Weakness

Taming the beast

The troops were scum.  Back home, half of them would have been hanged.  Given the option, they chose serving in the army.  War gave their natures free rein.  Spoils of war kept them content.  A few captive whores on the way ..  kept them out of mischief.

By sheer weight of numbers Tiradates had crushed these goat-shaggers.  But he had no doubts  ..  Scum of the earth.  Brutes.  Sadistic thugs.  And hardly reliable.

Could he trust them to keep on at this one-time prince?
