Cowardice

Cowardice -- in general terms, is the perceived failure to demonstrate sufficient robustness in the face of a challenging situation. The term describes a personality trait which is typically viewed as a negative characteristic and has been generally frowned upon (see norms) within most, if not all global cultures, while courage, typically viewed as its direct opposite, is generally rewarded and encouraged.

Cowards are usually seen to have avoided or refused to engage in a confrontation or struggle which has been deemed good or righteous by the wider culture in which they live. On a more mundane level, the label may be applied to those who are regarded as too frightened or overwhelmed to defend their rights or those of others from aggressors in their lives.

Nevertheless, some people choose to spread rumours rather than facing the situation and the maker of the whole situation.

And some rather sprut stories of how brave they are or they're going to be but still, fail to face the challenger.

Needless to say, when a person run away from a battle, he will be punished.
