The EVE gate first opened thousands of years ago allowing settlers to travel from Earth. After a time, the gate closed stranding the settlers. Over the years, civilization redeveloped and grew into it's current state. For more than a century, the five empires have lived together in relative peace. They’ve continually strived to maintain this peace, as each faction realizes only too well the grave consequences of a massive inter-stellar war. Recent technological breakthroughs in FTL travel, and the ensuing increase in space travellers, have shaken, but not broken, the fragile peace... at least not yet.
Races and Factions
View main article: Races
The world of EVE is inhabited by five major races: the Amarr, Caldari, Gallente, Jove, and Minmatar, and numerous smaller factions. All of these races are of human origin; their ancestors entered this little part of the universe thousands of years ago through a natural wormhole. Though most of the first settlements collapsed when the wormhole suddenly closed, a few survived. Today’s races are the descendants of those scattered colonies.
Quafe is a carbonated soft drink in the EVE World. It's popular enough that the Quafe Company is actually a rather large corporation with influence that spans across the regions of EVE.
