Tau are blue-skinned [[Humanoid]]s with hooved feet, no noses, and four-digited hands. Tau can see a greater range of of the electromagnetic spectrum than humans can; are well adapted to hot, dry climates like those prevalent on their homeworld; and can outrun a human; but they are on average physically weaker than a comparably sized human. Unlike many sapient races in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Tau have no [[psionic]] abilities and have a minimal effect on the warp. The species is divided into five distinct castes, with interbreeding between said castes being forbidden.  Each caste has a particular role in Tau society. There are also various vassal species in the Tau Empire, including the [[Kroot]], the Vespid and populations of conquered [[human]]s. Most Tau only live around forty years, but breed, mature and reproduce more quickly than humans. A few individuals are known to live much longer lives.  They also make large-scale use of [[robot]]s.

Tau can see a greater range of of the electromagnetic spectrum than humans can; are well adapted to hot, dry climates like those prevalent on their homeworld; and can outrun a human; but they are on average physically weaker than a comparably sized human. Similarly Tau have greater fine motor control than humans, but slower reflexes.
