You start with 1 of these, based on your origin (hence the name) and starting zone. For example, characters with a Magic Origin starting in Atlas Park will always get Azuria as their first contact.
There are usually multiple Origin Contacts for each Origin for every 5 level range. For example, Laurence Mansfield, Paco Sanchez, and Genevieve Sanders are all Magic Origin Contacts for levels 5-9. You can only have 1 Contact in a given Origin and level range, so you will only get one of the above.
You only get 1 Origin Contact in the 1-4 level range, but you will get 5 (one from each origin) after that, until level 40.
Origin Contacts will introduce you to another in the same level range when you reach the Colleague relationship level, if you don't already have a full set. They will introduce you to the next level range up Origin Contacts when you leave their level range, or one level earlier if you're at the Confidant relationship level. They will introduce you to a contact of the same Origin. For example, Azuria might introduce you to Laurence Mansfield at level 4 if you're at the Confidant level, but she'll do it at 5 or higher regardless.
After you do a single mission for Laurence Mansfield and reach the Colleague level, he will introduce you to a level 5-9 non-Magic Origin Contact. You can do a single mission for that new contact and be introduced to yet another. Continue and you'll have all 5 Origin Contacts for level 5-9.
If you get them up to Confidant, they'll all introduce you to new level 10-15 contacts at level 9. Otherwise they'll wait till 10.
One final example for Origin Contacts. If you talk to Azuria for the first time at level 30, she'll introduce you to a level 5-9 Magic Origin Contact. Talk to them and you'll be introduced to a level 10-14 Magic Origin Contact. Repeat till you get a level 30-34 Magic Origin Contact. You can then do missions for them and get introduced to another level 30-34 Origin Contact, and repeat to collect the whole set.
These are similar to Origin Contacts, but they aren't really Origin Contacts. An Origin Contact will introduce an extra contact of the same level range when you reach Colleague Level. These contacts stock enhancements of all origins.
These are contacts that have special stores. They sell level 30 and 35 SOs. They will only sell to characters who have completed a single mission for them, and they will only offer the mission to level 30+ characters. There's also Ghost Falcon who sells 40, 45, and 50 SOs, and will only offer his mission to level 40 chars. Store Contacts will only show up on your Contact list while you're doing their mission.
These contacts replace the starting origin contact for both epic arhitypes; Warshades and Peacebringers. They will also give out architype specific story arcs every five levels, starting from level 5, all the way up to level 50. Shadowstar is the Warshade contact. Sunstorm is the Peacebringer contact.
Task Force Contacts
These Contacts were added for the missions in new zones. They are introduced by missions at the appropriate level. For example, the first level 5-9 mission you will likely get is to visit Lt. David Wincott in the Hollows. However, you can just talk to him, Stephanie Peebles on Striga Isle, Gordon Bower in Croatoa or General Hammond in Firebase Zulu, and they will appear in your contact list and be available.

New Zone Contacts follow a strict line of introductions. For example, Lt. David Wincott will introduce you to Flux, who will introduce you to Julius the Troll, who will introduce you to Talshak the Mystic. You will only get these introductions after finishing all of their missions, or by out levelling them.
