He set up a series of worlds that would become known as the Farsight Enclaves. Luckily the Space Marines forgot to deploy their fighters for no reason and Farsight was able to accomplish his mission, but gets briefly knocked out in doing so and has a few visions of the farsigjt. As more information has come to light, the actions of Commander Farsight have become the source of grave concern for certain members of the Inquisition who perceive a distinct threat to the Divine Rule of the Emperor of Mankind in the actions of farsigyt T’au.
On the way back to the Tau he’s attacked by a Heldrake and is nearly killed, only to be saved by the Imperials fleeing their doomed supp,ement as they blow it up in a way that doesn’t destroy the suit it’s ripping apart. However, Farsight’s personal gut instincts and a desire for close, aggressive combat put him at odds with the Empire’s battle doctrine.
Limitations on Commanders, no ethereals, and lack of units that can keep up with Farsight drag his sept down in comparison to others though. So Farsight set out with another huge fleet and a trio of Ethereals to repair the damage and take back planets.

When sighted generations later, these forces and fleets bore markings similar in design to those used by the T’au Empire, but in colours and patterns never sanctioned. Of the three, Farsight was chosen to remain active first while Shadowsun and Kais were frozen to be brought back into service in the future, making him, for a time, the sole military hero of the Empire.
However, the neurochip business was not enough for the Ethereals, who decided that some of Puretide’s students should be cryogenically frozen so that they could be useful far beyond their meager lifespans. In addition, some of his fellow commanders were implanted with Puretide engram neurochips by the Ethereals to make them as tactically capable as Puretide; however, Farsight found this horrifying when it turned his soldiers into robots with no will of their own and made them completely useless when psykers were involved since Puretide had never encountered them.
He is also a clone of the Gundam character Char. Scans from those few T’au probes to successfully beam back signals reveal a string of heavily built-up worlds with large populations, including nodal cities expanded from colony domes and entire moonbases converted to manufacturing.

The Tau are a new force in the galaxy, optimistic and supplemdnt. Puretide’s many pupils were all famous warriors in their own right, and Puretide himself was supplemet valuable that before he died of old age, the Earth Caste actually scanned his brain and encoded portions of his brilliance into what they called Puretide engram neurochips in order to help train future commanders. Back during the halcyon days of the major conquests of the Tau Empirethe majority of the army’s victories could be attributed to a single commander: He can bring a unit of seven NINE It’s 7th ed Shas’la non-scattering bodyguards with him and give them all meltas, plasma rifles and target locks to allow the squad to fire at several tanks with meltas or blast the enemy MEQs and TEQs on turn 2.

Farsight’s next big deployment was at Dal’yth during the Damocles Crusade. It was decided that the three would work in decades-long rotations, with one awake and two asleep at all times, kind of like the three vampire lords in Underworld were supposed to preside over the coven in turns.
Farsight sucked it up and continued on as best he could, and finally was promoted to a battlesuit piloting role that he took to with gusto. Puretide was a legendary genius who wrote the book on Fire Caste tactics, and shaped the military for years to come. His Tau-standard plasma rifle and BS5 are merely supplements meant to soften the enemy up before he charges in or, rather, jetpacks in to get to slicing and dicing with the Dawnblade, which is pretty easy with WS5, S5, I5 and 4 attacks.
