Question: Are Gue'Vesa considered to be part of the Fire Caste, or are they just associated soldiers? Biggus Berrus 09:33, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

The caste system only applies to the Tau. Humans are not segregated along caste lines and the term Gue'vesa just means "Human Helpers" thus it applies to any human citizen of the Tau empire ranging from soldier to planetary governor. ilniaj

Gue'Vesa Space Marines[edit]

Does the Humans that joins Tau Empire can be Space Marine chapter that joins Greater Good?

if no then why?

  • Space Marines are still individuals, so theretically one could abandon his chapter and join the Gue'vesa. It's probably unlikely though. Why would most Space Marines give a crap about the Tau when humans under the Tau are still second class citizens? It's easy for an individual human to turn if that human's life was crap and the Tau offer a better life, but a Space Marine probably looks at humanity as a bigger whole than that. Maybe a space marine will turn against the Imperium for individual freedom (like Huron did) or because Chaos corrupted him, but I don't think the Tau have much to offer a Space Marine from either an individual or an idealogical point .
