In the world of EVE Online live five major races: Amarr, Caldari, Gallente, Minmatar and Jove. All these races are of human origin, their ancestors were in this part of the universe passed through a natural wormhole thousands of years ago. After the collapse of the wormhole most of the first settlements died, but some were able to survive. Today's races are the heirs of those scattered colonies. Also, there are three others: Pirats, Sleepers and ORE. About them, little is known.
