The Amarr Empire rises

Originating as a society of religious colonists, the Amarr truly began their path to mastery of the greatest star empire in New Eden with the coronation of the first Amarr Emperor. As the early Amarr society began to be transformed into a theocratic empire, they became aware of other peoples on their home planet of Athra, later renamed Amarr Prime. Determined to spread the word of their religion, the Amarr launched the ‘Reclaiming’: a campaign to conquer the entire planet. The Amarr completed their conquest of Amarr Prime in 20544 AD, and soon began to look to the heavens. Able to reverse-engineer faster-than-light technology from an ancient stargate in the Amarr system, the Empire soon spread far across the stars. Any race the Amarr encountered were absorbed into the Empire by force of arms, and none were able to withstand them until the fateful encounters with the Gallente and Jove. By 21950 AD, the Amarr Empire controlled vast swathes of space and had established the system of Royal Houses, with the Emperor unquestioned as both religious leader and supreme ruler of the Empire.

A legacy of Caldari unity

The planet of Caldari Prime was fortunate to have been colonized by a megacorporation that set in motion the process of terraforming before the catastrophe that closed the EVE Gate. While life was hard, a handful of outposts survived until the air of Caldari Prime became breathable. In time civilization spread across the planet, but inevitably it had devolved to a feudal mode of living. Eventually the two great empires of Raata-Oryioni and Fuukiuye joined under one rule: the Raata Empire. The Raata Empire unified the vast majority of the people of Caldari Prime and endured until its fall in 20998 AD, whereupon it was divided into many states. Yet the Raata period left a great legacy among the Caldari: one of kinship, the importance of family and a sense of collective unity despite a tendency towards independence and internal disputes. The Raata Empire laid the foundations of the unique Caldari sensibility that would lead to the establishment of the Caldari State many centuries later.

Fall of the First Jovian Empire

The Elders brought about its fall. The Elders were one of the first groups to use genetic engineering for a special purpose, namely that of slowing the aging process. Once, the Elders were a prominent political force in the Jovian society, but after they brought about the fall of the first Jovian empire they have become more reclusive. Elders can become many centuries old, it's uncertain exactly how old they can become, but some suggest they can outlive even members of the Amarrian royal families. Presumably the Enheduanni are the Elders, they are the only known political force predating the Directorate, and life extension would explain their ability to survive the long journey to Utopia as caretakers and crew.

Minmatar civilization emerges

The planet Matar was quickly colonized by numerous expeditions due to its very hospitable conditions. When the EVE Gate closed, most of the Matar settlements survived, although they soon lost their technology as lack of supplies led to an inevitable breakdown. Several distinct civilizations developed on Matar and gradually became aware of one another. Eventually, technological advances allowed for regular trade between the different societies and a global culture developed, albeit one steeped in tribal traditions. Over time, the Minmatar unified in a loose empire and made their way into space. The Minmatar Empire was able to settle colonies on a number of planets and moons in several local systems, usually depending on ancient stargates. The later Amarr invasion shattered the Minmatar Empire but memories of tribal unity persisted until the later Minmatar Republic could be founded amidst the flames of rebellion.

Primitive contact

Distinct civlizations on Matar gradually become aware of each other, but primitive technology keeps them from maintaining a steady contact.

Gallente culture blossoms

Although Gallente Prime was a fairly hospitable planet and colonized by people of common cultural heritage, there was an inevitable descent into a medieval society during the Dark Ages of New Eden. In time, the great Rouvenor family came to power on the Garoun continent and quickly built the greatest empire that world had ever seen. Under the great Doule dos Rouvenor III, the Garoun Empire’s extent encompassed much of the planet, though it was not without powerful rivals. The Age of Rouvenor, as it has come to be known, heralded enormous strides in cultural and technological development. While the Garoun Empire collapsed in 21834 AD, it left an indelible imprint on Gallente culture. In particular, the Garoun Empire’s remarkable emphasis on personal liberty echoed down the ages. Indeed, democracy and freedom came to define the global civilization that eventually reached out to the stars and established the Gallente Federation.

The Amarr easily subdue the Minmatar in an attack known as “The Day of Darkness” and take many thousands of slaves. The Amarr continue their slave raids for many decades until finally escalating their attacks into an all-out war of conquest. In the end, the Minmatar Empire is no more and the entire Minmatar race enters a period of subjugation and slavery under the rule of the Amarr Empire.

The Caldari-Gallente war

Inhabiting two planets in the same solar system, the Caldari and Gallente peoples established contact with one another as soon as space technology was developed by the more advanced Gallente. When the Gallente formed their federation with other races they had encountered, such as the Intaki and Mannar, it seemed natural to them that the Caldari should join also. While the Caldari acquiesced in this, the fiercely independent nature of their corporations led them to establish secret bases and colonies in several star systems. The discovery of these bases was the spark that eventually led to the Caldari-Gallente War. A bitter conflict, the war leads to the expulsion of the Caldari from their home planet and the formation of the Caldari State as a fully-independent corporate empire.
