Does "χαρακτήρας" refer to a character in a book, someone's personality, or both (as in English)?

But "personality" is marked wrong

Do you like his personality - is marked as wrong.

Personality is προσωπικότητα. In Luke's example above, it is used as a hyperonyme in order to somehow explain the usage of the word. But it is not the same thing.
