Interesting how one is acceptable but the other is not.
One of them has a powerful organisaion behind him, is considered "loyal" (as far as you can use the term on any DE), is not constantly using narcotics, is experienced in warfare, is quite intelligent AND is an Eldar.
The other one is considered alien scum and has a shanty in Sec Maegra and is only trusted as a bodyguard because the Archon deems him too stupid to betray him.
Can you spot the difference?

Actually only one point.
Your first point.
I have read a lot of books on DE (including some where they where just antagonists) and every codex since their first appearance.
There is no "organised military of the Dark Eldar". This does not exist.
Its not that they "cant see through a raid without the Archon,...". Its more that they thin "hmm... if I kill my mates and deliver the Slaves to the Kabal of the sunken Eye I would get way more reward out of it... deal!"
They are fully capable of doing the raid. But its a big gamble if they return to your Archon after the raid. They are selfish to the core. There is NO loyality at all. Society "works" because of oppression, blackmail, bribe and threats. EVERYBODY wants to climb the ladder. You have Archon regularly killing off their most successful and "loyal" lieutenants because they could pose a threat sometime in the future. Archon Nyos Yllitian had a huge problem finding a good successor because he previously killed all promising and aspiring family members.
