    How many people are familiar with the short piece of fluff in the Necron Codex detailing the actions of an Alaitoc Farseer who was planning on destroying the Culexus Temple. He looked into the future, trying to figure what the outcome of his actions would be, and saw that the destruction of the temple would lead to the doom of Alaitoc. This leaves us with three possibilities.

    1. The temple is secretly controlled by the Necrons and they would destroy the craftworld in retribution for the destruction of the temple. This is unlikely as the necrons are not exactly the kind for retribution; they are more of the kind who would either have destroyed the craftworld beforehand or would take the destruction in stride.

    2. The temple is controlled by the Imperium and they would destroy the Craftworld in retribution. This is unlikely, because, as the Farseer said, the Imperium would destroy Alaitoc without a second thought if they thought that they could.

    3. The Culexus Temple plays a crucial role in either denying the Necrons recruits to make Pariahs or in the eventual defeat of the C'Tan. The Pariahs are probably a critical part of the Necron's plan to defeat the powerful psychics of the Orks, Eldar, Humans and probably Tyranids as well. As a total Culexus fanboy, I would like to see them be the one way the humans have of defeating C'Tan, but merely as recruit denial is cool too.

    Your thoughts?

    Well, possibly the Culexus assassins are destined to assassinate someone with warp powers who could stop the C'tan. Remember, they really hate the Warp. It's the only thing that can stop them.

    No no no, the fiction implied that destroying the Culexus Temple means that the Alaitoc craftworld would be destroyed. Which probably means that the Culexus temple will play some crucial role in defeating the C'Tan, not in assassinating someone who will defeat them.

    Well considering that a C'Tan fears warp powers and a Culexus Assassin is a soulless individual that has no psykic powers at all I would say that this is not the case. Plus it was the C'Tan that changed human DNA a long time ago to create the Pariah Gene, so why would they have created a weapon to harm themselves.

    I'd go for the fact that either its because the Assassins are a bane to chaos, so without them maybe a Chaos attack on the Craftworld happens .... when if the assassin temple had still been around this would not happen. Or a second one is that the Deceiver has a lot of Pariahs, so he might not like the Eldar destroying a world full of his creations.

    Also its not really a good thing to say that it would deny the C'Tan of Pariah Gene people to use .... if you read the Daemonhunters codex you will come across a story in whick Inquisitor Quixos creates soulguard. Now these are basically the same as Pariahs/Culexus. Also the Emperors personal bodyguard are soulless.

    Well I've heard that just as psykers use warp energy, Culexus assassins use 'Anti-warp' energy which is very harmful to psykers and deamons, I don't know of its affect on C'tan though.

    2. Thou shalt not flirt with Howling Banshees. They are the enemy.
    3. Thou shalt not refer to Battle Sisters as Bolter Biatches
    4. Darth Vader isn’t the son of Abaddon
    5. Thou shalt not reassemble a Necron into a washing machine

    Eldrad is dead, by the way. Did you hear? He got sucked into a corrupted Talisman of Vaul.

    Well maybe the 4th c&#39;tan, the outsider, is in bondage inside the assassin&#39;s temple? We have no definate proof of where the outsider is, so he might be being held there. Still in his tomb which the Culexus assassins found long ago, before the actual start, discovering this &#39;paraih gene&#39; and out of dire need, curiousness, or hate for pyskers, they adapted it to there cause, keeping the tomb dormant beneath there newly built temple. The destruction of it would wake the outsider, and being the twisted pyschotic freak he supposdly is, he might just be the person who revviles in vengance. And since his captives are now dead, he wishes to destroy those that destroyed his captives.

    Well, the temple is definatly controlled by the Imperium. The loss of one of the six (i think) temples to necron corruption would be quite a major event, and would not be overlooked by the master assassin lord of terra. Unless he doesn&#39;t know...

    I&#39;m not sure if the pariah gene is a result of c&#39;tan intervention or human mutation, but it sure is a useful tool to the necrons. The c&#39;tan have no power in the warp at all (hence why the outsider is trapped in the webway (if the rumours are true) as he can not do anything about it, he is powerless) and thus, a unit of troops who are warp nulls would be very useful against the phychic races. (eldar, chaos, humans)

    Quite how the destruction of the temple would lead to the destruction of Alaitoc eludes me, unless its destruction sparks human retaliation or prevents the stopping of a chaos assault. But the removal of pariahs would greatly weaken the necrons. hmmm...
