The Marines are the World Government's military sea force, tasked with law enforcement, international security and military operations. The Marines are one of the three great powers, alongside the Shichibukai and the Yonko. They are present in all the seas around the world, as evidenced by their branch offices. The focus of their assets is on the far more dangerous Grand Line.
The duty of the Marines is to maintain a law and order throughout the world and impose the will and might of the World Government. They are therefore considered the key strategic development force in the World Government and are expected to obey its orders at will. Sometimes these orders are questionable, however they are expected to carry them out regardless of opinion.
The main purpose of the Marines remain footed in the idea of bringing justice to any criminal. They use justice as their constituted policy to manage a world that is made entirely of one ocean much easier. However, the main problem within the Marines is the approach to Justice. They are generally divided between those who support Moral Justice and those who support Absolute Justice with the latter being the code of conduct for the Marines as a central doctrine. Nevertheless, there is little worry from the higher ranked Marines as to how the Justice is carried out so long as it is, leading those who truly support absolute justice to make questionable actions in carrying out their duties
One of the most questionable parts of their "Justice" is when it comes to slavery. Despite the practice supposedly being abolished years before, it is often shown that they just look the other way. Especially when it comes to the World Nobles' slaves, where it is even seen as a crime to free said slaves even if the person is merely a child. Often they are tasked to find and retrieve the person to be a slave once again.
Pros and Cons Edit
No Players Allowed: The marines are an entirely NPC run faction. Outside of simple canon fodder on marine patrolled territories, you need permission to have marines show up in a thread.
Stationary Support: Due to the prevalence of the marines, more can be called in at any time as back up. Though it may take them some time to reach the specific area.
Lawless Regions: In areas far removed from the marine-controlled world, channels to bases or even Marine HQ are cut. Den Den Mushis will generally not reach anyone outside of other marines currently inland. In these regions, it’s safe to say the marines will not bother you here.
Marine Invasion: Moderators have the right to have marines show up in your threads if they feel your actions warrant it. A marine invasion may take up to 24 hours if they are not on the island already.
NPCs: Personal NPCs and Crewmen can not be marines. In addition, if you’d like to use marines for a personal threads, you can not give them ranks and must remain nameless fodder. If you want ranked marines for a specific purpose, you’ll need approval from a Mod.
