    persona & personality & character

    Are persona, personality and character synonyms ? I looked them up in the dictionary but in vain as they are very confusing.
    Should we say he is a good personality or he has a good personality ?
    He is a good character
    or he has a good character ?

    e.g.
    She is a helpful ( person - persona - personality - character ). She always helps us.

    e.g. Hospitality is part of the Ali's ( person - persona - personality - character ).

    I'd use the phrases in blue.
