Picture your best friend. Maybe she wears glasses. Maybe he’s a great piano player. She keeps your secrets. He has two sisters. She lives at 82 Maplegrove. There are many qualities that make people unique, but which ones make up a person’s character?
There’s a difference between character and a character. In a book, play, or movie, a character is anyone with personality. It could be a person, an animal, an object come to life, or even something imaginary.
Suppose your teacher asks you to describe a favorite book character. You might start by saying that Charlie is a 12-year-old boy who lives with his father and is from Mexico.
But, more importantly, you’d have to tell who Charlie is as a person. You’d have to describe the character of this character.
In real life (and in fiction) character is a set of inner qualities. Character is revealed through words, thoughts, beliefs, decisions, and patterns of behavior. If Charlie returns a wallet to its owner without taking any money, you can say he is honest. If he turns his father’s words into funny puns, you can say he is clever. These words describe his character.
