A character is a possible fact regarded as concerning a particular thing or things.

1907 | The Fourth Curiosity | MS [R] 200:111

The possibility of any definite predicate being true is the being of a corresponding character. That is the signification of the logical term “character.” A character belongs to whatever singulars the corresponding predicate could truly be asserted of; and a character which belongs to anything existent is thereby said itself to exist, and to exist in the singulars of which the predicate is true.
