Donald Oddy :
Disobedience of an order from an incompetent superior usually works well. If she's only a tetrach after 20+ years she'll have worked up from the ranks rather than starting as an officer. She had the choice between leader her troops to disaster or disobeying a direct order. What's more she was later proved right.
/// Think about Clint Eastwood's character in "Kelly's Heroes", or some characters from "the Dirty Dozen".
(going into subjective mode) But keep in mind she's only a lowly pelandan. Pelandans are no good for warfare, every trooper and officer in the Red Army knows that. There hasn't been a pelandan military hero for a while - for good reason ! Perhaps the other local cultures consider the pelandans like prejudiced (I insist : this is a stereotype) northern europeans see italians : nice fellows, beautiful cities but no good in matters of war, despite a Glorious Past (Daxdarius = Caesar) ?
