The Fall destroyed Eldar civilization as it had been, countless billions on millions of worlds slain in one instant, the columnation of millennia of collapse, the birth of the Doom of the Eldar Incarnate, the Chaos God Slaanesh.
Since that fell day, the temptations of darkness have lurked in the shadowed recesses of the Eldar mind, the temptations which destroyed their kind preying still upon the survivors. As the long years have passed, aboard the Craftworlds hanging in the cold void, on the savage Exodite worlds, anywhere which the survivors of the Eldar dwell, that temptation has called to them.
The Dark Eldar are never spoken of by their kin. Aboard the Craftworlds, it is as if they had never existed. In the ancient records of the Adeptus of Earth, the Dark Eldar are mentioned rarely and without great detail. Few among humankind know of their existence. To the Traitor Legions, in the depths of the Eye of Terror, the Dark Eldar are an enigma; sometimes friend, sometimes foe, sometimes slave.
The Dark Eldar are those who have fallen from the Path to the arms of Chaos. The logic, the ordered consistency of the Eldar mind is lost and the chaotic inner self emerges. No minion of Chaos is as totally enslaved as a Chaos Eldar, no being so completely beyond redemption. Under the mastery of the Dark Gods, the Fallen Eldar are slaves without resistance or hesitation. The bloody records of their deeds are spread across the galaxy, in hundreds of planets decimated, countless millions slain or sacrificed. Their existence is a testimony to bloodshed and chaos. Of all the Gods of Chaos, Slaanesh holds the greatest lure on the Eldar psyche, for he was born of them, the incarnation of the darkness of their thoughts, the worst of them made manifest. Khorne and Tzeentch, masters of bloodshed and mystery, have their place and their worshippers in the Eldar, but Slaanesh is the master of their souls, the Lord of the prison to which they have damned themselves.
Most Fallen Eldar wander the galaxy, sometimes aboard giant space hulks,
other times passing through the warpgates of the Eldar Craftworlds. Some
few have taken planets for their own kind, building their resources, using
them as bases of operation for bloody crusades. Most infamous of the Dark
Eldar, however, are the denizens of the Nehathroth Craftworld. In the dark
days following the Fall, when the surviving Craftworlds fled and none knew
if any other Eldar had survived anywhere across their space, the darkest
records of the Black Library record one which turned to the forces of their
destruction and sought solace. The Eldar of Nehathroth Craftworld gave
themselves over completely to the Dark Gods. Their Craftworld is a dark and
terrible realm, where tunnels of carved black rock weep blood and the
screams of the dying and the damned echo. Where once the great gardens
stood, tortured souls hang from dying trees and cauldrons of blood boil. At
its heart, where once the Throne of the Avatar of Kaela Mensha Khaine stood,
stands an altar of bone, radiant with the dark power of Chaos, a gate
through which the dread minions of the Dark Gods may be brought forth.
The Dark Eldar may, as described, be given Chaos Gifts from the Codex Chaos book. These are all at the points costs listed in that book and the usual requirements apply (for example, one must bear the Mark of Khorne to be gifted with the Collar of Khorne). These lists may be used to represent a force from Nehathroth Craftworld, or a Reaver Legion of Dark Eldar.

GREATER DAEMONS: Dark Eldar armies may purchase Greater Daemons. Full rules for Daemons, Summoning, and other aspects of Daemon Lore may be found in Codex Chaos.

DARK ELDAR SPECIAL CHARACTERS
ARHRA THE FATHER OF SCORPIONS, THE FALLEN PHOENIX ... 226 points plus wargear
Arhra was the first of the Striking Scorpion Aspect Warriors. In the dark days after the Fall, the Eldar suffered attacks from humans, Orks, pirates and countless other dangers. It was in these times that Asurmen founded the Aspect Warriors, and it was in these days that Asurmen heard stories of a warrior aboard the Tlaioc Craftworld, a warrior who had fought raiding parties of Orks, dancing among them like a supernatural force. Asurmen travelled to Tlaioc Craftworld and found the storied warrior. Arhra learned the arts of war from Asurmen, and used them in unison with his inhuman speed and agility, and daring. When Asurmen left Arhra to continue his work, Arhra founded the first Shrines of the Striking Scorpion Aspect Warrior.
The Tlaioc Craftworld, many years later, passed through a small kingdom of human settlement, and came under attack again and again. Arhra led his Scorpions against the human worlds. The campaign was long and bloody, but in the end the humans were crushed and Arhra returned to his home. In his absence the Eldar of Tlaioc had fallen to the worship of Chaos. Ravening hordes of worshippers were driving back those Eldar who had not succombed, driving them into the heart of the Craftworld. Desperate to save his people, Arhra sought the aid of Asurmen, but when Asurmen saw the extent of the corruption he ordered his followers to destroy the Craftworld itself, sacrificing the few survivors to exterminate the plague of Chaos Worship. It is said that the rages of Arhra rivalled those of the ancient Gods. Denouncing Asurmen, Arhra called upon the forces of Chaos to give him strength and attacked his teacher. The battle waged long and hard, and in the end Arhra wounded Asurmen and, thinking him dead, fled.
In the days since, Arhra has pursued his vengeance against Asurmen and his descendants, delving further and further into the dark light of Chaos for the strength and longevity to fulfill his vengeance.
Arhra is among the most feared of the Dark Eldar, a Fallen Phoenix Lord who has stalked the Eldar race for ten thousand years. The crimes he has since committed against the Eldar people are beyond count, and yet still he rages, crying out for vengeance against the followers of Asurmen's legacy.

SHALISSA, HUNTRESS OF SLAANESH ................... 112 points plus wargear
The Harlequins of the Laughing God have dedicated themselves to destroying the taint of Chaos on the Eldar soul. In the pursuit of this goal, they have learned much of the Dark Eldar, and hunted down and destroyed many of their fell number. Names like Arhra the Father of Scorpions and Telianis Thoughtsinger burn in their minds, horrific Eldar Champions of the Dark Gods who have eluded death for millennia. However, among all the ranks of the dark Champions of Chaos, no one name burns as brightly as Shalissa, Huntress of Slaanesh.
Once, long ago, a troupe of Harlequins learned of the movements of Arhra the Fallen Phoenix and plotted an ambush. Secreting many of their number in the web of warpgates, they awaited his approach. When he arrived, they attacked.
Howling with fury, Arhra fought with the skill of ten thousand years, slaying the Avatar of the troupe with his first blow. The Harlequins fought, attempting through sheer weight of numbers and ferocity to bring down the ancient being. Many Harlequins were slain that day, torn asunder by whirring chainsword blade and crackling power fist.
One warrior, leading a troupe of warriors against the Fallen Phoenix, found a chink in Arhra's armour and struck him. Crying out in agony, Arhra faltered and the warrior raised her sword for a killing blow.
In that moment, if that warrior had struck, the history of the Eldar people might have been quite different. The Chaos God Slaanesh spoke to her in that moment. The Prince of Chaos offered her much, for Arhra was among the greatest of His servants, and was not meant to die in an ambush on some forgotten world. He offered her power, immortality, everything which came of Chaos.
The Harlequins curse that day in their memory, the day in which Arhra could have been slain at last, but was not, the day one sworn to the Laughing God was embraced by the Dark Prince. In the days since that dread event, that warrior has led her own path of rampage and slaughter, her soul irredeemably lost to Darkness. She wears still the mask of her Harlequin self, and taunts her bretheren with their failure. Above all others, the Harlequins would see her slain, for as long as she lives she is a reminder of the weakness within even the strongest of them.
She is Shalissa, the Huntress of Slaanesh.
Shalissa may be included in any Dark Eldar army as an Exalted Champion. She may not be the army commander.
