The expansionist, military regime from Stralheim that destroyed the city of Freemark when they attempted to control the Cenotaph. While their technological advances are noteworthy, their methods have shown little regard for life or individuality.
The Dominion is based in a kingdom located to the north of Fort Tarsis. It is lead by a mysterious individual known as The Monitor. The Dominion believe the way to survival is "peace through force," and to keep people on a short leash in terms of freedom. While the Monitor directs the Dominion for what he believes to be the greater good, this means that the Dominion is willing to carry out heinous acts in pursuit of its goals.
The Dominion is an ancient enemy of the Freelancers, whom they are philosophically opposed to. They have always been a threat to Fort Tarsis, and in the present day, they remain in conflict with the Freelancers. Like the Freelancers, the Dominion has access to Javelins.
Notably, they designed the Storm Javelin, though it later fell into the hands of the Freelancers.
The Dominion is attempting to use the Anthem of Creation as a weapon in order to establish their rule over the world. To achieve this they seek to retrieve Shaper relics. The Freelancers moved to stop them, as the Dominion's actions were putting everyone at risk.
The Dominion are the antagonists in the core campaign of Anthem, and are one of the game's four enemy factions.
