    In addition, character is doing what you should, when no one is watching.

    "Character" is much more than that.

    The OP is the equivalent of saying "The alphabet is the letter C".

    A more complete definition would be "a mind set, outward attitude and behaviors that consistently demonstrate positive virtues".

    The pillars that you refer to are based on the moral philosophy of Thomas Aquinas - specifically the Cardinal Virtues.

    My wife was responsible for the character education program for the school district for several years before she retired so I am quite familiar with the subject.
