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 diversified and on occasion, unruly world. 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 returned to slavery once more.
Pros and Cons
Rank and File: Any player character who is enlisted in the marines can start at any rank up to Captain, though they may be asked to provide proper In character reasoning for why they would hold such a rank.
Ferry Free: Instead of the ferry service, player marines will simply travel with marine vessels, under the guise of being temporarily transferred to a new area. As a result, marines do not not have to pay for their version of ferry based travel.
Obeying Superiors: Though most player marines will have the freedom to sail where they wish, they are still part of a military group. Should an order go out, a marine will have to obey any order given or risk receiving consequences for their insubordination.
Stationary Support: Due to the prevalence of marines, more can be called in at any time as back up. Though depending the presence of a marine base in the area, this will take some time.
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, marines may even have no jurisdiction, making it a risk to go there in uniform.
Money Spent: Despite being a marine, your character will earn money the same as any other character. They will also have to spend money the same as any character. This is to prevent unfair monetary advantages to a specific faction.
