Lieutenant Rosa Morales, the Combat Medic, is a ranged support hero from the StarCraft universe.[1] Lt. Morales joined the United Earth Directorate (UED) to make a difference and protect her family. Over a very long and storied career, she has distinguished herself as a peerless medic, able to keep her patients alive and in the fight long after anyone else would have gone down. Lt. Morales is a veteran of the Brood War, and even the destruction of the UED Expeditionary Fleet didn’t slow her down. In the Nexus, she does what she does best: heal her teammates, support her allies, and make a difference.[2]

Lieutenant Morales is a dedicated support that heals a single ally near her. She shields allies and knocks back enemies.[3] She can use a Medivac Dropship to reposition herself and her allies across the battlefield.[4]

Background[edit | edit source]

StarCraft This section concerns content exclusive to the StarCraft universe.

The Medics of the United Earth Directorate follow a time-honored tradition of selflessly marching into combat zones to aid their injured brethren. These fearless women, aided only by protective shielding, are highly skilled healers capable of restoring the health and vitality of wounded soldiers. While expendable, the massive losses of Terran marines during the Great War began to become cost prohibitive. The medic's use of chemical modifiers has greatly enhanced the survival rate of UED forces, lengthening the expected battlefield life expectancy to over nine seconds.[5]

During the Guild Wars, the Terran Confederacy experimented with adding medics to front-line infantry units. By the Great War, Confederate medics mostly remained at bases to care for wounded soldiers. Raynor's Raiders medics operated on the front lines, at least on some occasions. The Terran Dominion still maintains a combat medic program, as medivac dropships are expensive to deploy.[6]

Despite their armor and arm-mounted shields, medics are vulnerable on the battlefield. Generally, their only armament is the A-13 flash grenade launcher, which is used to provide illumination and blind enemy targets.[6]
