* CruelAndUnusualDeath / RasputinianDeath: Frank's punishment, although well-deserved, is ''exceptionally'' brutal. [[spoiler:First, he cuts into his side [[LodgedBladeRecycling using the same knife he had just used to stab Frank]], then he follows it up by stabbing him in the chest ''thirteen times'' in quick succession, twisting the knife high up, [[SlashedThroat slashing across his throat]], and before he bleeds out, [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge repeatedly punching him in the face]] before finally finishing him off by [[EyeScream gouging his eyes out with his thumbs]].]]

* ItsAllAboutMe: His career and reputation is basically this in a nutshell. For example, when Marion James agrees with his idea to pin all the blame on Russo for the sake of the agency and America's international standing, but demands that he retire immediately afterwards for the greater good, he replies "But that hardly motivates me to make this go away.", sounding honestly confused as to why someone would act against their own self-interest. Since he's talking to someone who ''genuinely'' has a NecessarilyEvil IDidWhatIHadToDo mentality, as opposed to using it as a flimsy justification for her own selfish desires, this response just provokes her to promise that if he refuses she'll turn him in to Homeland, her own career be damned.

* LackOfEmpathy: In general, Rawlins is so uncaring towards others that he seems to forget that people ''can'' have selfless motivations, as shown during his final conversation with Marion:
--> '''Marion:''' Alright. Burn Russo, and then we're done. That's the deal; there is no place for you in my agency. We protect the agency, and then you will resign your post. Let's say it's for the greater good.
--> '''Rawlins:''' [[ItsAllAboutMe But that hardly motivates me to make this go away]].
--> '''Marion:''' Oh, I think it would. Because if you don't, I ''will'' hand you to Homeland myself and see you in prison for the rest of your life, shit on my shoes or not! You disgust me.

- He also shows little concern for the soldiers under his command, at one point writing off Frank's ([[CassandraTruth accurate]]) suspicions that their mission is an ambush. When the traumatized and wounded survivors return, Rawlins only looks at them with a bored expression and asks if they neutralized their target.
- When he sends some of Russo's operatives after Gunner and Frank in the forest, he watches through their helmet-cams and shows no emotion when they're picked off, only switching feeds to still living soldiers.
