That was touching. I like seeing the softer side of Redjac, and of the fact that Kirok means so much to her, regardless of his life-altering injury, that she'd rather just have him remain with her, no matter his physical state.

Well, she cares/cared about him. So of course she feels this way.
As for why they prefer martyrdom to a disabled or weakened life, it's machismo ratched up to 11 and beyond. But there are Klingons who do different things. They have doctors and engineers and the like. Surely they have less of a death ethic than the warrior caste does.
