Courage – Gryffindors stand up and take action in the face of danger or a challenge to their moral code or beliefs. They aren’t afraid to break the rules to help someone in need.

Daring – they are willing to take risks and explore the road less travelled; they are pioneers in their fields and do not back down, even when failure is eminent. They are sometimes perceived as reckless and tend to view the world in terms of the present, not future outcomes.

Chivalry - Though Gryffindors aren't afraid to break rules made by others, they have strong internal codes and values that they uphold to maintain their integrity and honor.
