1. Most Sarghress enlisted aren't stupid. The risk/reward calculation against insubordination is pretty simple - a certain death assault mission really isn't all that bad...

2. As one progresses up the chain of command, the harsh reality of one's youth as a helpless peasant is stacked against growing centuries of success, power, and arrogance. The result is that the upper brass (with a few exceptions) have only shadowy caricatures of their lowly roots that direct their contempt.

Ummm, given that any given drow has the pontential to be a low to mid grade superhero, is the product of a seriously dysfunctional family, within the context of a seriously dysfunctional society, and living in a hyper-Malthusian dystopia, sanity and common sense is bound to be in short supply.

Regardless of franchise, there is always this strange love for mooks, especially punch clock ones that act like normal people.

Of course, people always love an underdog.
