Cuira├ęcen is not a model for a leader of men, this god represents
impetuousness, disregard of calculation and reliance on the god's blessing.
The Stomlord Seerbrand desires to attack Kiergard, teaching that the armies
of the Gorgon are no match for the might of an army blessed by Kirche. The
Guardians of Mhoried think they are the rock that will breal the Gorgon's
armies. This is an outlook that teaches us that reason must be cast aside
and faith in victory held close. Recklessness in battle is a hallmark of
Cuira├ęcen's followers.

Cuira├ęcen represents battle more than war, and battle is fickle. Win today,
lose tomorrow. A commander who is devoted to Cuira├ęcen will be bold in
battle, valorous, and lead from the front, but that is really only a morale
booster (not unimporant, but something less than the whole ball of wax).
Recall the Connetable de la France, the duc d'Orleans, and the Dauphine in
Kenneth Branaugh's Henry V. They are very much like commanders in the
Cuira├ęcen style. However during the battle we hear them lament, "if only
order could be brought to our troops we should smother them with our numbers
alone." Yet they cannot bring the neccesary order about. [Hint: it doesn't
happen by itself.] And so they lose the battle. We'll grant that Henry had
Battlewise, and they his troops were as blessed as those of the French, but
looking at the role of the commanders, their conduct did nothing to prevent
the kind of catastrophic defeat that France suffered at Agincourt. So it is
with the enfants de la glorie.
