    For some reason when I think of them all I can picture are images of the hybrids in SC2.

    Yeah, I definitely could see the Protoss being similar to the Eldan! :D

    I like the idea of the Eldan having been the cause of their own demise, but suddenly and unintentionally.

    :eek: Whoa. So cool. :up: Yeah, I dig that! Never knew those existed (although I've only watched gameplay of Starcraft and never had the pleasure of playing it for myself :().

    Personally I'm hoping for this:

    Marvin is one of my all-time favorite cartoon characters! :inlove:

    People say he's evil... I think he's just misunderstood. "Blocking his view of Venus" is a perfectly valid reason for wanting to blow up Earth.

    Back on topic though. I could totally imagine them as huge floating brains, like if they were from a 1957 sci-fi movie:

    They look like the "Golden Army" from the Hell Boy movie!

    I think it's safe to assume this what they look like. (from "What is Wildstar")

    I dont think its safe to assume nothing yet lol, but it might be. But i still have doubts they would just show an Eldan in a trailer just like that, since its part of the mystery of the game.

    Who knows =)

    I think the Eldan "disappeared" to start the Protostar Corporation. So that big green guy is really an Eldan, they just don't want anyone to know.

    I agree with this. I'd like the Eldan to be "pretty." Elf-like in a way.

    I'm thinking they follow that classic Sci-Fi trope of "evolving beyond our comprehension," but take forms that we're "comfortable" with. I'd also like to think that the Eldan don't follow our ideas of good and evil, and instead do things for reasons we don't understand, or just plain do things we don't understand. Elevating the Cassians, for instance. Why? Is it a game? An experiment?

    We'll most likely find out in-game, and given the story path that a lot of MMOs follow, the Eldan will probably reappear at some point as antagonists for both factions (maybe the Dominion has outlived its uses, whatever those were, or they've simply gone crazy). I just hope Carbine handles the Eldan revelation and potential hostility better than WoW and TOR and their antagonists.

    This is the best theory so far, I feel. Here we even have a shot of what eventually became of the Eldan Mechari production line...

    Isn't the guy in your signature an Eldan? :cautious:

    Well... It's not dangerous to assume it!

    Eldan looked exactly like mechari, which are made in their image.
