    1. ‘Characteristics’ or ‘traits’ are typically independent of an individual's volition or action and can be either physical, such as sex or hair and eye colour, or cultural, such as ethnicity, caste, or faith.

Furthermore, while some characteristics will obviously change over time, hair colour for example, none, in principle—not even sex—is immutable.
