EVE API EVE Character Info

Description

The Character Info API (without a supplied API key) will return the same info on a character as the EVE client would show. With a limited API key it will add total skill points as well as the current ship you are in and its name. When a full API key is supplied, you account balance and your last known location will also be added to the response.
