Something like that doesn't happen overnight.
Was it chance, was it the Eldest who spoke to them, or later the Siren? Was it something else? =O
Your right it doesn't happen overnight. And it didn't.
Remember Suul'ka are ex-Eldest. Only the Eldest and most powerful of a planet can become Suul'ka.
Becuase only the Eldest and most powerful can hide from or avoid the scrutiny of the rest of the Liir on the planet.
It comes from many, many, many years of having to face that inevitable day. When they must chose to kill themselves in the depths.
Some, over the years, slowly, bit by bit, fail in their resolve and choose not to die.
The Siren has indeed lured Eldest into becoming Suul'ka. But not all. How many is not known, I think...
Of course this is all as I understand/remember, so I may be off or wrong in some things.
