the super-unit Wraithknight, she's unmistakably smaller; most likely, Relic meant to call her a Wraithseer and fucked up. that was the wraithlord, shes since showed up in trailers appropriately scaled and in Ulthwé colors.

On one final note; despite her having red hair (assuming it is hair and not something attached to her helmet like a Greek Hoplite crest) for her in-game sprite, 95% of her fan-art has black hair.
