Golem Biosecurity Responders SKIN
CONCORD Biosecurity Responders are available to be dispatched on emergency call to any space stations, orbital infrastructure or other space-industrial locations in response to disease and pathogen outbreaks of all kinds. The challenges of maintaining biosecurity against infectious pathogens and other disease vectors in space-based infrastructure are multiplied by the cosmopolition and highly-interconnected nature of New Eden's space industry and trade networks. This long-recognised problem was for many decades dealt with by the empires, nations and corporations of New Eden in a rather piecemeal fashion, with disputes over jurisdiction and differing standards commonly arising. Following the Kyonoke Crisis of YC119, and the passage of the interstellar "Hope for All Act", CONCORD established Biosecurity Response Teams, and began to build up its capacity and expertise in the fields of epidemiology and disease management. To that end, CONCORD reached out to partners such as the University of Caille's Department of Epidemiology, Hedion University's School of Medicine, the Sisters of EVE, and the Society of Conscious Thought. Biosecurity Responders are a vital link in any effort to isolate and analyze infectious pathogens spreading through New Eden's space infrastructure, and crucially to prevent spread to planetary populations. Research to develop effective biosecurity methods, treatments and pathogen controls rely on the field research and data provided by the Biosecurity Reponse Teams.

Golem Caldari Union Day SKIN
The Caldari State Workers Union is the single official workers organization that operates on a pan-state basis and is affiliated to by the workers organizations of all of the "Big 8" megacorps of the Caldari State. The State Workers Union concerns itself primarily with promoting good inter-megacorp relations between workers below the executive level throughout the Caldari State. A major portion of its work involves running vacation trips for working families that wish to experience the variety of Caldari society as expressed in different megacorporations. The highlight of the calendar for many Caldari workers is the Caldari Executive Panel mandated State Workers Union Day, one of the few universally observed public holidays in the State. Promotion of the virtues of honestly earned leisure time is exemplified in a special nanocoating that celebrates Union Day, with the proceeds going to the State Workers Union Orphans Apprenticeship Fund.

Golem GalNet StreamCast Unit SKIN
The GalNet StreamCast Unit is a special program of the GalNet Association, the grouping of interstellar organizations, corporations and empire representatives that oversees the standards and protocols of the interstellar GalNet. GalNet StreamCast Unit operates ships or sponsors independent pilots to provide public access audio-visual and holographic data for use in GalNet programming. GalNet StreamCast Unit channels also host a variety of independent program-makers and work to give access and support to those citizens of New Eden wishing to broadcast using the streaming protocols of the interstellar GalNet.
Golem Ghostbird SKIN
In Caldari animistic mythology, the Ghostbirds are heralds of war sweeping down from the mountains on wings of snow flecked with the blood of those who will fall in battle. The imagery of the Ghostbird is very popular among the Caldari military and has become a special totem for pilots of all kinds of warships.

Golem Kimotoro Eskeitan Commander SKIN
Command vessels of the Kimotoro Eskeitan carry Caldari State officers with broad authority to take command of any forces operating within the Kimotoro Defense Zone. This emergency authority has been delegated directly to Kimotoro Eskeitan commanders by the Chief Executive Panel, ensuring that all corporate security forces and militia units will obey the orders of the defense zone guards. Formally called the "Kimotoro Tivaktikun Sejikiineten Eskeitan", or Kimotoro Defense Zone Executive Guard, most Caldari know the defense force of the home constellation of the State simply as the Kimotoro Eskeitan. A Caldari Navy unit that answers directly to the Chief Executive Panel, the Kimotoro Eskeitan are often seen performing ceremonial duties in their splendidly caparisoned combat vessels, such as on occasions like the Caldari State Workers Union Day. For all the decoration and pomp of their most visible appearances, the Kimotoro Eskeitan are one of the most elite forces in the Caldari State's military and form an essential component of the defensive arrangements of the Caldari home systems.
Golem 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.
Golem Matigu Seabeast SKIN
Golem Octopus Orange Flight SKIN
The Caldari Navy's 37th (Octopus) Squadron has a long and storied history stretching back to the Caldari-Gallente War that led to independence for the Caldari State. Originally a frigate squadron established during the war, the 37th is notable as a capsuleer unit within the Caldari Navy. Octopus Squadron's "Orange Flight" is an outgrowth of the older "Red Flight" after reorganization of this elite capsuleer squadron. The Orange Flight operates advanced missile cruisers in the heavy assault role, providing devastating and flexible long-range firepower to the 37th.
Golem Octopus Red Flight SKIN
The Caldari Navy's 37th (Octopus) Squadron has a long and storied history stretching back to the Caldari-Gallente War that led to independence for the Caldari State. One of the original frigate squadrons established during the war, the 37th is notable as a capsuleer unit within the Caldari Navy. Octopus Squadron's "Red Flight" later became famous as a missile strike unit using Kestrel-class frigates. In recent years, the Octopus Red Flight has been upgraded to a flight of missile cruisers and, together with the rest of the 37th, is a frontline unit of the Caldari Navy.
Golem Raata Sunset SKIN
Golem State Police SKIN
The Caldari State Police is one of the few law enforcement organizations that conducts operations across Caldari territory, working alongside Caldari Customs and the Business Tribunal Audit & Investigation Branch, known as the "Audit Tribunes". Originating as the planetary police force of Caldari Prime, during the period of Caldari membership of the Federation, the Caldari Police Guards played a key role in evacuating millions during the Caldari-Gallente War. This guaranteed the continued existence of the agency as the Caldari State Police, even in the new Caldari order of a fully corporate state. The Caldari State Police found its niche in the interstellar nature of the Caldari State and is often used by the many smaller corporations and multistellar businesses that require a law enforcement agency that can operate across megacorporate territorial lines. The bulk of the State Police's income is derived from such policing and security work, but it retains Chief Executive Panel funding and the "Big 8" oversight that comes with it. Occasionally, the megacorporations may call in the State Police to resolve some matter they wish to keep at arms length. Actual disputes between megacorps remain the almost exclusive preserve of the CBT and its Audit Tribunes.

Golem Wiyrkomi SKIN
Golem Zakura Shumyu SKIN
The concept of 'Zakura Shumyu' encapsulates an idealized existential humility of the citizenry of the Caldari State in the presence of something greater, symbolized by the wind passing through Zakura cherry blossoms. Zakura Hansei refers to the large family of ornamental cherry trees that feature heavily in Caldari State parks and executive aboriculture. The Zakura cherry trees and their blossoms have become a part of Caldari symbolism dating back to the formation of the first corporations on Caldari Prime. Cherry trees are found on the home worlds of the four major empires where growing conditions and land permits. Popular as an ornamental tree for the mass flowering of cherry blossoms that break out as warm seasons begin, there are many varieties found across New Eden. Cherry trees of the Zakura Hansei family became popular with the Caldari, particularly as the hardier varieties were able to fluorish in the more temperate regions of the notoriously cold Caldari Prime. In the Caldari State, the large and splendid Zakura Bazei variety is often a feature of corporate parks and executive class gardens. The Caldari gave the name 'Zakura' to these blossoming trees and these varieties are known by that name as far afield as the ornamental arboretums of the Amarr Empire. In a historical irony, this family of cherry trees is actually native to Gallente Prime, and the cherry was not known on Caldari Prime until it was introduced some time after first contact with the Gallente.
Golem Zento Isideko Combine SKIN
Now owned by the Sukuuvestaa megacorp, the Zento Isideko Combine represents the final fate of an old industrial concern from the early corporate era of Caldari society. Founded in the wave of corporate developments and consolidations of earlier business forms in the decades that followed first contact with the Gallente, Zento Isideko Combine was typical in its aspiration to become an interplanetary conglomerate in an era of enormous cultural and technological upheaval for the Caldari people. Led by their visionary founder Foss Kriistavaa, the Zento Isideko Combine rapidly became a leader in the construction of advanced transportation links across Caldari Prime and eventually realized the founding ambition of becoming an space-industrial powerhouse. Zento Isideko maintained its place in the upper tier of Caldari corporations for nearly 200 years, until the Third Sontogi Oskkaltiovone* of 22714 AD brought it within the sphere of a corporate grouping that would eventually become the Sukuuvestaa Corporation. After various corporate permutations over the centuries, the business is generally known as SuVee ZenIko on the stock markets. Even so, the old Zento Isideko Combine brand and livery is still used to distinguish the support fleets of the transportation construction, maintenance and security operations that the division carries out across the extensive holdings of Sukuuvestaa. (Sontogi Oskkaltiovone – loosely translated: rules-based corporate war of takeovers)
