- Bravery - Those who knew the candidate and/or served with them were interviewed by the PSC. The service record of the candidate was subsequently checked for notable acts of selflessness and bravery.
- Conduct - The candidate's service record was again checked for behaviour. The candidate's service record had to contain minimal, preferably no, records of misconduct. Misconduct, according to the PSC Thesis, "unnecessary, unwarranted, and/or unauthorised violence against other members of the candidate's crew/team; inhumane treatment of Prisoners of War; endangerment of the crew/team; unjustified and/or insufficiently explained insubordination to the commanding officer; etc."
- Honour - The cause of death of the candidate could not be suicide, as it was considered dishonourable. However, exceptions included self-sacrifice, an example being Koriana Colpa, who flew her airship into a Government communications array in an attempt to disrupt communication between enemy troops and their commanders. This sacrifice ultimately led to the defeat of the Government forces, and as such Colpa's behaviour was not considered dishonourable.
