American Sign Language: "character" or "characteristics"

To do the sign for "character," draw a small circle in the air in front of the upper left area of your chest (if you are right-handed) with a "C" handshape.  Then move the "C" handshape backward to touch tyour chest.



The sign for "character" can refer to either a "role" filled by an actor or it can refer to a person or thing's characteristics.  Sometimes instead of doing this sign on the upper left chest (if right-handed) you may see this sign done on the palm of the left hand.
