The Thukker Tribe is a loose confederation of nomadic fleets and transient colonies dominated by the Great Caravans that roam the space of the Great Wildlands region, rather than by the large clans more typical of other Minmatar tribes. The Council of Caravans is the Thukker equivalent of a council of clan chiefs. Lesser caravans generally acknowledge the authority of the Council and Tribal Chief, even if only nominally, but Thukker organized as more standard clans, the so-called "clanners", operate more independently than caravaners and have a well-earned reputation as renegades, pirates, and ruthless mercenaries.
The Thukker Tribe is one of the seven original Minmatar tribes. After the Minmatar Rebellion the Thukkers left Minmatar space and took up the nomadic lifestyles of their ancestors, only this time in space. The closest thing they've got to home is the Great Wildlands region, where they are very numerous, but the Thukkers like to be on the move, constantly going from one solar system to another in their huge caravans, trading and scavenging.
