->''"The Reborn are the only hope left to our people. They seek to unite the Aeldari entire – to bring together not only the Craftworlds, but every scattered shard of our race, be they Outcast, Exodite, or soul-hungry Drukari. With the Whispering God’s net gathering us together away from the sight of evil, we shall be reforged. We shall be a people that look forwards in hope, not backwards in despair. Follow them, cast aside your waystone and the crippling fear it represents, and we shall soar on the winds of fate once more."''

Though the Eldar have long been a race on the brink of annihilation, there has remained one final hope for them: Ynnead, God of the Dead. A desperate gambit by Eldrad Ulthuan attempted to birth the deity, but his efforts were disrupted by the intervention of a Deathwatch Kill-Team, resulting in but a fragment of the god emerging. This fragment, however, encountered two Eldar in Commorragh by the names of Yvraine and the Visarch, who had both walked all paths of the Eldar, and they became the heralds of Ynnead, proclaiming that not all Eldar had to perish for the god to be truly formed. To this end, they gathered the forces of those who believed in their word, forming the faction known as the Ynnari, a union of Craftworld Eldar, Dark Eldar, Corsairs and Harlequins, led by the mighty Yncarne, the Avatar of Ynnead.
