Thukker Tribe is one of the seven Minmatar tribes. Even though the Thukker tribe is not part of the Minmatar Republic, the two have close unofficial ties.


The Thukker tribe is one of the seven original Minmatar tribes. After the Minmatar Rebellion the Thukkers left Minmatar space and took up the nomadic lifestyles of their ancestors, only this time in space. The closest thing they've got to home is the Great Wildlands region, where they are very numerous, but the Thukkers like to be on the move, constantly going from one solar system to another in their huge caravans, trading and scavenging. Respectable citizens of EVE frown upon the Thukkers, considering them to be nothing but scoundrels and thieves. Indeed, the Thukkers often operate on the shadier side of the law, but their resourcefulness and diligence count a lot more for their success than their criminal activities.

Jormal Kehok was a noted and highly-decorated Thukker anti-pirate commander, most famous for the relief of Konora following the attempted occupation of the system by renegade Angel Cartel fighters. Kehok was later assassinated, most likely by Cartel operatives, and is considered a hero of the Thukker Tribe. Persistent conspiracy theories continue to swirl around the circumstances of his death.

The liberty of our people is solely our responsibility. Tempting as it is to foist this burden upon our well-wishers, we must never forget that the onus of our emancipation rests with us and us alone. For too long, our proud people have been subjugated to the whims of enslavers, forced to endure relentless suffering and humiliation at the hands of people whose motivations, masked though they may be by florid religious claptrap, remain as base and despicable as those of the playground bully. If ever there was a time to rise – if ever there was a time to join hands with our brothers – that time is now. At this exact junction in history we have within our grasp the means to loosen our tormentors' hold and win freedom for our kin. Opportunities are there to be taken. Brothers, we must rise.

Thukker ships

Many of the T2 Minmatar hulls are of Thukker origin. These ships are easily identified from the iconic brown-white camo pattern. The Thukker ships are well suited to the nomadic life: fast combat ships, scanning ship, fast logistic ship, black ops battleship and a jump freighter.
