|Dominion Marine Corps|
|De facto leader|
Somewhat akin to the Squadrons of the Terran Confederacy, the DMC appears to function somewhat independently from the space-based Dominion Armada, its officers having control over their own ships. Its logo is referred to as the "Golden Eagle", and the bald eagle has also been used in DMC heraldry.
The primary color of marine armor is red.
The Dominion Marine Corps absorbed elements of the Confederate Marine Corps during the transition from the Confederacy to the Dominion. Compared to its predecessor, the Dominion force has a lower percentage of neurally resocialized individuals.
The Corps saw action during the Brood War. In the opening phase it and the rest of the armed forces were unable to check the advance of the United Earth Directorate fleet. With the aid of Raynor's Raiders, Fenix's protoss forces and Infested Kerrigan's zerg the Corps would return to liberate Korhal, only to fall victim to Kerrigan's betrayal. The Corps was reinforced by "a collection of special interest groups" for a final push against the zerg at Char. The operation was unsuccessful and marked the end of the war.
After the Brood War, the corps carried out tasks ranging from delivering supplies to patrolling colonies for potential enemies. A DMC force was responsible for the depopulation of Candore Colony, which had been harboring a group of insurgents. It also engaged the protoss and zerg on Artika.
Elements of the Dominion Marine Corps are also present at Mar Sara, acting as security for the Kel-Morian Combine mining camps as well as fighting the zerg who invaded the planet at the same time.
In 2504, with the onset of the Second Great War, the marines helped hold the line against the zerg. Eventually, alongside the Dominion Fleet, the Corps partook in an invasion of Char. Despite taking heavy casualties, the Dominion emerged victorious in the end. The war itself ended with the death of Arcturus Mengsk however.
