Commander Glen sacrifices his own life to save all of his knights, and he taught his subordinates that the captain is always last to abandon ship. Even Griffith asks us to spare his men, accepting his own fate if you choose to behead him. And Admiral Raja bursts into tears when Barham Luger dies, saying that dying before your tutor is the worst sin a student can commit. Then we have Rowd, who has been in a position of respect and authority, training boys into warriors, and he allows them to be wiped out.
And as others have said, the worst thing is that he shows no remorse. They could have written Rowd to redeem himself by feeling such great regret for his actions that he attacks Luca himself and dies in the attempt, but nope. Rowd just carries on feeling resentment towards Jowy (one of his only surviving subordinates) for rising up through the ranks faster than him. And he just disappears halfway through the game. We don't even get a chance to make Rowd face up to his crimes.

Like, not even think about it.

And Marlowe is not a scumbag who betrays people that trust him.
And its not surprising if a general requests execution. A general's duty is to fight for his homeland and his lord, and if he fails, then he doesn't want to live with the disgrace of failing at his duty. Milich wants desperately to help the Emperor realize that he's being tricked by his love for an evil sorceress, but I believe he does accept his fate if you choose to execute him.
