Is this sentence correct? Note the expression in bold, please.
In this novel, the author never goes into the depth of Jane's character.
Firstly, she's fictional. If the author has not written this character with depth, then Jane's character doesn't have any depth to go into. It's a mistake to infer that Jane has depths to her character that the author hasn't created or alluded to.
The author doesn't present Jane's character in any depth.
The author does not give any depth to Jane's character.

Does it make sense to replace the word 'character' with 'personality'?
