The Kabal of the Crimson Woe is a small band of Eldar---nefarious alien corsairs and pirates---that operates throughout the Calixis Sector. The Kabal strike at shipping with impunity, seizing loot and taking prisoners, leaving rescuers to find naught but deserted ships floating through space, nary a bloodstain or warning message to provide evidence of what has passed. They have also been known to raid settlements on frontier worlds, carrying off colonists as slaves, never to be seen again. The Kabal take particular delight in striking at targets right under the noses of their enemies, attacking heavily defended planets or ships under escort.
The Kabal have been known to undertake work as mercenaries, attacking targets of interest to other parties. The Kabal can raid settlements or attack spacecraft, operating as discreetly or overtly as required. Far more useful is their talent for snatching particular individuals as part of their raids, using an attack as a diversion, or simply ensuring that the chosen victim vanishes. These cruel Eldar have a special fondness and aptitude for torture, and they can be contacted to obtain information from prisoners. Those with qualms about such activities are best advised not to ask how the Kabal have come to possess such accurate information, of course.
Dealings with the Kabal is never a clean-cut transaction, however, as they have a habit of attacking other targets of opportunity along the way, or turning on their employers after the payment has been made. It takes a canny and ruthless individual to maintain the upper-hand when dealing with the Eldar, and woe betide any who let slip that they are attempting to deceive the Kabal. A special punishment indeed is reserved for those unlucky few who have tried.
