Fidelas Constans (Player alliance)
The Fidelas Constans Alliance, above all else, values an atmosphere of active participation, co-operation, and community to achieve its common goal. To become the best.
We promote collaboration and camaraderie amongst our pilots. We are a PVP null-sec alliance, and prefer all our members to live in null. Industrialists need to be combat capable as well, there should never be an exception to combat readiness.
We are NBSI
Our objective is to create a sustainable and coordinated military presence in Branch to stand ready to assist our allies and the overall CFC Coalition. We accomplish this through coordinated regional defense with other Branch residents to keep our spacelanes clear. A robust scouting network for early warning of GFs and routine deployments to assist unworthy alliances in their desire to failcascade.
Fidelas Constans was formed by corporations already in the Providence area, at the beginning of 111 EST (2009), who shared the same goals, and who were looking for a more active environment than their previous alliances. In a relatively short time, FCON established itself as a competent force in the Providence area, taking an active part in patrolling the main thoroughfares, and forming defense fleets against enemy incursions into the Providence and Catch regions, in close collaboration with local Holders and resident alliances.
Since its inception, FCON had grown substantially, adding new pilots and capabilities, and more than tripling its membership while in Providence . While FCON's focus has been military and policing duties, FCON had been also steadily building an industrial and logistics infrastructure to support these activities, including capital ship manufacturing.
Mid 111 EST (summer 2009) saw a series of wars being declared by various red alliances, and corporations, most notably Ushra’Khan, during which FCON acquitted itself well.
Like all good times, this came to an end with the gathering of the former Southern Coalition forces and the invasion of Providence . Early YC 112 (Jan/Feb 2010) FCON participated in the defense of Providence against the combined former Southern Coalition forces. Despite strong resistance to the attacks including a valiant fight against the combined might of -A- and Atlas in their home system, 9-F0B, FCON could simply not stand alone against an enemy force five times its size and its first and only outpost was lost. But FCON was not done and continued to fight against the Southern Coalition, staging a guerrilla warfare campaign against the aggressors and their installed pets.
Several months had gone by while FCON searched for a new home to establish itself. Although hunting the weak alliances in Providence provided entertainment, it was not a sustainable position for an alliance with its focus on grand achievements. Talks began with the former Northern Coalition around the first quarter of YC 112 and FCON relocated to Placid to begin its new invasion into red held territory in Pure Blind. Once again FCON was tested as it battled to establish itself in a defensible system. This time the hostiles were the combined forces of Ev0ke, Ewoks, Atlas and former IT & friends alliances. FCON played a timezone war against ev0ke and quickly taught them that FCON was no pushover alliance.
Not a stranger to living in less than “ideal” space and always craving action and PVP, FCON quickly stepped up to the plate and began hitting back hard at the hostile invaders.
Skaarl, one of the former FC stars in FCON, pioneered an all bomber force with Manks Girl, the former Lead FC, against red starbases which were mostly fit against a capital force and had next to no defense against small ships. Ev0ke and their pets, ewoks, while mostly skilled in capital and super capital blobs, where mostly ineffective when using subcaps which gave FCON the advantage, engagement after engagement. Soon the red tide was pushed back and FCON was once again established in nullsec and able to grow.
FCON grew substantially in it's new home, working hard to support it's allies, but still aiming for grander things in Eve.
Mid 112 EST (Aug 2010), the founding CEO, Lupus Aurelius, retired. Though a process for election of a new Senior Consul had been put in place, and a transition team formed for the interregnum, the alliance leadership was taken over in a unilateral action by one of the members of the transition team. Initially accepted by the membership, it became evident over time that improprieties and abuse of office had occured.
In Feb. 113 EST (2011), this had become so endemic that the founding CEO transfered shares still in his possession to one of the members of the transition team that was CEO of one of the founding corporations, Chokta, so to bring FCON back on course to it's founding ideals. Since that time, FCON has improved significantly, and in April 113 EST (2011) became a full member of the Northern Coalition.
Soon thereafter DRF, Evoke, Pandemic Legion and a host of friends crashed into the NC, mostly brought on by the old Morsis Mihi Alliance, then "executors" of the NC attempting to overextend the NC into the Drone Regions. Upon the collapse of MM, one such alliance that thought themselves in the safest of positions, with many barriers to keep the enemy at bay, fail-cascaded.
FCON although considered a "Full" member of the NC, quickly discovered it was just a sham to be forced to provide ships and defense for the failcascading MM. FCON pulled back to PB from the frontlines and adjusted its alignment to support the Clusterfuct Coalition (CFC) being disgusted with the former NC’s attitude of apathy toward defense of their home space. The Battle for VFK brought about a turning point in the war. FCON which had been in a constant state of battle for months, put forth one final push along with the rest of the CFC to defend the capital of their new allies. The CFC stayed true to their word in aiding those that stood up to the forces against them, and at the end of this invasion Fidelas Constans was rewarded for their efforts.
In the Fall of YC 113 (2011) FCON joined an invasion of Delve and Querious, initially as a lone deployment, it quickly turned into a full CFC deployment. A longstanding enemy of FCON, Atlas Alliance, was currently residing in Querious and several remnants of the old NC were attempting to hold Delve. FCON, given a chance to finally crush the first enemy it knew, jumped at the chance to burn Querous to the ground while the CFC focused on Delve.
Nickator, the Skymarshal of FCON, pioneered a new combat tengu fleet and used it to great success in the deployment. Atlas watched helplessly as its fleets were bested time and again by FCON's finest pilots. Eventually morale was so low in Atlas that it had to call on it's allies to wage it's battles. The scent of a dying alliance drove FCON's pilots into a feeding frenzy and former Atlas assets and moons were turned over to FCON corps. System after system fell and Atlas shed members. FCON had decimated its once, former enemy. Never forgetting the day when Atlas attempted to lord over them in Providence, justice and payback had finally come.
Although that one chapter had come to a close, winter was coming, and with it a nerfing of supercaps, which up to that time provided a deterrent against the CFC. Sights were set on Branch and FCON, which had always desired a more fertile territory, exploded into Branch, spearheading the invasion at the start of January YC 114 EST (2012) Meeting little to no resistance, Branch fell in record time.
Footage of this campaign is available in the documentary located here: 
FCON quickly grew in its new home, adding on several PVP corporations. But the purge was not done, Tenal still remained and needed to be liberated from Raiden aggression. FCON once again joined the ranks of the CFC and Tenal fell with again very minimal resistance.
After that purge, an uneasy peace existed between the CFC and NC(dot), in time a new capitalist cartel formed with the intention of maximizing income for the CFC. OTEC. As a member of OTEC, being an alliance holding technetium moons, FCON helped to spike the price upwards of 200k per unit. This bumpercrop helped to quickly grow FCON's assets and expand it's abilities. But NC(dot) being misguided and slightly mentally handicapped, couldn't remain a member of OTEC. On several occasions they flagrantly violated the treaty which resulted in a dissolving of the pact and the latest target of the CFC, Tribute.
FCON established a record for being one of the longest surviving alliances in Pure Blind, surviving a record of four major invasions meant to remove it. It then grew into Branch and helped to spearhead two major offenses, the taking of Branch and currently the taking of Tribute. Coming from a small local defense force in Providence, FCON is now the envy of several alliances. Where FCON once had several enemies much larger than itself, they are now the dust beneath the heels of FCON's pilots.
As the Workhorse of the CFC, FCON soldiers on, leaving it's legacy and crafting its future, amongst the stars.
• Legio V Fidelus (Executor)
FCON does not support, nor oppose, the various political factions, i.e.- Gallente, Caldari, Amarr, and Minmatar. FCON welcomes all peoples to their ranks, and holds that any form of discrimination based on race is unacceptable, that a person is judged based on their actions, faith, honor, and integrity. That being said, FCON also believes in “..render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s…”, and abides by the social and political policies of the space they operate in. As stated above, we do not involve ourselves in the politics of other entities, but work to achieve an environment for our alliance that allows for freedom of our members to persue their own goals.
FCON operates as a republican oligarchy. Each member corporation’s representative has the right, and duty, to represent their corporation in the FCON administrative bodies. Each member corporation has a vote in establishing alliance goal, objectives, and operating parameters. Alliance officers exercise executive decision making to those established goals.
