The biggest problem with working with mortals was their need to lord their power over others. Immortals, both good and evil, tended to be above such things. Sure, they used mortal surrogates to perform tasks, but it was generally out of necessity rather than any need to show how superior they were. Haden had seen powerful men fall time and time again because they had depended on the skills of lesser men when they should have been depending on themselves. In that regard, Albert was no exception, but he hoped to curb the impact of the lesser men he was forced to work with.
