Noir. (Player corporation)
Initial Conception & First Steps
Noir. was founded in January 17th, 2008 by CEO Alekseyev Karrde following a split from his previous mercenary corporation (who had decided to go outlaw). Having had a taste of the mercenary life Alekseyev set forth to build a corporation which offered small gang warfare and, in the mercenary spirit, paid it's pilots for their performance. Combining his previous experience of running corporations, and his experiences as a mercenary pilot, Alekseyev founded Noir. - becoming one of (if not the only) corporation with a pilot orientated pay structure recruiting at that time.
As a one man corporation, Noir. performed well on its first few contracts. Recruitment was initially slow due to the newness of the corporation and the competition from other start up mercenaries. However, contracts were aggressively pursued, leading to Noir. receiving a high profile contract against Exa Nation. This campaign saw Noir. put up fleets comparable to or even better than those of the famed R.E.P.O mercenary corporation, which had also declared war on Exa Nation shortly after Noir. Since then, Noir. has taken on a gruelling contract schedule and shown extreme tenacity and valued competence, leaving behind a long string of happy and satisfied employers.

Growth and Recognition
After a period of training and R&R, Noir. befriended and joined Trinity Nova and partner corporation Dragonian Freelancers under the aegis of the Trinity Nova Alliance. At the time, these three corporations flying under one banner formed one of the most formidable mercenary forces in the EVE universe. During this period Noir.'s pilots continued to grow and sharpen their skills while remaining committed to their founding principles of a business-like approach to corporate management, merit based pay for pilots, PVP excellence, and above all complete customer satisfaction.
After some alliance membership re-shuffling during the summer of 2008, Noir. became an equal partner with Trinity Nova corporation. They continued to hone their skills and complete some extremely successful contracts. Some highlights include inflicting 13 billion ISK in damages to Elitist Cowards over the course of 10 days, and escorting the largest known shipment of drugs and illegal goods in the history of EVE, with an estimated value of 18 billion ISK).
TNT Alliance Disbands
On October 23rd, 2008 Noir., left Trinity Nova alliance as it's executor corporation, Trinity Nova, retired from active service in the mercenary world. Noir. Still continues to carry on the traditions of TNT's excellence in service and PVP skill. Noir. is now forging its own brand in the mercenary world and continues to make its own destiny within the world of EVE.
The following day, October 24th, 2008 Noir. was contracted against the alliance that everyone, at the time, was talking about – G00DFELLAS. The G00DFELLAS (commonly known as Gods) had taken over the Deklein region of 0.0 at the same time as Band of Brothers' MAX campaign was highly active in the area. Twice, Noir. was to be called upon to engage G00DFELLAS and their allies, both times achieving excellent efficiency (72% during the 2008-10-24 to 2008-11-14 campaign and 83% during the 2008-11-19 to 2008-11-26 campaign) and an excellent employer review [#1].
Noir. continues to push forward and strives for ultimate PVP excellence and take some high profile contracts against well known EVE entities. Noir. comes highly recommended by their previous employers, and since the disbanding of Trinity Nova alliance, are widely recognised as one of the best, if not the best, mercenary unit currently operating in the EVE universe today.
