"Terran marines are the toughest frag magnets in the galaxy. But when they're in trouble, guess who they call? Winning a battle is more than just shooting enemy soldiers. It's about saving your own. I protect every member of my squad with my life. Sometimes I think I'm the only one holding them together. Who am I? I'm Lieutenant Morales. I'm your medic."

- Lt. Rosa Morales(src)

The Brood War[edit | edit source]

The following section contains information from Heroes of the Storm that is ambiguously canonical.

Lieutenant Morales

A native of Earth,[2] Lt. Morales joined the United Earth Directorate to make a difference and protect her family. Over a very long and storied career, she distinguished herself as a peerless medic, able to keep her patients alive and in the fight long after anyone else would have gone down.[5] She was equipped with experimental gear as per her excellent service record.[2]

Morales was dispatched to the Koprulu sector as part of the UED Expeditionary Fleet. She was one of the first UED officers to be deployed in the conflict, and was one of the medics who administered neurostims to the Second Overmind.[2] She saw the conflict to its end, and survived the fleet's destruction.[5]

"Lieutenant Morales. I could call you a traitor but...aren't we all?"

Sometime after the fall of the UED Expeditionary Fleet, Morales joined the Terran Dominion, and retained her rank as lieutenant in the Dominion Navy Medical Corps. During the End War, she was assigned to stem a zerg infestation on a fringe Dominion world in the settlement of Chazington. However, the potency of the infestation made evacuation impossible, so she enlisted the aid of two allied commanders to aid her.[6]

Game Unit[edit | edit source]

"To good marines, the only thing more important than the rifle in their hand is the medic at their back. As one of the first officers deployed during the United Earth Directorate's invasion of the Koprulu sector, Lt. Rosa Morales is the best of the best."

Morales on the battlefield

Morales greatly misses her home. Even the bugs, as they were so much smaller back there. She hates needles, but is quite happy to stick them into her patients. She enjoys using the A-13 grenade launcher.[2] Morales is noble, well put together, and has a vested interest in helping her allies.[8] Morales is dedicated to saving lives on the battlefield and making the universe a better place. She takes her work seriously, but that doesn't stop her from making sarcastic remarks to defuse tense situations.[9]
