Your life is who you protect. This is the law of mercenaries.
Following that, Dieck is a mercenary group captain. He worries about his subordinates as much as his own life.
Dieck’s impression of Roy was the he was “too young.” At first he thought Roy would run away if push came to shove; but as they continued to fight, he noticed Roy’s aspirations. Dieck continued in the mercenary business after the war settled, and wondered if he would ever meet an employer like Roy again.
