I agree with #2 and #3. When we think of Meryl, what stands out is her steadfast nature and her unrequited love for Holling. In the face of his indifference and anger, she maintains her friendship and feelings for Holling showing herself to be a very dedicated and committed individual.

Meryl, who has long had a serious crush on Holling, can be described as forgiving and loyal. When the boy she likes so well and so long blows up at her for what her father has unscrupulously done, then regrets and retracts, and she forgives him and without rancor re-embraces their romance, then she may be described as having the traits of forgiveness and loyalty.

Character traits can be physical or personality traits. If you are focusing on one, I would choose a personality trait. Meryl is a good friend. She stands by Holling durin very difficult times, and she is a strong person. She also is vulnerable at times, such as regarding the run.
