Attribute = a quality or characteristic that someone or something has

Her greatest attribute is her singing voice

Trait = a particular characteristic that can produce a particular type of behaviour

Aggressiveness is a destructive trait in his character.

Character = the particular combination of qualities in a person that makes them different from others

It is wonderful to see a child's character develop as it grows up.
