Caldari Prime is the homeworld of the Civireand Deteis people, and is located in theGallente system of Luminaire (which also containsthe Gallente homeworld)

Until recently the planet was claimed and occupied for almost twocenturies by the Gallente Federation, following theGallente-Caldari War. Following unprecedented,state-wide cooperation under the leadership ofTibus Heth, in YC 110 a massive invasion forcesuccessfully penetrated Federation defenses and the planet was onceagain claimed as a sovereign world of the Caldari State.

However in early YC 115, following a period of increasing political andsocial unrest on the planet, the Federation Navy launched a majorassault against the Caldari NavyLeviathan-class Titan Shiigeru and its supportfleet, who had stayed in orbit of Caldari Prime since YC 110 to enforceCaldari possession of the planet. The massive offensive operation tore-conquer Caldari Prime, known as Operation Highlander, ended with thedestruction of the Shiigeru and its catastrophic fall on Caldari Primesurface.

After the cease of the conflict Caldari Prime has been demilitarized byboth Caldari and Gallente forces, and it is now divided in districtswhich are split between Caldari State and Gallente Federationadministrations, with Mordu's Legion being hired as security andpeacekeeper force on the surface.



Caldari Prime was initially a barren, uninhabitable world, and theLuminaire system was initially known only as VH-451. The planet waspurchased during the colonization of New Eden, by an unidentifiedTerran megacorporation who proceeded to initiate aterraforming process designed to convert the inhospitable world into aplanet fit for human habitation. Small-scale colonization began soonafterwards, consisting mostly of pioneers and of the techniciansresponsible for overseeing the terraforming equipment, and theirfamilies.

When the EVE Gate collapsed, Caldari Prime wascut off, and given its inhospitality towards human habitation collapsedinto a dark age very quickly. Most of the colonies died off soon,leaving only a few scattered inhabitants left to struggle on, livingunder the surface which was still under terraforming process. It took246 years for the terraforming process to reach the point where theplanet was habitable and humans could once again venture out onto thesurface. The remains of the ancient underground structures served ashiding places for children during the Gallente-Caldari War.


Caldari Prime is a cold world, largely given over to tundra, withtemperate zones at the tropics and equator. This is partly due to itsbeing near the extreme outside edge of the Luminaire star's habitablezone, and also because the terraforming process, without adequate humanoversight, was improperly completed, with the result that the air ofCaldari Prime is quite thin, its soil is rather barren and its seas andwildernesses were not properly stocked with creatures and plants, manyof which were too delicate to properly survive the frigid temperaturesor incomplete ecosystem. Now, however, the planet produces food inabundance despite its low temperature.

Notable locations include the Kaalakiota Mountains, the city ofArcurio, and the ruins of the underwater Gallentecity of Nouvelle Rouvenor.


The social collapse on Caldari Prime was so complete that it tookanother eight thousand years after the atmosphere became breathable forthe first recorded civilization to arise. Prior to the point, theCaldari consisted of scattered, warring tribes on separate continentswho slowly came together into allied houses. The first empires andbloodlines grew out of these alliances, and over time these empires alsomerged, eventually leading to the formation of the Raata Empire in theyear 17453 AD. This empire lasted until 20998 when it collapsed andsplit into a number of smaller states that were the foundations for themodern Caldari megacorporations.

First contact with the Gallente occurred in 22517 AD, although they hadbeen aware of the (at the time) less technologically advanced Caldarifor fifty-four years prior to that point. The Gallente 'CulturalDeliverance Society' finallyarrived on Caldari Prime one hundred and fourteen years later. When theGallente Federation was founded in 23121, the Caldari were foundingmembers.

The War


The Caldari never wholly clicked with Gallente government. Even whenthey were co-founding the Federation alongside the Gallente,Intaki and Mannar, some of theCaldari megacorporations wereestablishing secret colonies and deep-space resources outside ofFederation borders that weren't subject to Gallente trade regulations.The Caldari viewed this as part of the process of retaining theircultural identity and autonomy.

When the Caldari extraterritorial assets were, as was inevitable,discovered the Gallente demanded that the Caldari assets be placed underFederation control. The Caldari responded by seceding from theFederation. The result was a tense standoff, with Caldari warshipsblockading all of the stargates that had beenbuilt by the mega corporations. The Gallente government spent severaldays debating how to negotiate a peace settlement.

Peace was not given a chance, however. A Caldari extremist organizationknown as the Templis Dragonaurs finallyset light to the powder keg when they bombed the city of NouvelleRouvenor. This city, constructed inside an environment dome deepunderwater, was especially vulnerable to this sort of attack. When thesea waters flooded in through the breached dome, they claimed the livesof more than half a million people.


The immediate response was for the Gallente to initiate an invasion ofCaldari Prime, beginning with a sustained orbital bombardment. Massivelyoutnumbered, the Caldari had no hope of holding on to their homeworld.Evacuating the civilian population required the Caldari to hold theorbit of their planet for a month.

Earning that month required that the Caldari Navy be able to keep theGallente out of the homeworld's orbit and engaged elsewhere. The resultwas a month-long and bloody fight for the orbit of Caldari Prime, thatultimately came to an end with the heroic sacrifice of Admiral YakiyaTovil-Toba in what became known to theGallente as the 'Hueromont Incident'. The Caldari completed theirobjectives for the evacuation of their homeworld, but could notultimately consider themselves successful - they were still forced toleave, and would not return for nearly two hundred years.

The war endured for another eighty years after the evacuation of CaldariPrime.

Capsuleer Era

Pilot capsules were actually a directproduct of the war, and initially used exclusively by the Caldari Navyin battle against the Federation. The technology only became widespreadin YC105, however, more than ninety years afterthe end of the war.

Gallente Occupancy

From the end of the evacuation through untilYC110 (AD.23346), Caldari Prime was part of theGallente Federation, with a population demographic increasingly made upof largely of Gallente and smaller native Caldari population. This wasalways an uneasy arrangement, and Caldari Prime remained a segregatedworld, with distinct districts for each culture, and even whole citieswhere one ethnicity or the other were in the considerable minority. Eclipse j2e.

After the war ended, the continued occupation of the planet became asignificant bone of contention for the Caldari, many of whom felt thatthe homeworld should be returned to them. The Federation, wary ofallowing their former bitter enemies a potential foothold in the capitalsystem never agreed to this point of view, and continued to claim theplanet as their own.


Up until the rise of Tibus Heth, the possiblereclamation of their homeworld was at most a distant, impossible fantasyfor the Caldari. Heth's rise, accompanied as it was by a surge of ethnicviolence on Caldari Prime, prompted PresidentSouro Foiritan to declare a state ofmartial law on Caldari Prime. The enforced curfew resulted in increasedlevels of segregation among the planet's inhabitants.



In YC110, Tibus Heth seized the opportunity created by the Elder attackon the CONCORD Headquarters in Yulai to initiate amassive invasion of the Federation with single-minded intent - therecapture of Caldari Prime. Heth committed 90% of the Caldari Navy tothe invasion. Assisted by the sabotage of the Federation's 'Tripwire'border monitoring system, the treason of AnventEturrer, and the proximity of Luminaire tothe Caldari border (a mere two jumps), the massive invasion force waspretty much guaranteed to succeed.

Hybrid Turrets

With a total of twenty million soldiers committed the ground invasion,and the Luminaire system emptied of Federation warships and everyentrance point thoroughly blockaded, the recapture of the planet wasswift and ruthless, though by most accounts the invading Caldari forcesdid their best to spare civilians of both races.

The martial law and resultant separation of the Gallente and Caldaripopulace into separate districts made it very easy for Heth to twistPresident Foiritain's arm. Faced with the deaths of every Gallente onCaldari Prime and maybe on Gallente Prime as well, Foiritain relentedand used the presidential emergency powers given to him by theFederation Senate to ratify the Federation's surrender of Caldari Primeto the control of the State. Under Foiritain's orders, the Caldari fleetwas allowed to withdraw, leaving a single Leviathan-class titan, theShiigeru, and its support fleet in orbit over the planet.

Caldari Sovereignty

Caldari Prime was a bubble of Caldari territory inside Federation spacefor five years. Foiritan's signing of the treaty that handed the worldback to the State has been alternately hailed as the best possibledecision in a bad situation, and viciously criticized as being'spineless'.

The planet was under occupation by the State's forces, with theoccupying forces consisting mostly of State Army regulars, supplementedby Provist auxiliaries.Naturally, there was a significant resistance movement - either Gallentemilitary who refuse to surrender, or rebellious civilians unwilling totake their home's change of ownership lying down. The most notable ofthese movements was the Joint Resistance Movement. The Caldari wereforced to take extreme measures for dealing with these dissidents.

Operation Highlander

From 15 March YC 115 a new period of unrest started on Caldari Prime,leading to the destruction of Provist headquarters on the 18 March andsubsequently to the Battle of Caldari Prime.

On the morning of March 22 the Federation Combined Armed Forces launchedtheir largest military offensive since the bombardment of Caldari Primeover a century earlier, facing off against the Shiigeru and her supportfleet in an eight-hour battle that saw millions of casualties and thefirst large-scale military use of cloned soldier technology, asthousands of cloned mercenaries fought on both fronts.

Deploying a capital assault force of Nyx-class supercarriers andMoros-class dreadnoughts, the Federation forces were considerably aidedby capsuleer supporters. While the Shiigeru and its escorts weresupported by Caldari loyalist capsuleers, the attacking forces provedtoo strong and the titan was destroyed. Large sections of the titan'ssuperstructure impacted on the surface of Caldari Prime, causingwidespread destruction.

On Caldari Prime itself, clone mercenaries fought fiercely for both theCaldari and Gallente ground forces. Caldari forces were able to hold aslight majority of the planetary surface, a major factor in thesubsequent demilitarization and division of the planet between Caldariand Gallente administrations.

Soon after the catastrophic impact of Shiigeru's remains with thesurface, Ishukone asked permission tothe Gallente Senate to access the planet for relief purposes, permissionthat was granted soon after, and played an important role for thesubsequent diplomatic efforts of ceasing the conflict still ongoing onthe surface.

Demilitarisation of the planet

On April 2 YC 115 an agreement between the Gallente Federation and theCaldari State was signed by President [JacusRoden](jacus-roden) and six of the eight CEOs of the ChiefExecutive Panel. Despite both TibusHeth and Lai Dai CEO Alakoni Ishanoya refused tosign, the bylaws of the CEP de facto bound all megacorporations torespect the agreement. The agreement classified Caldari Prime as ademilitarized zone, prompting both Gallente Federation and Caldari Stateto call off every military operation on the planet and granting alldefence and policing duties of the planet to Mordu'sLegion. The surface has been divided into anumber of districts that has been split between Gallente and Caldariadministration. Roughly fifty-four percent of the districts fall underthe Caldari jurisdiction of the Ishukone Corporation, while forty-sixpercent are Gallente districts administered by Material Acquisition. Thedistricts are purely administrative and are not segregated by ethnicity.

Inhabitants of the Gallente districts are considered full citizens ofthe Federation and fall under all laws that previously applied toCaldari Prime before the Caldari invasion. The Caldari districts areunder a more convoluted system, with individuals retaining corporatecitizenship with their megacorporate employers, though Ishukone collectsadministrative taxes and apply their corporate law for civilianactivities. According to the terms of the treaty, Caldari Prime's twolargest cities, Arcurio and Tovil, are split between the two sides.Tovil falls under Caldari administration, while Arcurio has been placedwithin a Gallente district.
