Actually, if one doesn't like the stigmata of the traditional "mercenary" or "soldier of fortune" there are other examples which one can draw from; situations where for whatever reason the kingdom/government was unwilling to participate in a particular important conflict ... and other groups stepped in to fill the void.True, some of these groups had the tacit backing of important folks, but so do we in Jaina and Rhonin.The first that should be obvious, especially with the backing of a recent blockbuster film - the Spartan contribution to the Battle of Thermopylae.A second one is the Lafayette Escadrille, the "American" World War I Squadron formed before America's entrance into the war.A third, keeping in the aeronautical vein, is the 1st American Volunteer Group, better known as "The Flying Tigers" ...Even in our own world, "mercenary" doesn't always mean "mercenary" :)
