Chimera Kairiola's Sacrifice SKIN (Permanent)
State "eba ketsi" banners and a unique honor pattern mark the heroic sacrifice of the Kairiola.
Every Caldari child learns the story of Admiral Yakiya Tovil-Toba and the Kairiola, the fighter carrier he commanded during the First Caldari-Gallente War. Viewed as a war of independence by the Caldari, the war established the Caldari State as a power in its own right but was long, bloody, and noted for many sacrifices and heroic acts by Caldari patriots.
At the climax of the first stage of the war, as the Caldari people attempted to breakout of the siege of Caldari Prime, Admiral Tovil-Toba mounted a campaign of misdirection and distraction with a rag-tag fleet led by the Kairiola. When the heavily damaged carrier was the only remaining ship, Tovil-Toba ordered it into a death dive towards the Gallente homeworld. This act resulted in massive damage and sowed confusion among Gallente forces allowing millions of Caldari to escape.
To this day, Admiral Yakiya Tovil-Toba is considered the paramount national hero of the Caldari State, and he and the crew of the Kairiola are revered for their sacrifice.
