- It might just be a case of Deliberate Values Dissonance. During the Middle Ages, there were basically no protections for noncombatants; Rape, Pillage, and Burn was standard practice for pretty much all armies, and civilian deaths were simply an expected consequence of warfare. It might make more sense to think of it in terms of Defender/Attacker instead of Good/Evil. They are mercenaries, after all.
