55. Character as affecting damages.

In civil cases, the fact that the character of any person is such as to affect the amount of damages which he ought to receive is relevant. 

In Section 52, 53, 54 and 55, the word “character” includes both reputation and disposition; but except as provided in Section 54, evidence may be given only a general reputation and general disposition and not of particular acts by which reputation or disposition was shown.
