    Mistweaver and new AoS elves

    Hey guys!

    I was posting some thoughts on what the new elves might be fluff-wise on another thread but then I thought that I am also curios about your theories and so I thought better to open a new thread...

    I base the following theory on the new Mistweaver model from the Silver Tower box.

    You might remember that in the End Times serie is mentioned more than once the Haven that Lileath (AKA the Lady of The Lake, AKA Ladrielle, Lady of the Mists) created to give a hope of survival to the elves before sending his lover Araloth there prior to the destruction of the Old World. She and Araloth also had a daughter whom, according to Araloth's fluff in WE Armybook 8ed, should play a very important role in the future of the elven race.
    The last thing we heard about this interesting side plot is that Lileath could not sense the Haven anymore and feared that the Chaos Gods found and devoured it, although there was no explicit hint at this being true (and if you ask me basic storytelling suggests that, until you see the corpse, you should not assume that the murder really took place).

    Now let's move forward to the AoS and the new Mistweaver model... What can we see?

    First of all it has a strong mist theme, with Ladrielle being known in the Old World as the Lady of Mists, protector of all things that are hidden or lost, and being associated with this particular phenomenon many time. She was goddess of mysteries and illusions as well, both elements featureing quite heavily in the description of the Mistweaver.
    Then we have the crescent moon appearing quite extensively on the model and again symbolizing Lileath in her aspect of Goddess of Dreams (as represented on Teclis' staff holding a crescent moon).

    Putting all these hints together I think it's not such a stretch to theorize that these new aelves are the descendants of Lileath' and Araloth's daughter, who survived the Age of Chaos hidden in the Haven Lileath created and protected by the spirits of the defunct Grail Knights.

    What do you guys think? Am I crazy? Am I seeing too many signs and omens in GW's simple writing?
    I believe that this could be a very interesting way of introducing aelves in the new setting keeping them in line with one of the most interesting storylines in the ET serie!
