In "The Lady or The Tiger" the courtier is said to be "brave above everyone in the kingdom," but the only proof we have of that is when he walks into the arena to face the consequences for his impulsive relationship with a "higher-born" princess. This impulsiveness also displays his defiant behavior toward the King. 

The characteristic which most defines the courtier is loyalty.  He is so trusting and so loyal to the princess that he puts his life in her hands.  He looks to her to save his life by telling him which door to choose.  He believes that the princess will tell him the door with the lady behind it and steer him away from certain death from the tiger.
