Taldeer was a Farseer of either Craftworld Ulthwé (according to the Dawn of War PC game), or Craftworld Biel-tan (according to the Dawn of War novels), and was the leader of the Eldar strike force sent to Lorn V in anticipation of an impending Necron attack. She and her strike force saved General Sturnn's men on two different occasions, without them knowing until much later. When General Sturnn returned the favor by shielding the Eldar from a huge Ork WAAAGH!, the two races formed a temporary (and uneasy) alliance to further their own goals.
Farseer Taldeer later on led a strike force to destroy the Necrons that had arisen on Kronus, that the forces of the Tau were trying and failing to keep at bay. Farseer Taldeer's presence on Kronus attracted the attention of the Imperial General Lukas Alexander, who was tasked with chasing down Taldeer after her manipulation of the Imperial Guard on Lorn V.
Not much is known of Taldeer, other then she was first seen in action on Lorn V, where she helped the 412th Cadian Shock Troops Regiment of the Imperial Guard gain a foothold against the Forces of Chaos and later the Orks. She also led her forces successfully through the Lorn V and Kronus Campaigns.
In the Dawn of War series of novels, Taldeer is portrayed as a member of Biel-Tan's Seer Council and, as is common with Eldar Farseers, a female of breathtaking beauty and elegance. She forms an alliance with Blood Ravens Captain Gabriel Angelos in order to prevent the destruction of a Webway Portal on Lorn V and defeat the reactivation ("Ascension") of a C'tan and its Necron army. She is seemingly killed in action during that campaign, though the Harlequin Solitaire in that story claims to have saved her. If she survived, she was horribly scarred and blinded from injuries sustained from exposure to the Warp and from a crash landing and subsequent explosion.
In Retribution, she comes in the form of a soulstone. It is revealed in the Eldar campaign that she was taken prisoner by the Blood Ravens, most likely following the events of Dawn of War: Dark Crusade where she was "interrogated" by the Blood Ravens under the supervision of Azariah Kyras. According to Kyras, she was tortured and finally executed on Kyras' order. The exact details as to why her soulstone was present/on her person at time of execution are unknown, but it is later revealed Kyras kept it as a trophy on his personage which the Eldar recover in their campaign. It appeared that she's the sister of Ronahn and he brought her to her people.
