Obviously without Slaanesh the Dark Kin would not be in the current state they're in, but I started to wonder do the other Chaos gods have influence in Dark Eldar culture? it would seem that the Chaos gods constantly in a state of conflict and schemes that the gods would try to exert their influence on the Dark Eldar. Could one curb Slaanesh's grip on their soul by turning to another God?

Well, Khorne does through Khaine's influence in the Incubi shrines, and I'm sure he gets something out of the Wych cults. The political maneuvering and needlessly complex plots of everyone would feed Tzeentch. And the misery and despair of everyone who isn't in a position of power would be quite enjoyable to Nurgle

For the other part, I'm sure that a Dark Eldar who swears him/herself to a different god could eventually become "protected" from Slaanesh.

yes, anyone can submit to a chaos god, and Im sure they will be protected kinda like how the harlies (they submit to a weird process that soul binds them to the Laughing God) As to who a chaos eldar would choose??? well I guess that just depends on personal preference Razz

tzeentch maybe for the more sneaky, plotting variety of dark eldar, sorcerous powers might appeal to an archon too

but so does Khorne (slaughtering for more souls and all that) as well as Nurgle (never having to worry about death or disease) and then Slaanesh (they get some pleasure from their soul sucking and torturing, why not get more?)

DE are just like humans for the simple fact that they have all the urges that cause humans to fall to the chaos gods, but theirs are magnefied, the difference is DE have more control, and know all to well the dangers of courting with the ruinious powers.

They also live in the webway where the Dark Gods have zero influence without somebody calling them for a visit. So I guess they're rather invisible to the Gods since they have suffocated their psychic talents and live in a "fake" dimension between the warp and realspace.

Dark eldar are also simply too proud and narcistic to pledge their souls to anybody (and why would they since they are already practically immortal : D)

I tend to ascribe to Distortion's take, myself.

I really doubt there are many, at all, 'Chaos Eldar' even coming from DE roots. The DE know on a more visceral level than really any other race how the Chaos Gods kind of 'suck' (pun intended). Indeed, the Eldar race in general sees themselves as foes of the Chaos Gods and I don't really see why the DE would be any more inclined to topple that way than any of the rest of their kin. They're hedonists, sure, but they're not idiots.

I'm sure it does happen, and I suspect such an alliance could potentially sever them from Slaanesh's influence if the Chaos God was so inclined to extend such protection (I'd tend to expect them not to bother in most cases).
