I'm not going to tell you, but I am going to explain how you can find out.  Take a character and ask these questions:  1.  What does the author say about him/her, 2. What does the character say about him/herself? 3.  What does the character say to others about him/herself or about things in general? 4.  What does the character do or not do?  5. What does someone or something do TO the character?  Choose one of these questions for each character and answer it.  You can't go wrong with these types of characterization.
