Your use of "before they became corrupted" implied to me that the Lunars seek to remove the Chaos Taint. Not only is that canonically impossible but by extension, it would be akin to the goddess removing her experiences in hell rather than using them to become illuminated.

Oh certainly. With lots of luck, they can even become perfectly house-trained.

A philosophy extant the Lunar Empire <> Lunar philosophy.
