Because Charlie IS a carnymancer, and he could well have cast something like "For this turn, all hits by the enemy will deal maximum damage" just to turn archons into money and/or bankrupt Homekey for some other side's (Numloch?) benefit.
Just to put things into perspective, Charlie, at the time of the Battle of Spacerock was offering over 9,000 schmuckers for the safe release of captured archons. Jillian got about 8,500 schmuckers for razing Diecast, a level-2 city. Faq acquired almost 20,000 schmuckers for sacking Kona, a level 3, and over 40,000 for Progrock, another level 3. Now, the penalty Homekey would pay for croaking an archon is probably higher than the 1,000 schmuckers Charlie would pay for croaking a Homekey stabber, but how much more, and would it be worth it to Charlie? He is willing to pay a significant amount to keep each one safe. How much would it take for him to willingly sacrifice them? Also, I doubt Charlie would be able to receive more in penalties than Homekey possesses in its treasury. Charlie probably is aware that Homekey is a poor side. Once their treasury is empty, Charlie would be sacrificing archons for no return.

What can I say? I'm a misanthrope. Anything to hasten the apocalypse, right?
As for Creen leading a charge, I guess I could see it happening. After all, in his mind, if someone as ill-equipped to lead as Chief Peck is faring well leading the battle, how much better would the battle be progressing if a royal such as himself took the fore? His arrogance could very well overcome his discretion, leading to him either putting himself into a precarious situation or throwing a wrench into the works by disrupting the performance. I hadn't considered it, but it would definitely work. It certainly would open up some dramatic possibilities. Thanks for pointing out the possibility.
