Obey / Alpha and relent

Question

Need a fix

Example:

Player A targets enemy Guild Guard of Player B with obey and succeeds.

Player A immediately performs the 1 AP Collier Army Sh attack action with the "obeyed" Player B´s Guardsman against Player B's Peacekeeper.

Player A  is ready to flip for attack...

May Player B choose to RELENT for a TIE?

 

Thanks in advance

     Tobi, aka Frozen Feet

Obey doesn't change who the model considers friends and enemies (small rulebook page 23). In short:

Quote

When a model’s Actions are controlled by the opponent (for instance with the Obey Action) the model does not change which models are considered friendly, its friends are still its friends.

Small rulebook page 27 has an "Attacking Friendly Models" shoutbox:

Quote

Models can target other friendly models with Actions. The effects of the Action might prohibit the usefulness of this tactic, but it can never- the-less be done.

Whenever two friendly models are engaged in an Opposed Duel, the defending friendly model may choose to lose the duel. Before any cards are flipped, the Defending model may choose to relent. When this happens, the Attacker flips as normal, and the Defender flips no cards, it is instead assumed that the Defender tied the Attacker’s final duel total, without any suits. The Defender may not declare Triggers when it relents to an Action in this way, however the Attacker may still declare Triggers.

Reads to me that player B can relent with their peacekeeper.

Relenting in that particular instance seems kind of silly even if it is allowed. The guild guard is very unlikely to get anything better than a double negative either way and that condition could be bad to have on your peacekeeper. ;)
