    Ich möchte damit den Unterschied zwischen einer Figur im Drama und eine Figur im Roman beschreiben und dass der Romanauthor explicit oder implizit auf besonderheiten hinweisen kann (z.B. in literarischen caricaturen) und Allgemeinheiten unbeschrieben lässt.

    Do you mean 'characteristics' rather than particularities?

    'induce' can mean 'to cause' or 'produce' as well as 'infer'. So if you mean 'infer', it may be better to use it here.
