Minmatar

Maelstrom Blue Tiger SKIN
Maelstrom Dawn of Liberation SKIN
The Great Rebellion was the dawn of liberation for the Minmatar tribes that once lived almost entirely under the dominion of the Amarr. When the slave revolt broke out in 20 BYC (AD 23216), it stunned an Amarr Empire already reeling from the shock of their defeat by the Jovian fleet at the Battle of Vak'Atioth. The Minmatar that rose up were quickly able to cut a swathe through the territories surrounding the Matari home worlds, aided by groups of free Minmatar who had long operated as guerilla fighters both planet-side and in space. The Minmatar Republic was founded by four of the great tribes and was invited to join in the foundation of CONCORD in 3 BYC. By the end of YC 111, the Nefantar, Starkmanir and Thukker Tribes had rejoined their Brutor, Krusual, Sebiestor and Vherokior brothers and sisters in the Minmatar's Tribal Republic.

Maelstrom Snowline Bladeracer SKIN
In the icy climes of the Northern Mikramurka on Matar there are many traditional forms of transport that take advantage of the snow and ice fields to be found there. One of the most celebrated is still found as a traditional sport around the seismically active western interior of that region. The "bladeracer" sled competitions are usually held on the relatively gentle slopes of the dormant shield volcanoes typically found in the area. The climate means that the upper reaches of the volcanoes are covered in snow and ice all year round but the lower areas remain rather fertile and are warmed by vents. The consequent profusion of heathers and mosses give the hills and slopes their characteristic purple coloration during the "warm" season.

Tempest Aurora Universalis SKIN
Auroras, or polar lights, are a universal concept and shared experience among the peoples of New Eden. The heavily-populated terrestrial home planets are particularly noted for stories and myths involving these striking, dancing lights in the sky. To the Amarr, the aurora are linked to ancient religious stories and are sometimes known as "Sefrim Banners", alluding to the angelic figures considered messengers from God. A tradition of the appearance of these lights heralding divine approval for the armies of Amarr during the Reclaiming of Athra is well attested. For the Caldari, the polar lights are the enigmatic "Flame Wind", a mysterious force in the animistic mythology of Caldari Prime's pre-industrial era. On the cold Caldari home world, the appearance of the aurora was associated with unusual weather and sudden migrations of animals. The various nations of Gallente Prime had their ancient legends about polar lights but knew the aurora to be an interaction of atmosphere, magnetic fields and stellar winds from the time of the "Airship Wars". Viewing aurora on airship trips to the polar regions of Gallente Prime is a popular tourist activity on the planet. The Minmatar have a somewhat mixed viewpoint on aurora, with some believing that such lights were seen during the storms that wracked Matar during the "Day of Darkness" that heralded the Amarr invasion. However, most think this notion misreads the fragmentary tales of what happened in those times. The traditional view of the polar lights, at least for tribes such as the Brutor and Sebiestor, is that they represent a "standing place gathering" or moot of tribal spirits. At the time of the Yoiul Festival, the aurora lights of the worlds of New Eden are one reminder of the shared history of the people of the cluster and have becomes a symbol to some of their universal connections with one another.
Tempest Bloody Hands SKIN
The Bloody Hands of Matar is a Minmatar terrorist organization responsible for numerous attacks in both the Republic and the Amarr Empire. The group was founded in early YC109, during a period of protest and rioting at the killing of Defiants leader Karishal Muritor by Republic forces acting under the orders of Karin Midular's government. It is believed that the 'Bloody Hands' symbolism was inspired by the use of a bloody fist logo by the Ushra'Khan alliance of capsuleer freedom fighters. The Bloody Hands of Matar turned from protest to terrorism with a campaign of firebombing Amarr and Ammatar interests on Minmatar worlds. The group's violence escalated with a bomb attack on the Egbonbet Republic Parliament station that succeeded in assassinating a visiting Ammatar Mandate ambassador in mid YC109. The terror group pulled off their greatest coup in March YC112, killing thousands in the massive bombing of an Amarr Ministry of War station in Pashanai system. Although hunted by both Republic Security Services and the Amarr Ministry of Internal Order, the Bloody Hands have evaded elimination and officially remain an active threat.

Tempest Capsuleer Day XV SKIN
Mark the 15th anniversary of the dawn of the Capsuleer Age with the Capsuleer Day XV nanocoating. Since YC105, the world of New Eden has been transformed by the growth of the Capsuleer space pilot community. In YC120, the Capsuleers are at the forefront of space colonization and the exploration of new frontiers, making Capsuleer Day XV a moment for celebrations across New Eden.

Typhoon Absent Heroes SKIN
This Minmatar nanocoating design symbolizes the many absent heroes of the tribes, those who fought for freedom and to liberate slaves in the distant past of rebellions against the Amarr Empire and in the present day reality of New Eden. Whether known to be dead, disappeared or captured, the absent heroes of the Minmatar liberation struggle are celebrated by this design.
Typhoon Abyssal Firestorm SKIN
Noting the unusual effects that can be obtained when incorporating Triglavian subroutines and traces of Abyssal materials into nanocoatings, a commercial product that replicates the look of the plasma firestorms that rage in certain Abyssal Deadspace pockets was developed.

Typhoon Cryptic Mimesis SKIN
Military experts have studied rogue drones extensively in an effort to learn useful techniques from these inscrutable, collective intelligences. Many observer units have attempted close-range study using a combination nanocoating and holoprojection method of imitating rogue drones, so as to achieve a kind of camouflage effect. The success rate of such attempts has not been released publicly but is thought to somewhat low. Oddly enough, the rather unusual look that can be achieved using the attempted camouflage method has caught the eye of some spaceship captains. The nanocoating and holography patterns may have limited utility as practical camouflage but its aesthetic properties has a certain appeal and can be seen being flaunted by some pilots plying the spacelanes of New Eden.

Typhoon Hunter's Quiver SKIN
Hunters using arrows to catch their prey is a common enough theme in the history and legends of New Eden. A quiver of arrows ready for use is echoed in the stylized patterning of this nanocoating. The hunt for prey no longer involves arrows but the thrill of the chase remains as primal an emotion as it was for the hunters of ancient tales.

Typhoon Krusual SKIN
Typhoon Malagrin Marshlight SKIN
The vast low-lying deltas and marshy plains of Luminaire's Western Morthane region have a long and dark history in folklore and in the ancient warring states period of the Gallente home world's past. Inhabitants on the periphery of the Great Morthani Wastes have many legends of spirits of light and flame seen wandering the swamps and several of these are feared as devils and demonic beings. The Western Morthani natives called the most-feared of these spirits the "Boitata", and believed it to be a fiery serpent with a penchant for consuming the eyes of the dead and perhaps even the sinful living. Garouni settlers on the far western edge of the Great Wastes called this legendary demon "Malagrin" and also noted the tendency for livestock drowned in the marshes to attract these eery lights. Military disaster is also a feature of the history of the Great Morthani Wastes. In its epic campaign to overthrow the ancient slaveholder Empire of Morthane, the Garoun Empire made several attempts to bypass the blistering deserts of Southern Morthane by marching armies through the western swamps. The legions of Garoun failed to penetrate the grim marshlands at every try, giving up on the route after an entire army, wracked by disease and starvation was destroyed by Morthani raiders at the south-eastern edge of the great wastes. Some tales are told of lights dancing on the corpses of the lost soldiers of Garoun and this has become part of the Malagrin and Boitata legends on either side of the vast swamps.

Typhoon Triglavian Twilight SKIN
Commissioned in YC121 by CONCORD's own Kjersidur Elladall of the Directive Enforcement Department, these commemorative SKINs serve as a reminder and a badge of honour for those daring Capsuleers who risked all to say "I was there" when the Triglavian Collective breached the boundaries of Abyssal Deadspace and invaded the systems of New Eden. In that year across the Empire-owned systems of the cluster, Conduits from Abyssal Deadspace appeared and carried the forces of the Collective into the comparatively rich and utopian star systems that CONCORD and the DED are sworn to protect. CONCORD will never forget - nor fail to honour - the brave pilots who dedicated their time, their resources and their clones in the fight against the Triglavian menace.

Typhoon Yoiul Festival YC121 SKIN
The annual Yoiul Festival celebrates the closing of one year and the start of another in New Eden's universal calendar, as adopted by all the empires 121 years ago at the Yoiul Conference. CONCORD has long sponsored and celebrated the Yoiul Festival and over time it has been adopted and marked as a holiday across the four empires. It is particularly significant for those who make their living in space, whether aboard a spaceship or the many space installations of New Eden.
