F. caract[`e]re.] [1913 Webster] 1. A distinctive mark; a letter, figure, or symbol.

[1913 Webster] 10. One of the persons of a drama or novel. [1913 Webster] Note: “It would be well if character and reputation were used distinctively. In truth, character is what a person is; reputation is what he is supposed to be. Character is in himself, reputation is in the minds of others. Character is injured by temptations, and by wrongdoing; reputation by slanders, and libels. Character endures throughout defamation in every form, but perishes when there is a voluntary transgression; reputation may last through numerous transgressions, but be destroyed by a single, and even an unfounded, accusation or aspersion.” --Abbott.
