Miles did have use charm as his only tool. At other times he used 
shiploads of mercenaries, armed shuttles, hist authority as Lord 
Auditor, and the power of the count to make someone an un-person. There 
are people on whom charm works, there are situations where charm works, 
and there are people and situations where it is of no use.

No amount of charm from "the mutie Lord" would have moved Ma Mattulich.
