Until the Sea takes me, let it be so."

II. Protect the Homeland

The first priority of any Marine is the protection and preservation of Kul Tiras and the life of its citizens. We serve them and their lives give us meaning. If Kul Tiras falls, then there is nothing left for us to live for. For Kul Tiras!

III. Serve with Honor

Never let your actions be something that would stain the record of the Marines. The citizens are proud of the Marines and we should give them no reason to lose their faith in us. Let the Holy Light guide you, and may the Tides forever set you on the righteous path.

IV. No Marine is Left Behind

Whether alive or in a flag draped casket, everyone comes home to Kul Tiras and the seas that are at the heart of who we are. From the mostly unseen supplier to the heroic warrior, every Marine's life is weighed equally.

V. Always Be Prepared

The Marines are stationed on ships because the speed at which the Kul Tiras fleet can respond, Marines can be shipped out at a moments notice - always be ready for deployment and to enter action should Orders require you to do so.

VI. Love the Sea

Kul Tiras can thank the sea for the great prosperity it has enjoyed over the ages. We receive many of our resources from it and it also serves as a natural defense. Never take the sea for granted and also be aware that it also holds many perilous dangers in its depths.

VII. Always Follow Orders

The ability to accomplish our goals relies on our ability to execute orders without hesitation. No matter what your gut feeling is, carry out your orders with enthusiasm and determination. If the orders turn out to be wrong, the officer in charge who issued the orders will be the one to take responsibility.
The Marines must function with the unflinching reliability of a well oiled dwarven machine and the precision of a gnomish pocket watch. 

The only acceptable time to ignore this code is if it violates the first code.
