Reikoku (Player corporation)
Corporation was formed in 2003 by a pod pilot called Ki'li. Originally, the corporation was called Infinite Pain, but later on the name was changes to Reikoku. Reikoku means Relentless in Japanese. (Ref. 1 )(Ref. 2 )
Only a month after Ki'li founded the corp she decided to step down and handed leader ship to DB Preacher. (Ref. 3 )
The Great Northern War started when Reikoku was the first to declare war against Phoenix Alliance on May 28, 2004. Evolution promised to continue their war against PA and after that many other corps joined the war effort against PA.
During the war EVOL, m0o and RKK worked tightly together and decided to form a loose agreement to join forces whenever an enemy blob was a threat. This agreement formed the alliance called C.C.P. which stood for Cookies, Cake and Pie. According to DB Preacher the joke behind the name was, "m0o would be stealing all your cookies while Evolution would be taking your cake and RKK would be coming in from behind to have all your pie."
Eventually, CCP decided that they didn't like the connotations of the alliance's name and the group was asked to change it. So BoB was suggested as the alliance name. At first the letters had no meaning, but players over time began assigning the name Band of Brothers to the initials BoB. It was formed with ATUK Evol, m0o and RKK as founding members. (Ref. 4 ). Reikoku stayed with BoB until its sudden dissolution on February 5, 2009, and joined KenZoku alliance the day after.
On 27 June 2009 RKK announced its departure from 0.0 space and KenZoku in order to join Faction Warfare. The full text of CEO Dian's announcement can be seen here.
The foray into Faction Warfare proved unpopular with the membership and RKK reentered 0.0 space with the newly formed iT Alliance to continue operations in Delve and Fountain which had all but been deserted by the conquering Goonswarm, this wasn't to last forever as internal politics within that alliance caused its eventual breakup, combined with a renewed attack by TEST and Goonswarm saw RKK relocate to Stain_(Region).
RKK quickly joined Cascade Imminent for a short time before retiring to the Reblier area to cause some mayhem before the corp was eventually all but mothballed with very little user activity.
In May 2012 the corp was once again re-rolled under the CEOship of the now returned Galavet where empire operations have been taking place primarily under the new wardec assistance system against such entities as Goonswarm and TEST to varying degrees of success.
Shortly after joining up with 'The Retirement Club' [401K] with corp numbers swelled by the folding in of Tribal Souls the corp saw itself in the 'Top 20' killboard entries in October 2012 whilst back in the north assisting NC.
