If his impersonation is revealed, he may be killed by Duke Michael. Rudolf Rassendyll is also brave to ride alone in the Old Town although he knows that the King is disliked by the people of Old Town. Furthermore, Rudolf Rassendlyll displays that he is brave to rescue the King. When he arrives at Zenda Castle, Detchard is about to kill the King but he fights Detchard bravely and kills him.
