Well, if the fluff confirms it, the fluff confirms it. I can kvetch on the internet all I like and it won't change nothin'.

In reality, hybrids only occur with very closely related species - humans and chimps are a no-go - and are riddled with health issues.

While a hybrid could be an interesting character (perhaps playing off their inherited weaknesses as well as strengths, their sense of not belonging and hiding what they are from damn near everyone they meet), I've seen a fair few in fanfic over the the years and they almost all seem to be just appealing to the author's love of elves and half-elves in generic fantasy.

While I suppose some nasty individuals on both sides might go for that thing, according to their own fluff (with eldar the reproductive system being progressive) it would need to occur on multiple occasions. And the mother would either be willing or unable to stop the monster-child coming to term. Amazingly, love would seem a more likely origin for such a creature.

Wait so does this mean I can still get it on with those sexy Eldar ladies? My form of diplomacy is much more effective and fun.

"You do not need to look to the stars to find the greatest obstacle this Conclave faces, my brothers. Simply gaze around this room and you will find such a sea of discord as to make your foes cackle with glee." - Inquisitor Eistus Gracker in address to the Calixian Conclave

"There are dark pitted corners of our universe that have bred the most unfathomable horrors and blasphemies that would burn and blind the sanest man. Fortunately sanity has never been a prerequisite of membership in the Holy Ordos." - Inquisitor Silas Marr

Yeah, we've already discussed (to death) how an Eldar-Human hybrid is not possible in another thread. I wasn't aware the fluff actually stated it had occurred, I thought it only implied it.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

This is 40K people. There is no End all be All answere. If Chapters Due says it is possible then it is possible. In the future where Tech allows for gene splicing, cloning, and a touch of "Magic", really does not seem farfetch.

Oh god! The love burns! Bring back the grimdarkness! Bring back the grimdarkness! Before another Chaos God is born and Hello Kitty Daemons arise and start giving comfort circle hugs to everyone!

My advice to you is to get married, if you have a good wife you'll be happy; if you get a bad one you'll become a philosopher.

In the grim darkness of the future the economy has even hit daemons, The Changeling is working at White Castle and Skarbrand is giving head in the alley next to Fateweaver's.You ever receive fellatio from a rhyming demon? It's a bad scene man.

Sticking your junk into a fang-filled mouth that breathes fire doesn't strike me as particularly smart.
Which is why that option should be available to any willing to take it.

In fact, there should be fang-faced, firebreathing demons on every streetcorner offering to pay 100 dollars to give BJ's. The gene pool would be vastly better off without anyone incapable of thinking it through.
